This 25-page document supplies the NYS Regents teacher with activities, examples, and directions on how to formulate answers for all of Part 3 of the Regents Exam. The packet includes information on how to read poetry; a poem by Galway Kinnell, titled "The Bear"; an activity worksheet for the poem; the short story, "To Build a Fire"; an activity worksheet for short story; a Part 3 directions page complete with multiple choice questions for both passages, and question 26 and 27; directions for questions 26, including information on creating controlling ideas; and lastly, directions on question 27, complete with information on creating controlling ideas. This packet is a concise compilation of information that fits closely with the sample from the state. Use it as a Unit in your curriculum, or as practice before the big test. Please understand that the packet is designed for students, but does not include directions for the teacher on how to teach from the packet. I think you'll be highly impressed with the amount of detail, however; and the ease in using the materials.
