Product Description
Nonfiction is increasingly becoming more and more represented on standardized tests, and these questions can be tricky—especially on tests such as PARCC or AP. So, I sought out to create STANDARDIZED TEST prep “close reading” questions in MULTIPLE CHOICE format in order to model standardized tests because I saw that I needed more resources such as this for my own students.

This product includes an 18-question close reading of the "Declaration of Independence" using PARCC & Common Core question stems in multiple choice format. The text comes from the public domain.

It is important that students practice reading the diction and style of American "foundational texts" and authors because they are included on the "Simulated Research" portion of the PARCC exam.

This close reading activity will target comprehension and analytical skills while exposing students to the types of documents they will analyze on the PARCC exam. Have your students try it individually and then with a group to compare answers. For teachers who do not give PARCC, these questions are still excellent test-prep questions for your state's own standardized test.

Answer key included.
