Test prep for the sake of test prep is drudgery and actually turns students off to the idea of assessment. That is because, even on the PARCC, the material used may be original, but it is rarely engaging. The PARCC Double Passage Practice, #2 exercise, included here, is motivational, riveting, original material that just happens to also be formatted to fit PARCC passages and questions. My passages will make your students great test takers, better readers and writers, and enthusiastic readers for life; I promise!!! Like everything else I have on TPT, this too has been "kid-tested" and is sure to please!
