This PARCC Research Task Practice Test adheres to the content and format of the high school practice tests posted on the PARCC website. This 120 minute test is based on excerpts from Muir and Pinchot's arguments pro/con the Hetch Hetchy Valley controversy in Yosemite Park. The test consists of seventeen complex multiple choice questions and one compare and contrast essay question. The included lesson plans provide differentiated instruction in the form of three test versions. Version #1 is a practice test. Version #2 is a practice test with guided reading questions, and Version #3 is a practice test with guided reading questions and reworded answers. Intended to be presented to students, the ANSWER KEY includes highlighted answers, reworded answers, detailed explanations, and a sample essay. The PDF documents may be printed and distributed in hard copy or electronically posted or sent. The DOC files are included if teachers want to reword a question or answer. This PARCC Practice Test can be use with the Essay Handouts in my store, which provide outlines and diagrams for the sample essay provided.
