This packet coincides with the PARCC Grade 6 ELA released items from the Pearson PARCC website. The stories you will need include excerpt from "Boy's Life," "Emancipation: A Life Fable," "The Stripes Will Survive," "Zoos Go Wild," "Beautiful Macaws and Why They Need Enrichment," and excerpt from "Magic Elizabeth."
This packet includes an overall study guide for each of the three ELA tasks: Literary Analysis, Research Simulation Task, and Narrative Task. I've included steps to prewrite for the essays and sample essays for both the Literary Analysis and Research Simulation Task.
This product strictly teaches test prep with regard to preparing for the writing portions of the PARCC; there is nothing in this product about multiple choice.
This is appropriate for grades 5, 6, and 7.
