This is an actual simulation of the Literary Analysis Section of the PARCC to be administered 2015. Included are two passages, each with 3 A/B type questions requiring evidence to support your answer. It includes a writing passage related to the two passages which include a non-fiction passage and a poem about Mardi Gras. This is designed to be used to show students the type of items that they will be asked on the PARCC test including incorporating elements of both passages into an essay. Answer key is included along with the link to the actual PARCC rubric which would be used to score the writing portion of the Test.
