This is the fifth set of poems in my Paired Poetry Series. Each set features two classic poems and 15 multiple choice questions in PARCC format. This set includes "We Real Cool" by Gwendolyn Brooks and "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost. There are questions for each poem and questions that use both poems. This set focuses on literary elements and tone.
I use these sets for test prep and poetry practice in my classroom. They can also be used as bell ringers or homework! You can choose to do more with the poems or just this activity. If divided, the questions can serve as quizzes for the separate poems.
All files are Microsoft Word and completely editable.
