This 9-page document is incredibly useful for a final exam. Insert these 4 parts easily into any English final assessment. The best part is that they reflect on the NYS English Regents Exam (the new test as of January 2011), and shifts towards text-based questioning. The document includes a short story comprehension section, complete with the story and 5 text-based multiple choice questions. The questions are followed with a paragraph writing assignment on theme from the short story, similar to question 26 from the Regents Exam. Next is poetry comprehension, complete with 2 poems and 10 text-based multiple choice questions. Lastly the students write a paragraph on a literary technique from the one of the poems, similar to question 27 from the Regents Exam. A multiple choice answer key is included, complete with rubrics for the writing tasks. To be clear, this document does not tell the teacher who is buying it how to teach these parts of the exam or how to create a final grade for the test. Also, it is important to note that the document IS NOT exact to the Regents Exam, but parallels the assessment of the Regents Exam. If you purchase this product you will greatly appreciate the thought and effort that went into these 4 parts of a final, and benefit from having it all completed for you. Thank you for your interest!
