STAAR Reading question stems for grade levels 5-8. I typed out ALL questions for all four grade levels from the 2011, 2013 & 2014 STAAR released assessments and separated the questions into categories: POETRY, DRAMA, FICTION, NONFICTION, EXPOSITORY, PERSUASIVE, PAIRED SELECTIONS. Teachers can use the appropriate questions for whatever selection they are choosing to read in class. These question stems will also assist teachers when creating their own assessments for their students. Students will become familiarized with key words and phrases from the questions and help prepare them for STAAR success.
