STAAR testing is coming up, so I created this review packet for my students. I teach 11th grade, but this packet is good for any student preparing for the Reading and Writing sections of the STAAR.
This packet contains three reading selections (informational text), 2 short answer questions (over a paired passage), and 8 practice persuasive prompts. The prompts are attached to the persuasive essay lined writing boxes to simulate an actual test-taking environment for students.
The reading selections are each followed by 10 reading comprehension questions.
I have used STAAR prompt and question stems for all of the material. I have also included the Answer Key for the Reading Comprehension Questions and the STAAR rubric for persuasive prompts (provided by TEA).
I hope these resources help your students (and mine!) to get over the STAAR hurdle.
