These are 13 STAAR stem questions for the poem "Saguaros" by Javier Zamora. I use a link to the poet's poem on poetryfoundation.org. They offer a print version or you can have your students visit the website. It also features an audio version of the poem.
I use this poem as a poetry connection during our La Linea novel unit.
I've included an answer page for easy grading, 13 STAAR stem questions, and an answer key with rationale for each answer choice.
