I have had the most success preparing students for End of Course English testing by giving them multiple practice with the same questions stems.
I like to have them try two questions, teach a little bit and review, and then try two more until they get to the end. this allows you to see if they are progressing. Students also feel more confident in their ability after the repetition of practice.
I chose these two skills because they seem to be their most difficult tested item.
This comes with the added benefit of giving them close reading practice with shorter texts so you can fit more practice into one lesson.
I used this mostly for Common Core 10th grade.
