Constructed Response Questions Resource Pack Common Core Aligned
Constructed Response Questions are a part of standardized state tests which require more elaborate answers and explanations of reasoning. 55 pages!!!
For this reason, I have created this pack to assist teachers and students as they begin to write and answer effective constructed response questions.

This is a great pack for students who are beginning to write constructed response questions. This can be adapted and used for grades 2-4. Grade 5 beginners could also benefit. Please check out the preview which includes a full preview into the resource pack to see if it would benefit your students.
The guided practice and the practice students have in the pack is terrific!

Tips to incorporating constructed response questions in the classroom include:
*Having an essential question
*Begin with simple questions and transition to more difficult and more elaborate answers
*Require students to answer all questions in complete sentences
*Add constructed response questions to each test that you give to students
*Have students analyze other student responses to give them a visual of effective answers for constructed response questions

Activities from this pack include the following:
Definition of Constructed Response
