The ELA PARCC for high school is a challenging assessment of close reading skills and analytical writing. For states that have adopted the Common Core, the stakes of student success on this exam are higher than ever. That's where this collection of question stems comes in!

Here, you will find over 200 sample question stems to use as templates for close reading that will prepare your students for PARCC while simultaneously encouraging critical thinking about fiction and non-fiction. These question stems target skill such as:

Text Purpose, Structure, and Audience
Literary Elements
Literary Techniques
Rhetorical Devices
Non-fiction & Informational Texts
Textual Evidence
Word Meaning in Context
Drawing Conclusions
Making Inferences

and MORE!

For the high school PARCC exam, students must write both a literary analysis essay and synthesize an argument using various pieces of foundational non-fiction. The sample essay prompts included in this packet will enable you to focus your essay prompts on writing tasks for college readiness.

However, these question stems are not just for PARCC! Use them for prepping students in Advanced Placement as well as other non-Common Core state exams where close reading & writing is assessed for graduation.
