Common Core Question Stems for English Language Arts! The smart way to keep the Common Core and much more, right at your fingertips. No more guessing, no more time spent researching what the standards actually mean, no more coming up with your own questions to be sure you are using the verbiage and rigor your students need. Save yourself HOURS and eliminate the guesswork!
Includes not only the Common Core Standards in their basic form, but the standards have been "broken down" into understandable, accessible, and reasonable goals for teaching. You can be assured that by using these question stems and annotated standards that you are truly addressing the Common Core standards on which your students will be assessed.
Use these question stems to supplement existing materials, to "beef up" your lessons, or for daily skills practice. There's no end to the ways you can implement these question stems in your classroom - you're only limited to your imagination! Best of all, you can be certain and confident that you're hitting the depth of questioning necessary to prepare your students for mastery.
Customize these handy pre-written ELA Common Core question stems and prompts for your needs, and use others "as is" in so many ways! Use them to create formative and summative assessments, to create quizzes and tests, to create worksheets, printables, lessons, and more for whole class or small group instruction.
Question Stems are of varying levels of difficulty and flexible enough for you to use in multiple choice or short response quizzes and tests, in centers, in small groups, or to create your own lessons and activities.
Every question has been meticulously designed and refined to fit each particular common core standard, and will help you either create specific questions for your own materials or allow you to simply "pop" the question into your own tests to ensure that you are helping your students prepare for standardized assessments!
Here's what teachers are saying:
❤️️ I am so obsessed with this product that I bought both the digital and spiral-bound versions. I also gifted my coworker with the 9th - 10th spiral-bound copy. She flipped over it, and said it was one of the best products she'd seen in almost 30 years of teaching! - John L.
❤️️ This is exactly the resource I have been looking for for years. It perfectly compiles question stems with each CCSS.
