    I'm still struggling to wrap my head around PARCC and what is going to be on it. Anyone else feeling this way? :dizzy:

    Is this correct so far?

    Grade 5 PARCC

    PBA - Focused on writing; students will read/view a video and then write about it. Is this the argument writing?

    EOY - Focused on reading comprehension; students will read texts and answer MC and OE questions.

    Try looking here for some example questions that will give you an idea of the structure and style.

    PBA is three days I believe. We have been told to expect two fiction and one non-fiction. Writing is narrative, literary analysis and research. Narrative will be based on one text, lit analysis on two, and research on two texts and a video.

    Samples look extremely difficult.

    They are daunting! If you miss one half of the question, it's difficult to bounce back for the second. That's why we're going to do some practice acclimation to the new rigor in the next few months.
