Common Core ELA Regents
  • Will be built on balance of literature and nonfiction and will demand close reading and text based writing. No way to really prep except to be engaging in aligned practices or using the modules – one or the other.
  • Exam captures the integrated model of literacy we see in the standards

Common Core ELA Regents
  • Part 1 – reading comprehension with 24 questions requiring close reading and an understanding of the whole text, one literary nonfiction, one literature piece and likely one poem. Incorrect answers are text based and plausible and based on likely misconceptions if they didn’t understand full text.
  • Part 2 – writing from sources different from a DBQ so no comparison, it will not allow for drawing upon outside knowledge, must draw on text only, writing a source based argument. Part 2 is significant emphasis and likely will be weighted as such.
  • Part 3 – text analysis, not an extended response as in Part 2. Two to three paragraph response that identifies a central idea, authors writing strategy or literary technique
