Question Stem Bank

You will use Newsela's Question Stem Bank for every quiz you work on! We have a bank for each anchor standard, and we ask that your quiz questions are grounded in the question stems and distractor guidelines found here. Please ensure that you are also using a stem from the correct grade level. The stem banks below also link to exemplar questions.


Once you click into each anchor, the stem docs may take a few seconds to load.
