Pacing guide posted by Barrons 

Part 1: Listening for Information and Understanding
You will listen to a lecture or a speech and answer 8 multiple-choice questions about key ideas in the passage. The lecture or speech will be read twice. You may take notes at any time during the readings, and you may use your notes in answering the multiple-choice questions.
Part 2: Reading for Information and Understanding
You should expect to read a literary passage plus an informational passage and answer 6 multiple-choice questions on basic comprehension of main ideas, vocabulary, and interpretation for each passage.
Part 3: Reading and Writing for Literary Response
You will read two literature selections (from fiction, poetry, memoir, or literary non-fiction) that are linked by a common theme, answer 5 multiple-choice questions on key ideas, details, vocabulary, and answer two short constructed response questions—one on the controlling idea and one on a literary element or technique from one of the passages.
Part 4 Reading and Writing for Critical (Literary) Analysis and Evaluation
In this part, you are required to write a critical essay in which you discuss two works of literature you have read from the particular perspective of a statement that is provided as a “critical lens.” Your interpretation of the “lens” and response to it become the controlling idea for your essay. Here you must interpret a sophisticated prompt, develop a critical point of view in response to that prompt, and develop that critical point of view with detailed reference to two works. You must also use specific references to appropriate literary elements to show how the chosen works support your opinion.
