SBAC Teacher’s Guide: Argumentation Performance Task


The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is a comprehensive suite of standards-aligned assessments. By implementing the JSWP terminology, color-coding, and thinking process, teachers will successfully guide students to write successful arguments on the SBAC. Strategies include teaching the concession, the counterclaim, and the refutation, as well as synthesizing multiple articles with relevant concrete details and insightful commentary.
