Preparing students for the SBAC PT test can be stressful. This resource is one that we use in our classes to introduce what the test will look like and help ease testing anxiety. This unit came from our usual “Video Games & Violence” unit where we have students write an argumentative paper based off of sources as a writing work sample. We adjusted this unit to be formatted like a performance task to help students prepare for the test.
This is a great way to not only teach argumentative writing, but also include some test prep by walking students through a full length practice of the test!
