These question stems come directly from the SBAC blueprint available online at smarterbalanced.com. I have found it helpful to use this document when planning out questions I want to ask my students. These can be used to go along with interactive read alouds, guided reading books, leveled literacy intervention books and more. Being exposed to these questions will help students to become familiar with the language of the SBAC. They are also common core aligned, which is a nice feature.
