College & Career Readiness includes specific requirements for student-created argument in both written and spoken tasks. However, not all argument is equally aligned to the SBAC, PARCC, Florida and other state tests. In this session, Kevin Baird takes us step by step in the elements of argumentative writing – what it looks like according to the standards, key elements for priority instruction, and alignment to new assessments. Participants walk away with specific and pragmatic next steps for implementing Argumentation across the curriculum.
