The high stakes assessments that states are now administering use a rubric where not only is a correct response required by students, but also a justification or rationale for that response is needed for a higher score on the item. The AREA approach discussed in this article is an excellent strategy that both students and teachers can successfully employ in answering questions either in writing or in public speaking.
