"Sacrificial" fence

I need to make a rabbet cut on a piece of plywood and am planning on using the dado set to do that. My plan is to clamp a board to the fence to protect it from the blade, a “sacrificial fence” as some describe it. However, I seem to remember an alternative method to achieve the same goal that was pointed out to me while I was getting “checked out” on the table saw. I can’t remember the details of this technique specifically, so if there is such a technique and someone could jog my memory about how it works, I’d appreciate it.

Thank you.

There is a sacrificial fence already. It’s a white melamine board to the right of the saw, against the wall. It has some holes to pass clamps through to attach it to the fence.
