FREEBIE! This is a writing practice for daily warm up/ journal reflection activity which encourages the student write opinion pieces on topic or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information.
It focuses on the first writing Common Core State Standard which helps the student introduce a topic or text clearly, state an opinion, and create an organizational structure in which related ideas are grouped to support the writer's purpose. With the use of RACE strategy, it also helps to provide reasons that are supported by facts and details and provide a strong concluding statement.
Modifications for exceptional needs students in a self-contained or inclusive setting:
- Enlarged text
- Modified (shortened/simplified) text
- Graphic organizer
- Bolded/highlighted key words
First, let me say that I am so appreciative of all the SpEd resources in your shop. Second, regarding this freebie, I LOVE the RACE strategy!!!!! (Seriously, I cannot put enough exclamation points to express my love) I've never seen it before, but it is perfect for what we are asking our students to do now. Can't wait to introduce it to my students after the break.
Thank YOU! Please spread the word to your colleagues about our shop...yep, we finally have it! I will be uploading more soon, so please stay tuned! I posted a link from your store to my blog: Teacher Sol’s FUNSHINE :)
