This graphic organizer goes along with the Voice trait from 6+1 Traits of Writing. The RAFT method is used to help students write fluently and purposefully for an auidence, often making them shift their perspective as a writer.
Role--Who are you?
Audience--Who are you writing to?
Format--What kind of writing will you do? (letter, poem, story)
Topic--What do you want to talk about/discuss?
This G.O. can be used all the way from 1st grade through 5th! :)
