The American Revolution Revolutionary War RAFT Activity and Rubric
ELA History Social Studies Common Core: 2.4.8
This is a RAFT strategy activity to use with the topic of The American Revolutionary War. I have included the student direction sheet, and a student example so you can see what a final product can look like. I also have included a rubric that you can use to evaluate the product. Some roles that the students will be able to take on are: patriot, loyalist, King George III and more.
A RAFT is an effective way to get your students thinking beyond simple comprehension questions. It puts your students in a role that they have to become related to the topic of study. They then think critically about that role and write about their feelings to an audience. This is a higher level thinking activity that is easily adaptable for many areas.
