Use RACE to help students organize their open ended responses. Students use this acronym to respond to text with evidence and explanation.
R: Restate the Question
A: Answer the Question
C: Cite (at least) 2 Pieces of Evidence (As always, the more evidence the better!)
E: Explain your Answer (Why does this make sense? Why does this evidence support your answer?)
This document is an answer frame that students can use to organize their written response. The answer frame includes sentence starters to bridge students into using this model independently, as well as a place to "check off" when the student completes each part of the acronym.
