This book report RAFT has students caught up in the action of the Stormbreaker story by playing different roles: MI-6 Design team, NEWSTime Magazine Reporter, Herod Sayle, Author/Illustrator and a Movie Critic.

Your kids will love reliving the major events in this fast-paced story by assuming these different roles.

RAFT is an acronym for Role Audience Format Topic.

Students choose a role they want to assume and, based on that role, are given a format and topic for a specific audience. RAFTs are great ways to embed differentiated instruction in your classroom.

This RAFT can be used as an independent homework project, or an extended literacy unit.

I've included a potential scoring rubric and additional mini-lesson ideas & Student Planning Templates for each of the RAFT role choices for successful presentations.
