Do your students need support when it comes to reading and responding to paired passages? Paired texts are becoming more and more common on standardized tests. This free student guide is an excellent way to prepare your students.

This Download Contains:

♦ 2 passages

♦ an exemplar response to a short response question

♦ guide to the RACE Strategy for paired passages

RACE is a structure to help students answer passage-based, short response questions in a formal style, with using clear reasons and evidence from the text, and to provide concluding statements.

R: Re-state the question

A: Answer all parts of the question

C: Cite the text to provide evidence

E: Explain your citation

Why use the RACE strategy? RACE is a mnemonic device that helps students write open-ended constructed responses. This strategy is especially helpful for struggling writers and students with disabilities, but it can also be helpful scaffolding for all students. It teaches students to do what good writers do naturally—re-stating the question in a complete sentence, answering all parts of the question, citing evidence and fully explaining.
