I have used the RAFTS writing process in my classroom for quite some time as I found that it gave students an easy structure to use in their writing process and allowed them to increase their written fluency.
This is an assignment I use to work on developing RAFTS writing and to support paragraph structure writing. It engages reluctant readers by engaging them with a youtube clip of "The Minions." It allows students to plan their assignment with proper paragraph structure while also giving them a Role, Audience, Format, Topic, and Strong Verb.
This assignment is also part of my RAFTS bundle available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/RAFTS-Bundle-Package-3933069
