This resource is a printable practice booklet to allow your students to practice constructed response questions using the strategy you teach them (RACE, ACE, RADDS, or RACES).
I created this resource because my students needed more practice with the RACE strategy, the strategy for answering constructed response questions that my students use.
I wanted a resource that would specifically allow them to practice the strategy without being overwhelmed with complex or lengthy text. The texts included in this booklet are paragraph length and written at a 3rd-4th grade reading level.
Having my students complete this booklet gives them success with the RACE strategy that they can then apply to more complex text.
This constructed response practice booklet includes:
a cover page
a definition of the strategy page
20 practice texts and questions.
Each text is specifically written with at least two pieces of evidence for the students to use to answer the questions. This will allow the students to successfully practice the strategy.
– fiction stories that are easier. This ideal for introducing the strategy
– nonfiction texts that may be a bit more challenging for your students. Ideal for use after the first ten have been used or even to save for right before state testing as a way to review.
Since not all teachers use RACE, I have also included versions for ACE, two versions of RACES, and a version for RADDS. Each version has the same texts and questions; only the reference to the strategy is changed.
An answer key is included. The answers in the answer key are written using the RACE strategy format. They can be used to have the students assess their own work or used as mentor answers.
