Do you have a strategy for students to meaningfully answer open ended questions? Here's some printables as a visual prompt for your Literacy Center, great for ELL and special needs students!
The students will learn to use the word RACE to help them remember how to answer open ended questions. They should answer the open-ended prompts this way each time.
R - Restate the question in a complete sentence. Example: Do you think children should be allowed to watch as much television as they want to? The students will restate by saying, Children should (or shouldn't) be allowed to watch as much television as they want to.
A - Answer. Students should answer each bullet and together should have at least three details.
C - Connection. Students should make a connection (text to self, text to text, or text to world) to the topic and tell how it relates.
E - Ending. Students wrap up their paragraph with an ending sentence restating the main idea. Example: As you can see, there are many reasons why children should not be allowed to watch as much television as they want.
