PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a concrete writing formula to help your students write answers to questions that require text evidence. You and your students will love the RACE+ acronym that helps them to remember all of the parts of a good written answer.

R=Restate...use words directly from the question
A=Answer...you have to give an answer
C=Cite...provide an example from the text to support your answer
E=Explain...every example needs to be explained
+=Victory Lap...the things that make an answer even better--in this case, a wrap-up sentence and good conventions

These RACE+ elements are taught to be used in a pattern where the C and E steps repeat (so RA, C, E, C, E, +), leading to a six-sentence answer. I coach the students to view RACE+ as a chef views a recipe...the first several times you make it, you follow it exactly, but as you gain confidence in the procedure, you can adapt it and make it your own a bit more.

This product includes a RACE+ foldable, a fun sample answer, a powerpoint to introduce RACE+ writing formula, a video you can show about assembling the foldable in an interactive notebook, a graphic organizer to help students plan their answers, and scoring guides you can easily add to your existing assignments.
