Scaffold! My student come in to fourth grade struggling majorly with extended response and writing. Help them by beginning the year with practice! Restate, Answer, Cite, Explain is a strategic method of ensuring maximum achievement when writing paragraphs, answering extended response questions, and responding to reading!
I created this to begin the 2018-19 School year--front-loading this strategy--to build writing skills straight out of the gate!
This workbook includes posters and student printables to use as a daily reminder resource. Also, lessons use the gradual release method approach (I do, We Do, You Do). There are two practices for simply Restate...two for Answer...two for Cite...and to for Explain. Each activity incorporates the previous skill learned, eventually leading into "Putting it all together".
Texts are intended to be of lower level and are not complex. Using too difficult of texts right off the bat can make learning this process much too difficult (learned from experience!).
Let me know how it works or if anything needs edited!! Thanks for looking!!
Answer keys included!!!!!
