This RACES Writing Strategy is great for helping students with their writing! The RACE Strategy is "Restate the question, answer the question, cite your source and explain the evidence". The "CE" gets repeated so it's "RACE-CE-S" to support the writer with citing two sources. The "S" is added at the end so that students can summarize their writing / restate their topic sentence (which is their conclusion).
This worksheet is set up as AVID 3-column notes. Use as a template for students to take notes, or printed for students to complete as a worksheet. It can also be printed larger as a poster for the wall.
**This source can be used as an outline for a four paragraph essay instead with the "RA" as the first paragraph, the first "CE" as the second paragraph, the repeated "CE" as the third paragraph and the "S" as the fourth / conclusion paragraph.
