Introduce, scaffold, and extend the R.A.C.E. writing strategy in grades 4-8. With this resource, your students will learn to write strong constructed responses through clear explicit expectations. Tiered graphic organizers allow for easy differentiation. Each step in this progressive system adds a level of complexity - and students master each element of constructed responses before moving to the next step.
Your students will clearly and concisely restate questions, answer inferential questions, cite strong evidence - AND finally master the "E" in R.A.C.E.! We are so excited to share our hard-earned insight with you and help you guide your students to write effective explanations for their evidence!
Included in this resource:
- Detailed Teacher Directions
- Student Copies of each graphic organizer - including expectations for each element of R.A.C.E.
- Rubrics for each step - allow for effective, efficient assessment and feedback
