Description

Teach your students the RACE or RACES writing strategy for answering text-based questions. This method helps students respond to open-ended questions. Students (and teachers!) love this constructed response writing strategy for citing text evidence and extending responses.

When students don't know how to start, they don't write quality answers. This method provides a concrete set of steps for students to follow as they answer questions. The RACE strategy provides confidence.

The FIRST LESSON IS INCLUDED! You'll feel confident when you introduce the strategy and present the lesson to your class. Complete directions and a differentiated example passage are included! The passage is provided in 2 levels - choose the level that your students need or differentiate for individual students!

The RACE or RACES strategy is easy for students to remember. Each step is a key component students must include when writing strong responses to text-based questions.

You'll choose RACE or RACES:

R - Restate the question

A - Answer the question

C - Cite the text evidence

E - Explain and extend the evidence

RACES:

R - Restate the question

A - Answer the question

C - Cite the text evidence

E - Explain and extend the evidence

S - Summarize your answer

  • Several differentiated worksheets for student practice - choose the level your students need
  • Student reference cards
  • Bookmarks - with and without reference directions
