This packet is a great way to start your year by teaching your students the RACE format for answering short response questions. (Restate - Answer - Cite - Explain) It is unique in that the practice application portion comes in the form of short non-fiction passages on 5 of America's favorite athletes who will be competing in the Summer Games in Rio. Athlete passages include :
- Simone Biles
- Michael Phelps
- Paul George
- Tamika Catchings
This is a great way to combine excitement for the Summer Games with showing students expectations for their written responses at the beginning of the school year.
