This student friendly handout provides the following:
* description of RAFT strategy
* brainstorming for writing activity
* prewriting planning activity
* list of formats
* 4 RAFT templates
The RAFT strategy is great for output (left side) pages in the interactive notebook, and it is can be used as a formative assessment, too! This strategy really emphasizes the creative and critical thinking processes. Students often generate products that far surpass my expectations. If you are looking for a great creative writing exercise, or you just want students to use multiple perspectives when thinking about your content, this is the strategy for you. I have provided dozens of format ideas, but the possibilities are endless.
