Want your students to practice using appropriate word choice? This RAFT activity allows students to impersonate a food critic and write a review about the worst restaurant they have ever visited.
"On the lines below, write a two to three paragraph review about the worst restaurant that you have ever eaten at. Make sure to use your notes on writing reviews, as well as your notes on Word Choice. Concentrate on creating vivid imagery for your readers, with examples and information as to why this restaurant is horrendous."
