RAFT writing is a way for students to share their ideas and to creatively express what they have learned about a subject.
RAFT is a writing strategy that helps students understand their role and perspective as writers. Students will also gain understanding of the audience they will address with a variety of formats and topics. By using the RAFT strategy, teachers encourage and promote creative writing in all genres from a variety of perspectives.
In my experience as a long-time ELA teacher, many narrative assessment-based writing assignments have students writing from the perspective of different characters or people.
With this resource, students are able to integrate facts from history into their writing. Students can use information and facts learned from class into their while using narrative techniques.
