This is a simple and effective graphic organizer to post in your classroom. It is detailed, yet concise, and explains to your students what a RAFT writing assignment entails...
R = ROLE OF THE WRITER
A = AUDIENCE
F = FORMAT
T = TOPIC
I suggest printing these out in color, cutting them out, and backing them on some butcher paper or construction paper, to be displayed on your wall(s). We do several RAFT assignments in my classroom, and my students refer to this RAFT bulletin board display very frequently.
