Everything you need to kick off cross-curricular "R.A.F.T." (Role, Audience, Format, Topic) writing in your classroom and serves great as a strategy for "Daily-5" writing! Since kids will be writing a wide variety of materials for a wide variety of purposes, RAFT writing is the perfect way to introduce them to that idea!
Includes everything you need to get started with this research based writing technique:
An introduction to R.A.F.T. writing, mini formative assessments, turn and talk opportunities, example R.A.F.T. stories, story analysis with answers included, a fun brain break, a "choice menu" for practicing their own writing skills, extension stories that connect to the sample stories, teacher and student friendly rubrics, etc.
Everything is here all laid out for you, simply show 'n go and you'll have your students ready to use this research based writing technique all year long!
Once you've introduced it, simply display the "Choice Menu" anytime you want students to use this technique and modify the R.A.F.T. portions for any topic/subject accordingly!
