I have used the RAFTS writing process in my classroom for quite some time as I found that it gave students an easy structure to use in their writing process and allowed them to increase their written fluency.
These are assignments I use to work on developing RAFTS writing and to support paragraph structure writing. It engages reluctant readers by engaging them with various youtube clips of different pop culture clips. It allows students to plan their assignment with proper paragraph structure while also giving them a Role, Audience, Format, Topic, and Strong Verb.
Included in this package are the following assignments (which can also be purchased separately):
* "The Minions" Going Bananas"
* "The Incredibles: Jack, Jack Attack."
* "The Minions: Orientation Day"
* "Lifted" by Pixar
* "Monster's Inc- Mike's New Car"
