The R.A.C.E: Responding to Reading BUNDLE includes the R.A.C.E Responding to Reading Strategies as well as the Assessment Booklets.
R.A.C.E. is a reading response strategy that gives students an outline on the most effective way to answer a question while meeting the Common Core State Standards of citing textual evidence. It can be used for both stating what the text says explicitly as well as for making evidence based inferences.
R.A.C.E. is an acronym for the following:
Restate the question
Answer the question completely
Cite evidence from the text
Explain or Extend your answer
Included in the original R.A.C.E materials is a page for a Reader's Notebook explaining R.A.C.E. and how to use it, assessment, and examples for assessment. Plus you get all of the Assessment Booklets described below.
The Assessment booklets are a way for teachers to assess students learning using a variety of CCSS. There are example questions as well as booklets that leave the question blank so that you may choose which CCSS you are trying to assess for both Literary and Informational text. Included in this compressed zip file are excerpts from:
