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 this packet is a page for a Reader’s Notebook explaining R.A.C.E. and how to use it, assessment, and examples for assessments.
