Included are 4 different RAFT’s dealing with Reconstruction. Topics include KKK, Sharecroppers, Abraham Lincoln vs. Congress views, and the 13-15 Amendments.
This is a more creative and exciting way to get students to write. RAFT is a writing strategy that helps students understand their role as a writer and how to effectively communicate their ideas and mission clearly so that the reader can easily understand everything written. RAFT assignments encourage students to uncover their own voices and formats for presenting their ideas about content information they are studying. Students learn to respond to writing prompts that require them to think about various perspectives.
They are easily adjusted to your particular class or if you wish to tweak the topics. Students will appreciate the opportunity to choose 1 or 2 out of the 4 possible RAFT's.
