I love to give my students RAFT writing tasks, and I am sure you will, too! It gives students an authentic reason to write and makes it more fun. Many of my students who were reluctant to write actually began to enjoy it, because they were able to take on different roles for different purposes using a variety of formats. It also enriches those higher students, because they have to put themselves into the role go another and really think about the voice they will use.
