This is the first of many scaffold card packs. Please download this free starter kit which includes the first 4 cards.
My colleagues and I began our "scaffold treasure chests" this year which are filled with laminated, reusable scaffold cards on various topics. Some are reference cards and others are meant for the students to actually write on (dry-erase if you laminate or copy one per student if you want them to keep it).
This kit includes scaffold cards for short answers: RACECE reference card, RACECE with space to write, RADEDE reference card, and RADEDE with space to write. You also get a blank table of contents to keep your scaffolds organized.
This can be used in any subject that requires students to use short answer responses. It is meant to accompany a lesson with a short answer question, and it is not a lesson by itself.
Other scaffold packs coming soon: expository writing, argumentative writing, uses of a comma, ESL writing stems, and many many more!
