PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This end-of-the-novel writing activity provides students with three opportunities to practice responding in writing to a constructive response. This activity uses the RACES (restate, answer, cite, explain and summarize) acronym to aid students in formulating their response. Additionally, there are sentence starters and transitional phrases listed on the three graphic organizers to aid students in writing an organized response. More scaffolding is included by providing students with direct quotes from the novel to aid in writing an effective constructive response. For more advanced students, you may want to take out the provided quotes and have them skim through the text to find their evidence.I used this in my co-teaching classroom with struggling learners, so we provided scaffolds to aid student success.
