This power point is geared towards giving students a way to remember simple steps, using RULE, for answering short response questions. It introduces students to various key words and their meanings commonly used on state exams. It also introduces students to the mnemonic RULE and the meaning and process expected for each step. In addition, it includes an I Do example where the process of RULE has been applied to a sample short response question, a second example to be used as a WE DO in which the steps in RULE are applied as a class, a third example in which the students pair up in a YA’LL DO and complete the process of RULE together, and finally a passage and short response question that the student will complete as a YOU DO. In the YOU DO students apply rule to the question and write the short response answer as well.
