PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How it works: The first page is a grid I use when the ELA state exam is approaching. First, I teach the students to score short answers themselves so they can peer assess and ultimately self assess their answers.

Use the ten task cards below to show the students common errors that students make. These cards are using the formulas RADD- Restate, answer, detail 1, detail 2 which also works as RACECE- Restate, answer, cite a quote, explain, cite a second quote, explain. The most difficult part, I find, is the original answer. Many students think “restating” (which isn’t even actually necessary, but we teach it since it makes the answer sound more refined) is their answer, but it’s not.

I recommend laminating these cards since color ink is precious. Then students can write on them using dry erase markers. OR print the front side of the cards and make copies and then print one answer key per table in color.

The point of these is to show kids how to look at a student ANSWER. So the passage doesn’t even matter (and therefore not included). You’re just teaching the students to examine a short answer for all parts.

This works for grades 6, 7, 8 and should be used right before ELA test prep for reading comprehension short answer questions.
