These questions are geared for strengthening your students open response skills using the RACE strategy. Be sure you model the strategy before use. In Reading Street, the story is split into two days, therefore you will see 1 question for each day. I have my students complete the questions after we have read the story in small group and have engaged in discussion.
Now that the students have been use to the R.A.C.E. strategy in Units 1-4. the graphic organizers are taken out so they can employ the strategies without support.
The questions are aligned with the Common Core standards. I hope you enjoy this resource with your students and see your students writing skills improve as the year goes on!
