This is a differentiated RAFT activity. The RAFT stands for Role, Audience, Format, and Topic. This is a creative way to get your students writing from a different point of view about a topic. The range of writing activities offers a variety of publishing options from a postcard flip book, and song, all the way to a PowerPoint and Video Recording.
After studying violent weather -- specifically hurricanes, tornadoes, and tsunamis, introduce this activity to your students. . This is perfect to use in your Daily 3 classroom. Students will be so engaged in the different writing activities, they will want to do more than just one! It will allow you to pull groups while they work independently.
