is a structure to help students answer passage-based, short response questions in a formal style, with using clear reasons and evidence from the text, and to provide concluding statements.
Why use the R2D2 strategy?
This mnemonic device is especially helpful for struggling writers and students with disabilities, but it can also be a helpful scaffold for all students. It teaches students to do what good writers do naturally—restating the question in a complete sentence, answering all parts of the question, citing evidence and fully explaining.
R: respond to the question
2D: provide two details
2: bring the response together
