PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

RACE 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 RACE 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: Re-state the question
A: Answer all parts of the question
C: Cite the text to provide evidence
E: Explain your citation
 
This Download Contains:
♦ Student resource introducing the RACE strategy
♦ Example passage and RACE response
♦ 10 passages and short response questions

Passages are 4th-6th grade reading level. They are arranged in order of increasing difficulty. Easy to differentiate! This ready-to-use printables are great for formative assessments or test-prep!
