PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

After teaching 6th grade for the past five years, I've become accustomed to the moans and groans that accompany a request for a 6 sentence paragraph. Pulling a 5 paragraph DBQ (Document Based Question) essay was a year long process. Students needed to be able to state a thesis, add details using text evidence, and summarizing the prompt. The students were not writing on grade level and were not addressing the prompts properly.

RADS Writing Process

I used a form to help the students organize their thoughts to process a higher order question. I used scaffolding to help the students build up their writing process. We began as a whole class and completing the RADS using a Doc Camera.

Students can use a worksheet and complete or can use the worksheet as a template and complete in their notebooks.

I like to have students peer edit. The easiest process is to give the students 4 colors of highlighters-a color for Restate, Answer, Details, and Summarize.

This has really helped my middle schoolers build their writing and process a higher order question, support with details, and write a proper summary.
