RACE Writing Response., Teacher Idea
RACE Writing Response.
"The acronym, RACE, stands for each part of a complete constructed response. There are a few versions out there, but I like this one best:
R - restate the answer
A - answer all parts of the question
C - cite evidence
E - explain how your evidence supports your answer."
"Here is a great explanation of the strategy (complete with a rubric) from Mrs. Sol's classroom." Click on the picture to get to the free download.
"Now that my students know how to use the RACE response, I can just say "don't forget the RACE method!" when we are taking a test :) I have seen such an improvement in their responses from the beginning of the year.It makes me so happy to see my students scrawl "RACE" at the top of their answer page, or even to see them planning out their response with each letter before they write it."
