Writing a Response Using the R.A.C.E. Strategy
Do Now:
Answer the following questions in your ELA notebook ...

Why is it important to be on time for school every day?

R.A.C.E. Strategy Explained
History is not always about a right and wrong answer. Many times there is more than one “right” answer or there are ways to make an answer “better.”

In order for your response to be truly great, you need to include more than just a simple answer.

In 7th grade we will practice using the R.A.C.E. strategy to develop more complete answers.
Learning Objectives: SWBAT
Explain how to answer constructed response and short answer questions.

Perform a peer review of the RACE strategy.
What is R.A.C.E ?
R: Restate
A: Answer
C: Cite
E: Explain
What is the R.A.C.E. strategy & how does it work?
The R.A.C.E. strategy is used to thoroughly answer a question.

First, writers Restate the question in a complete sentence (
R – RESTATE
).

Then, writers Answer the question in a brief statement (
A – ANSWER
).

Next, writers must go back to the text to look for and Cite the Evidence that best supports their answer (
C- CITE
).

Finally, writers must explain how this evidence supports your answer. Use background knowledge, experience, and connections to build on the answer (
E-Explain
)
R – RESTATE
the question


The person reading your answer should be able to understand exactly what you are talking about without seeing the question.


A
– Gives a specific
ANSWER
to the question.

This should be short and concise (brief or to the point)

C – CITE
evidence (exact words/specific examples)
If you use someone's exact words, you NEED to put them in quotation marks ("Quotes").
Let's try it together!
Copy the following question onto your paper:
According to legend, why do mosquitoes buzz in people's ears?
R - RESTATE the question
Mosquitoes buzz in people's ears because
A - Gives a specific ANSWER to the question
Mosquitoes buzz in people's ears because
they still have a guilty conscience about killing the owlet
.
C – CITE
evidence (exact words/specific examples)
According to the author of "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears,” When the animals figured out the tragedy, they blamed the mosquito who hid from them.
E - EXPLAIN your own personal understanding of this information.
By saying this, it is evident that he does not want the summer to end.
All together now!
Mosquitoes buzz in people's ears because they still have a guilty conscience about killing the owlet. According to the author of "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears,” When the animals figured out the tragedy, they blamed the mosquito who hid from them. Since the mosquito did not speak up in front of King Lion about causing the owl's death, he has a guilty conscience and now buzz in people's ear to see if the other animals are still furious with him.

Now, try it with a partner!
Think back at the story and answer the following question using the R.A.C.E. strategy!
Who else does the narrator say is responsible for the owlet's death?
Be prepared to share your answer!
Use the question stem to begin your response
For Example:
How can students help to stop bullying in their school
?

One way students can help to stop bullying in their school
is by...
Write a complete and correct answer.
For Example:
One way students can help to stop bullying in their school is by
participating in their school wide anti-bullying program.
Explain how your evidence supports your answer
Prove it! Identify where the answer is found.

For Example:
One way students can help to stop bullying in their school is by participating in their school wide anti-bullying program.
According to the author of
Stop Bullying Now
, "research has shown that students who participate in anti-bullying programs in their schools are more likely to have empathy for students who experience bullying.”
E – EXPLAIN
the evidence (or your citation)
You can use your own background knowledge and connections you made from your own experience.
For Example:
One way students can help to stop bullying in their school is by participating in their school wide anti-bullying program. According to the author of
Stop Bullying Now
, "research has shown that students who participate in anti-bullying programs in their schools are more likely to have empathy for students who experience bullying.”
One example of this is a poster contest my school had. The topic was "Stand up to Bullies.” The contest seemed to make students really think about how hurtful bullying can be.
