Writing 101: Perfecting the Paragraph Using the R.A.C.E. Strategy
Restate the following questions in your writing section and answer each one using a full sentence:
What did you do last night when you got home from school?
Why is it important to be on time for school every day?
If you don’t know a friends number, how might you find it?
R.A.C.E. Strategy Explained
English is not always about right and wrong answers. 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 a truly great response, you need to include more than just a simple answer.
Ways to restate a question and make a full sentence:
Last night when I got home from school I…
It is important to be on time for school every day…
If I don’t know a friends number I could…
What is R.A.C.E. an acronym for?
What is the R.A.C.E. strategy & how does it work?
The R.A.C.E strategy is a method used to thoroughly answer a question.
First, writers restate the question in a full sentence (R – RESTATE).
Then, writers answerthe 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 formulate a concluding sentence, and explain their own personal understanding about the information(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.
This information can be found right in the question!
A – Gives a specific ANSWER to the question.
This should be short and concise (brief or to the point)
Your answer may or may not come directly from the story. It may be your own opinionated statement based on how you interpret the text.
C – CITE EVIDENCE (exact words/specific examples) from the text that support your answer.
If you use someone else's exact words you NEED to put them in quotation marks ("Quotes").
You want to be selective about the evidence you choose to include in your response. Be sure to choose evidence that BEST SUPPORTS YOUR ANSWER.
E - EXPLAIN your own personal understanding of this information and how it supports your answer
Consider what you think this might mean for the charadcters, theme, or conflict of the story.
Connect this information to a greater understanding about life, love, relationships, conflict, etc.
Let's try it together!
Copy the following question into your notes:
How many habits do highly successful high school students commonly have?
R - RESTATE the question
Highly successful high school students most commonly have
A - Gives a specific ANSWER to the question
C - CITE EVIDENCE (exact words/specific examples) from the text that supports your answer
In the text, the author states that she sees that most successful students in high school and life have similar habits and that there are seven of them.
These seven habits are being organized, asking questions, having support, focusing on learning, reading independently, being well-mannered, and having fun in school.
