R.A.C.E. to English Class!

4 Comments

Oh, how happy I am to be your English Language Arts teacher! This week was fun for many reasons. First, our Word of the Week was superlative which is a super over-the-top word. Remember to use the word superlative in conversation or in writing in the next seven days!

Another cool thing about Language Arts this week was learning how to answer text-based questions thoroughly. We learned a handy "recipe" for making sure our answer is complete and convincing. 



Here is an example...



Every month we will practice our text-based responses, so by the end of the year you'll all be experts! This skill will come in handy in all courses from now, through college... and beyond.

Here is a peek at my ELA Notebook. 


The ELA printables should be added, along with your "Word Work" activity.


Homework Due 11/19/14:
  • Sign up for a Newsela account (check k-mail for our class code).
  • Watch this R.A.C.E. Strategy presentation on Prezi. Read through the information and enlarge the text as needed (the zoom icon is on the right). Answer the questions thoroughly in your ELA Notebook.

Thanks for sharing the RACE rubric- Would you mind if I post it on my website for my social studies students? I will cite your site with full credit.
