Creating Constructive Responses using the RACE and RACES Strategies


RACE Writing Strategy


Some students either fail to answer written questions or give shallow responses that lack details. Many even go off topic which is a clear indication that they did not understand what the question was asking. To help alleviate this problem experts suggest using a targeted strategy such as RACE and RACES. These simple mnemonic devices can help students to remember the essential parts of a strong answer.

Each resource set contains the following:

1 full colored general RACE/S poster (with border)
1 full colored general RACE/S poster (without border)
1 black and white version
1 full colored RACE/S poster with detailed outline (with border)
1 full colored RACE/S poster with detailed outline (without border)
1 black and white version
1 set of 3 colored bookmarks with detailed outline 

I created these for students who need visual references when writing. These posters and bookmarks are recommended for older students but can be used with the lower classes with teacher support.
