FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “FREE: How to Answer Text-Based Questions in all Content Areas”

by Darlene Anne
4th - 8th Grade

The Common Core Learning Standards place great emphasis on a student's ability to use text-based evidence in written answers. "RAPS" is a teacher-tested method that provides an easy way for students to recall the organization and requirements of a text-based answer.

Best yet, it can be used in ALL content areas!

RAPS stands for the following:
Restate the topic
Answer the question
Provide specific details
Sum it up

Included in the unit: 
* definitions of key terms
* RAPS poster
* graphic organizer
* worksheet
* sample (ELA) question for students to try
*I have even included an example of an exemplary response for the sample question.

Try this out, and before you know it students will read a question and know immediately if RAPS is required!
