Welcome Back and I hope that you are eager to start off the remainder of the 2011-2012 school year!!
Today we will read and respond to a handout “What is the purpose of school?”
You will need to compose a response to
What is the purpose of school?
Use the RACE method to compose your response: reword, answer, cite and explain.
To understand and answer constructed response essay questions, the easiest way is to memorize the acronym “RACE” – this stands for reword, answer, cite and explain. If you are able to restate a question, provide an answer using evidence cited from the prompt given, and then explain how that evidence does, in fact, support the answer, you will probably score well on all constructed responses.
