7/8/21 – ELA – R.A.C.E. Strategy and Biographical Poem

Virtual Learning

Today we learned how to use the R.A.C.E. strategy to help up create well rounded answers for short response questions. Short answer responses will be a big focus this summer and going forward in all subjects throughout middle school. We also started our Biographical Poems about a person we chose during class time. Please complete your draft in the Jamboard by following this link: https://jamboard.google.com/d/1MW6QjXqjQwLez2SaaCmlGwNx8f7x4GUjdSv4vYo6TGw/edit?usp=sharing

Tonight’s homework will be to input our complete Bio Poem into the google form at the bottom of this page and then to create a visually appealing version of our poem by including images, drawing pictures, creating a poster, or by any other creative medium you can think of around the written poem we create. This can be done digitally or on paper. Please email me a picture, scanned copy, or file of your completed and decorated poem. The structure for the Bio Poem and the description of the R.A.C.E. strategy can be seen below.
