ELT Writing: RAFT Strategy

21/07/2017

Great ideas in Using the RAFT Writing Strategy at http://www.readwritethink.org/professional-development/strategy-guides/using-raft-writing-strategy-30625.html

Excerpt:

RAFT assignments encourage students to uncover their own voices and formats for presenting their ideas about content information they are studying.  Students learn to respond to writing prompts that require them to think about various perspectives:

  • Role of the Writer: Who are you as the writer? A movie star? The President? A plant?
  • Audience: To whom are you writing? A senator?  Yourself? A company?
  • Format: In what format are you writing? A diary entry? A newspaper?  A love letter?
  • Topic: What are you writing about?
