RAFT: An Approach to Teaching English Reading and Writing

16/01/2018

Interesting idea at http://www.readingrockets.org/strategies/raft

Excerpt:

RAFT is a writing strategy that helps students understand their roles as writers, the audience they will address, the varied formats for writing, and the topic they’ll be writing about. By using this strategy, teachers encourage students to write creatively, to consider a topic from a different perspective, and to gain practice writing for different audiences.
