Do your students often give you just one or two sentences that only vaguely address the day’s journal writing prompt?

One of the effective ways to present a journal entry writing prompt is the RAFT method. RAFTs provide very specific parameters for student to write within.

Since they are so specific students are able to write great pieces independently once they have been introduced to the format. It is helpful to work directly with them for the first week or two until they are comfortably with this method.

Summary: Students will use the RAFT format as a springboard for journal writing.

Objective: To give a specific prompt for student writing.

Target Age: RAFTS can be written to accommodate any age level.

Time: Approximately 1-2 minutes to develop a raft.

Materials needed: Journals for each student.
