The RAFT strategy uses writing-to-learn activities to enhance understanding of informational text. The writing is done in a non-traditional format that encourages creative thinking and motivates students to reflect in unusual ways about concepts they have read. Students process information rather than retell factual answers.
R = Role A = Audience F = Format T = Topic
How to Use the Strategy:
**Teacher may also decide to allow students to choose their own Role, Audience, and Format around a particular Topic of study.
