Definition: words or phrases that connect ideas, sentences, or paragraphs transitions are. Take Your Writing To The RACES R = Restate Topic A = Answer C = Cite Specific Evidence E = Explain How does the

evidence support the topic? S = Sum It Up RACES We will use the RACES writing strategy to write short responses. R= Restate the Topic Means: Reword or restate the topic and make it into a statement as part of your answer. Your R and your A go together in ONE sentence! Examples: If you were asked, What color is the sky?, you would NOT simply answer, Blue. Instead, you would answer,

The color of the sky is blue. If you were asked in a writing prompt to explain reasons why people bully in the article Tales of Bullying, then you would NOT simply answer, Because they are insecure. Instead, you would restate the topic: In the article Tales of Bullying, people bully others because________________. Now were going to add our A! RACES A= Answer Means: Understand and answer the question you are being asked or the writing prompt to which you are being instructed to respond. Your R and your A should be combined into ONE RA sentence! Example: If the writing prompt is to explain reasons why people bully in the article Tales of Bullying, then your RA sentence would look something like this: In the article Tales of Bullying, people bully others because bullies feel insecure about themselves.

RACES C= Cite Specific Evidence Means: Cite evidence from the text to support your RA statement. This must be relevant evidence! (This is your I and your C from your ICE strategy citing evidence.) Example: According to the text, Some kids bully because they want to fit in. RACES E= Explain Means: Explain how the evidence supports the topic. This is your reasoning for why

your answer is correct. Example: This proves that bullies lack the courage to be individuals instead of going along with the crowd. RACES S= Sum It Up Means: Sum up the explanations for the evidence you used to support your topic in different words. Example: In conclusion, bullies make others feel bad about themselves simply because it makes them feel more popular.

RACES So when you write with your RACES strategy, it should look something like this: (RA statement) In the article Tales of Bullying, people bully others because bullies feel insecure about themselves. (C) According to the text, Some kids bully because they want to fit in. (E) This proves that bullies lack the courage to be individuals instead of going along with the crowd. (S) In conclusion, bullies make others feel bad about themselves simply because it makes them feel more popular. BUT you have to use TWO pieces of evidence in your response. Therefore, you should have TWO Cs and TWO Es! RACES BUT you have to use TWO pieces of evidence in your response. Therefore, you should have TWO Cs and TWO Es!

The basic structures should now look like this: (RA statement) In the article Tales of Bullying, people bully others because bullies feel insecure about themselves. (C) According to the text, Some kids bully because they want to fit in. (E) This proves that bullies lack the courage to be individuals instead of going along with the crowd. (C) Additionally, on page 5, it states, Some people are just insecure or jealous. (E) It can be inferred that bullies feel the need to put others down because of a flaw within themselves that has nothing to do with someone else. (S) In conclusion, bullies make others feel bad about themselves simply because it makes them feel more popular. Word: transitions Bellwork (Do-Now) Tuesday
