What is a raft

What is a RAFT?

The RAFTs Technique (Santa, 1988) is a system to help students understand their role as a writer, the audience they will address, the varied formats for writing, and the expected content.

The RAFT Strategy is a writing technique that offers students a creative way to demonstrate understanding. Students take on an unusual point of view while writing for a specific audience. This is a great differentiation strategy because teachers can develop any number of possible RAFT’s that can be adjusted for skill level and complexity. Teachers can offer student choice, appealing to their interests and learning profiles, while adapting to student readiness levels. The possibilities for the RAFT categories are endless and the products are very creative.

Raft purpose

RAFT: Purpose

The purpose of RAFTs is to give students a fresh way to think about approaching their writing. It occupies a nice middle ground between standard, dry essays and free-for-all creative writing. RAFTs combines the best of both. It also can be the way to bring together students' understanding of main ideas, organization, elaboration, and coherence...in other words, the criteria by which compositions are most commonly judged.

Raft an acronym that stands for

RAFT: an acronym that stands for:

Role of the Writer - Who are you as the writer? Are you Sir John A. Macdonald? A warrior? A homeless person? An auto mechanic? The endangered snail darter?

Audience - To whom are you writing? Is your audience the Canadian people? A friend? Your teacher? Readers of a newspaper? A local bank?

Format - What form will the writing take? Is it a letter? A classified ad? A speech? A poem?

Topic / Time - What's the subject or the point of this piece? Is it to persuade a goddess to spare your life? To plead for a re-test? To call for stricter regulations on logging
