The Learning RAFT

RAFT is a writing strategy that helps students understand their role as a writer, 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. Using a RAFT strategy in science students are required to demonstrate what they know about a specific concept in great detail providing teachers with a unique way of assessing their students’ understanding of the concept.
