RAT Short Answers

Found in: test taking & study skills

Here a neat way to help students learn to write a short answer. We call it RAT. Our version stands for Restate the Question, Answer the Question and Tie it to the Text. We practice answering questions using the RAT method. I give them a short reading and then give them an open-ended question to RAT. They write their answers, and I ask for volunteers to read them. As a class, we talk about what grade we give would and why.
