• At BCS, we are using the RACE(S) strategy for text based writing (answering questions based on a reading). RACE(S)helps students organizes text based writing, a key skill in ELA that they need for success in class as well as on the state assessment.  Here is what each letter of RACE stands for.

    R- Resate the Question

    A- Answer the Question

    C- Cite Evidence

    E- Explain and Extend

    S- Summarize (this is an optional step)
