WHY RISC? 1. It works across content areas and grade levels. 2. It incorporates literacy standards WITH content standards. 3. It adds rigor to reading and writing. 4. It generates formative assessment to inform subsequent instruction. 5. It can drive a unit of study because it can expand in rigor. For example, a writing RISC can begin as an exit slip or a paragraph and progress to an essay and eventually a research paper or project.
