1 Answering CRQs Using R.I.C.E. Strategy and Presentation Developed by Phyllis Benoit

2 Constructed Response Questions Open-ended, short answer questions Require students to analyze and respond to a document

3 What is R.I.C.E.? R.I.C.E. is a writing strategy developed to equip students with a practical tool they can use to answer CRQs across the curriculum.

4 Why is it important to have a strategy to answer CRQs? LEAP 21 (grades 4, 8) LEAP 21 (grades 4, 8) iLEAP (grades 5, 7, 9) iLEAP (grades 5, 7, 9) GEE 21 (grades 10, 11) GEE 21 (grades 10, 11) Students in grades 4-11 must be tested as part of the state accountability program. Students must read and respond to CRQs at EVERY grade level in ELA, Science, and Social Studies.

5 Answering Constructed Response Questions Using R.I.C.E. Constructed Response Questions are open-ended, short answer items which require you to analyze and respond to a document such as a reading passage, poem, short story, political cartoon, graph, map, chart, timeline, photo, painting or official document such as the Constitution.

6 R.I.C.E. (and gr__________) R = ________= _________________________ R = ________= ________________________________________________________________ I = ________ = _________________________ I = ________ = ________________________________________________________________ C = ________ = _________________________ C = ________ = ________________________________________________________________ E = ________ = _________________________ E = ________ = ________________________________________________________________

7 R.I.C.E. R= restate I = interpret C = connect E = explain (extend, extra)

8 R.I.C.E. R=restate=turn the question into a statement I =interpret=figure out what the question is asking and give an answer. asking and give an answer. C =connect=back up your answer with a fact from your document*; because from your document*; because E = explain= extend your answer with extra information from your document*; information from your document*; must be relevant; In fact, must be relevant; In fact, DOCUMENT=whatever resource you are using including things like a reading passage, poem, a political cartoon, a chart, map, graph, timeline, photo, painting, etc.

9 We will learn the procedure for answering constructed response questions and then practice it. That way, you will become very proficient at answering these questions correctly. Before we get into the specific strategy for answering CRQs using R.I.C.E., here are a few general pointers to keep in mind.

10 Write as neatly as possible Write as neatly as possible Spell as accurately as possible Spell as accurately as possible Never begin with because, yes or no, true or false and NEVER use cause or cuz in place of because. Never begin with because, yes or no, true or false and NEVER use cause or cuz in place of because. Always go back to re-read your answer to see if it makes sense and to check for capital letters, end marks, a complete sentence, correct spelling, etc. Always go back to re-read your answer to see if it makes sense and to check for capital letters, end marks, a complete sentence, correct spelling, etc.

11 RICE PRACTICE (start simple, stressing the components of the strategy) Example 1: What day is it? R (restate) It is I (interpret and answer) Monday C (connect--because) because yesterday was Sunday. E (explain, extend, extra) In fact, it is the beginning of another week. It is Monday because yesterday was Sunday. In fact, it is the beginning of another week.

12 More RICE Practice 83% 11% 3% 1% 2% Example 2: What is the major religion in India? Religions in India

13 The major religion in India is Hindu because 83% of Indians practice that faith. In fact, all other religions combined only comprise 17% of the total population. The major religion in India is Hindu because 83% of Indians practice that faith. In fact, all other religions combined only comprise 17% of the total population. A R.I.C.E. ANSWER……..

14 Now, lets R.I.C.E. it! The major religion in India is Hindu because 83% of Indians practice that faith. In fact, all other religions combined only comprise 17% of the total population. The major religion in India is Hindu because 83% of Indians practice that faith. In fact, all other religions combined only comprise 17% of the total population. RICEERICEEE

15 Now lets answer a CRQ connected to literature… Example 3: What would be a good theme for The Most Dangerous Game? What would be a good theme for The Most Dangerous Game?

16 A good theme for The Most Dangerous Game is never judge a book by its cover because that is the lesson Rainsford learned in this story. Although he initially accepted Zaroff as kind and civilized, he quickly learned his evil ways. Luckily, Rainsford defeated Zaroff at his own game and managed to survive. RICERICE

17 Score Description______ 4 The students response demonstrates in-depth understanding of the relevant content and/or procedures. The student completes all important components of the task accurately and communicates ideas effectively. Where appropriate, the student offers insightful interpretations and/or extensions. Where appropriate, the student uses sophisticated reasoning and/or efficient procedures. 3 The student completes most important aspects of the task accurately and communicates clearly. The students response demonstrates an understanding of major concepts and/or processes, although less important ideas or details may be overlooked or misunderstood. The students logic and reasoning may contain minor flaws. 2 The student completes some parts of the task successfully. The students response demonstrates gaps in conceptual understanding. 1 The student completes only a small portion of the task and/or shows minimal understanding of the concepts and/or processes. 0 The students response is incorrect, irrelevant, too brief to evaluate, or blank.
