I have used writing assignments to see if students understand complex content.

I've used them to generate what if...ideas

I have worked with voice (scientific voice especially), trying to get them to consider their role in educating an audience (a teacher audience, or a professional audience) about their own research for example

I have used RAFTS for many years in my classroom. I teach English to identified students and find that this is a great way to create authentic, motivating assessments that culminate units we are studying or books we are finishing, etc. Students enjoy working with RAFTS and especially like the individual choices they can make within each area if the RAFT. I can measure their use of all parts of the writing process.

Writing in my chemistry class involves writing a summary of lab experiments with a focus on analyzing the data collected. I have difficulty in getting my students to use their experimental data in writing conclusions and understanding how it connects to what we are studying.
