Reviewer Comments:

This resource offers engaging background information for a writing assignment – how to prepare for an earthquake. The student is asked to use the R.A.F.T. handout, which is a resource that can be found on curriki.org by the contributor. The student is provided with a self-assessment checklist to reflect on his or her own writing. The student is asked if his or her writing has a topic sentence, reasons, details, facts, powerful conclusion, and if the work has been revised, edited and is satisfactory to the writer.
