Preparing to become ACE Writers

May 4, 2016

Eighth grade student are learning to use ACE steps when supporting their writing.  Ace helps us Answer the question, Cite evidence from the text using the author’s words, Explain in our own words how the evidence supports the answer, and summarize our response in a summary sentence.  The beauty of the ACE strategy is that it can be used in any class, or when research writing. Eighth grade students recently used the method in several classes.  In Language Arts, students read a book, took notes, then answered constructed questions concerning a character of their choice.  Students feel this method helps them organize their writing as well as easily provide support for their thoughts.
