Design a RAFT assignment to be used with your students as a scaffolding to ensure quality in the Digital Storytelling piece that they will create. The purpose of RAFTS assignment is to give students a fresh way to think about approaching their writing. It occupies a nice middle ground between standard, dry essays and free-for-all creative writing. RAFTs combines the best of both. It also can be the way to bring together students' understanding of main ideas, organization, elaboration, and other words, the criteria by which compositions are most commonly judged.

A RAFTS Assignment is made up of:

  • R - a Role from which to do the writing
  • A - an Audience for whom the writing is intended
  • F - a Format in which to write
  • T - a Topic about what to write
  • S - a Strong verb
