When answering an Open Ended Question, use RAGES to help you respond to the prompt.

R - Restate the Question

A - Answer the Question

G - Give Examples (at least 2) from the Text

E - Extend your Response with examples from your life, the world or a book your have read

S - Summarize your Paragraph


Here is an example:

 

http://www.lcmrschooldistrict.com/brettimages/NJASK-march11-1.pdf - Open Ended Response PowerPoint

 

 

 

In a play, we get to know the characters by watching what they do, by hearing what they say, and by observing how others respond to them.  This is true even in the early scenes from The Diary of Anne Frank.

 

              Does the character’s personality make it easy or difficult to get along with others?

 

Use information from the passage and examples from your life experiences to support your response.

 

 

 

 

R One of the characters in the play, The Diary of Anne Frank, is Anne Frank.  A She is talkative and strong-willed.  G For instance, she is very talkative to Mr. Dussel. The first day Mr. Dussel arrived, she was talking to him non-stop, while he would reply with short answers. Even though she was supposed to be telling him about the rules of the Annex, she was talking about everything else.  In fact, he kept interrupting her stories!  G In addition to being talkative, she is also strong-willed.  This is shown when she told Mr. Van Daan that she wanted to go to Paris to be a famous instead of being a housewife.  She said she would rather cut her throat than be a housewife. E This reminds me of my classmate.  Even though a teacher tells her to behave, she still speaks her mind to get a point across.  She wants to be famous, too.  S In conclusion, Anne’s actions and speech show us she is talkative and strong-willed.
