"Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one's own self."                     Franz Kafka
We use RATS to help with short answer questions.  
R-  Restate
A-  Answer the question
T-  Text evidence
S-  Sum it up 
Ask your child these questions about RATS:
How do you restate? What happens if you forget to restate? What is text evidence? How many pieces of text evidence should you use? What happens if you forget the S and only use RAT? 
Don't forget the 30 book requirement!!  
These expectations can be found in the reader's notebook section of your spiral.
