This Flowers for Algernon: RAFT lesson plan also includes:

Should Charlie undergo an operation to increase his intelligence? A mini-lesson for a unit on Daniel Keyes novel Flowers for Algernon uses a RAFT activity, which prompts young scholars to write a letter to Charlie's doctors explaining why they should or should not have performed the operation. This lesson has a very simple structure: teacher model, partner share/brainstorm, individual writing time, and final whole class discussion.
