PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is now part of an opinion-writing bundle, which can be accessed here: Opinion Writing Bundle

Using the imagery of a stool, this opinion-organizing worksheet asks students to brainstorm an opinion or argument (the seat of the stool) and then three pieces of evidence (the legs of the stool) that help to support their chosen opinion.

The stool imagery emphasizes that for an opinion or argument to be strong, it needs multiple pieces of evidence to support it. The image also reinforces that evidence used to support an argument must be directly related to the opinion at hand.

I have used this resource with my own students (second graders) to help them organize their thoughts during persuasive writing pieces and during oral opinion-sharing activities.

This resource could also be used for planning debate positions; reflecting on a different point of view; or for any activity where students need to create, reflect upon, or defend an opinion.
