Description

Now Google Slides compatible and perfect for your blended or hybrid learning model!

Help your students write stronger opinion essays (argumentative in 6th) using these printable or digital fact-based paired passages, or paired texts, about cell phones. Students are given an engaging focus question, then read these perfectly paired passages to formulate strong opinions. Students search the texts for reasons, evidence, examples, facts, and details that support their opinion, then organize their thoughts on the graphic organizer. The organizer supports students as they write their final opinion pieces, complete with all components necessary to meet your grade level opinion writing standards. This can be done by either printing pages or assigning through Google Slides. Teach opinion writing the fun way. Your students will thank you!
