Are your end-of-level writing assessments right around the corner? Help your students nail their opinion (argumentative in 6th) writing essays using fact-based paired texts. Students are given an engaging focus question, then read these perfectly paired texts 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. Start your ELA Test Prep in style. Your students will thank you!
