For teaching factual claims, opinions, and commonplace assertions (FOC), I use the talk read talk write lesson format. The lesson is versatile to fit any lesson format and to add or delete activities.
This lesson is unique in that it does not cover any of the FOC materials in any of my other lessons and activities.
Included in this lesson are:
*Fact or Opinion Talk #1 PowerPoint
*FOC Interactive Game
*FOC independent practice
*exit ticket--Aha! and Huh?
