We all have opinions! Especially our students! Here are ready to print and go writing templates for students to practice opinion writing. I've included 2 types of pages per writing prompt. Each "In your opinion which is better" sheet comes both with :sentence starters for the introduction, body (First, Next, Last), and conclusion AND a sheet without those.
You may choose to use both sheets. Using the sheet with the sentence starters as a Rough Draft and the other for their Final Draft.
Another option is to provide the pages with the sentence starters on them to your struggling writers as a way to differentiate.
