Students will read 2 passages about 2 different kinds of dogs (included). Next, they will use the Venn Diagram graphic organizer (included) to compare/contrast the two dogs. After that, they will use the OREO graphic organizer (included) to prewrite their opinion for a 5 paragraph essay. On the bottom of the graphic organizer, students will find a list of transition words for each part of their essay. I have included a student-friendly step-by-step instruction sheet to guide students as they write their opinion. After writing the rough draft, students will use the editing checklist to edit the rough draft (included). Finally, students will use their own paper to write their final copy.
