As an English teacher and literacy coach, I have used this package successfully with hundred and hundreds of students. Originally developed for the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, the package is wonderful for teaching the opinion essay at any high school level. Package includes an example assignment, a graphic organizer, an example completed graphic organizer, an example essay, an analysis of the example essay, and a marking rubric.
Check out the complete preview.
Package is in Word so you can modify.
