This is a great resource for opinion writing in your classroom. Start your unit with a fact & opinion scoot, then continue by having your students provide evidence for their opinions. Finish off the unit by reading and analyzing persuasive articles about differing opinions. Your students will love opinion writing after using these resources. The articles range in length from 147-222 words and the lexile levels vary from 500-1000 LL. These articles show two differing opinions for the following five topics:
In addition to the articles, I have included note-taking pages so that the students may take notes and provide evidence to support their opinions.
(Opinion articles and Scoot may also be purchased separately)
