**Please note- This opinion writing product is different from some of my other opinion writing products in that it is focused on teaching students how to write an opinion essay using outside sources / articles to support their arguments. Please look at the preview to be sure it suits your needs.
This is higher level opinion writing intended for Grades 4-7, but can be modified for teaching to levels above or below. The opinion writing presentation, instruction, activities and rubric are based on Common Core Standards for Writing and Language.
