It will take your writers from the most basic skills of opinion writing to challenging themselves while making comparisons between two topics and making personal connections to strengthen their opinions. The unit starts with the basics of opinion writing, moves onto making comparisons between animals, seasons, and subjects in school, and then to letter writing to persuade. It culminates with book reviews in which students express their opinions about the books they read as they write letters to friends, parents, and teachers.
