In addition, the steps are color coded (a measure to help the student focus on the step at hand) and has a box for adding a visual detail (a drawing). Last, a self-check reminder in the bottom of the sheet to help the writer develop editing skills by going back to review their writing.
Three and four steps opinion writing prompts are included:
