I never used to love teaching opinion writing--but it's my new favorite! This introductory lesson can help you show students what opinion writing is--but more importantly, to build excitement for writing about opinions!
This opinion writing lesson is ready to immediately implement in your classroom. Consider using yourself or having as sub plans—everything you need is included for easy copying or can be commonly found in your classroom (ex. chart paper, lined paper, office supplies, etc.)
I have included the actual blog posts and/or full directions with photos to show you the lessons in action, suggestions for anchor charts or classroom displays, and any forms or sheets you would need to do it yourself! This is meant to be a three day lesson to help you introduce opinion writing to intermediate students.
What will you get in this resource?
- A set of step-by step directions for 3 days of an opinion writing unit
- Photos with work samples
- Bulletin board/Anchor posters
- Student materials (topic cards, graphic organizers)
- Teaching suggestions and tips
This resource is perfect to use in your first few days of a unit on opinion writing or even as a review for students who have done opinion writing in the past but need to get back in the swing of things! Students need to see that they have a wealth of ideas in their mind—and this resource helps them keep track of them so they ALWAYS have something to write about!
There is more than enough to fill three full days of an opinion unit for you or a substitute! Use it and then let the unit unfold however you choose!
