PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Super Resource! Loved it!"

Instead of doing several Opinion Pieces, I like to focus on just one and help the students make it better and better through multiple drafts that add new skills each time. This method makes writing opinion pieces that support a point-of-view with reasons easier to manage for you and your students.

These "Ready To Print" student pages meet FIVE of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) for Grade 2 Writing & Language and support students through the entire Writing Process!

Students focus on just three “Must-Have’s” for each draft—not tackling everything all at once. This allows them to be successful a little bit at a time while constructing an Essay that is top-notch by the end of Draft Three.

My Opinion Writing Packet is all you will need! It is “Ready-To-Print” and has directions for each step. Each new draft has Preparation Pages that prepare the students to focus on the new Must-Have’s.

I have designed this Writing Packet for you to use with a text that has a character about which students may have differing opinions. Lesson Suggestions for two texts that I have used are included:

1. The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka
2. Abdul Gasazi’s Garden by Chris Van Allsburg

Many stories have characters with debatable qualities. Feel free to substitute any text that you may already be using in your Reading/Language Arts block if you feel it naturally lends itself to Opinion Writing!

After Draft Three, students can publish in any way that you choose using technology.

I have included a Student Self-Evaluation and a Teacher Rubric for assessment.

Thank your for your interest and I hope you enjoy this product from Project Hallway!
