Product Description
Opinion Pieces provides 3rd-6th grade teachers the necessary writing pieces to deliver high-quality writing lessons and assessments that are aligned to the Common Core opinion writing standards. The comprehensive resource contains purposeful materials that teachers can use in a multitude of ways: to model the process of writing an opinion piece during whole or small group instruction, to analyze what thoughtful writers do well, to provide small group writing remediation, or to assess student understanding of the opinion writing process. Best of all, students are learning and internalizing the process of writing an opinion with text and prompts that inspire them to form opinions.
