These Opinion Writing Resources target one of the most difficult skills for struggling writers – the development and expansion of IDEAS with supporting details and examples.
Opinion Writing Resources offer comprehensive support for idea development across 4 sets that provide ample practice for a gradual transition in the complexity of opinion writing.
Set 1: Decisions
and Set 2: Favorites
were designed to bridge opinion writing with something familiar, such as descriptive and narrative writing.
Set 3: Preferences
provides writing prompts that require choices in an engaging ‘Would you rather…?’ format. This set introduces the use of counterarguments and creates opportunities for further expansion of ideas in order to approach the complexity required for Set 4: Persuasive
Each set includes custom printables
with unique features
for structuring the generation of ideas, details and examples to support opinion writing. Clean, consistent formatting and fun graphics accompany engaging topics that are relevant for a wide variety of students with diverse backgrounds and abilities. These Opinion Writing Resources enable you to differentiate learning
or scaffold instruction
from the development of one basic paragraph through a fully-formed 5-paragraph essay. No one should be bored, and no one should feel defeated. Everyone is a writer!
