Writing workshop is the way to go for addressing the Common Core or ANY writing standards! This comprehensive unit addresses all of the opinion writing standards! This is available as a traditional PDF file. I have also included a link to Google Docs, so all student printables can be used in Google Classroom!
This is a 6-week unit that is broken down to day by day lessons. Each lesson contains directions for a mini lesson, independent work time, and share time. There is also an additional handout or guided practice activity for each of the lessons.
You'll also find rubrics, monthly layout, suggested mentor texts, grammar integration with mentor sentences, and more! You'll love this unit for teaching persuasive writing!
