Your students will choose between urban, suburban, and rural community areas in which they would prefer to live in. They will develop an opinion topic sentence, three supporting reasons, and a conclusion sentence. I hope your students enjoy doing this opinion piece as much as mine did!
Can be used as a summary activity at the end of your Communities unit, or as simply a week-long writing assignment going through the Writing Process. You could also make a class display of all the different opinions for your bulletin board or hall displays.
