This is an entire unit on opinion or persuasive writing! It starts off as an introduction by defining the differences between facts and opinions. There is an interactive sort for practice with this, and then it also prompts students to make a list of some of their own opinions. This helps them develop some ideas for their future opinion writing. Then the there are some lessons with mentor texts to follow that highlight the parts of writing a persuasive piece. Some of the mentor texts used are: “I Wanna Iguana” and “Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type.” There is an example persuasive letter included to use in modeling this type of writing, as well as revising, and editing. Students also learn about “transitional phrases” in this unit, and how to make their writing sound more convincing.
