Point, Evidence and Explain
*** You will need legal-sized paper (8 x 14) to print and copy this organizer.
This organizer is designed to help students master the elements of opinion writing. Students create a hook and an introduction for their opinion writing piece. Next students determine their point of view about a given topic. Students must cite specific text evidence for their opinion, and explain the connection between their evidence and their point of view. In addition, there is a box for students to create a concluding sentence.
