This Anchor Chart is an essential for teaching RI- Identifying reasons an author gives to support their point or claim. As this standard is related to the writing of opinion pieces, I used the OREO theme. Included are the anchor chart, a fill-in-the-blanks student copy where students can write in key words and an anchor chart for sentence frames for student use when speaking and writing about RI8. (Find my writer's OREO Anchor Chart in my TpT store.) Thank you for shopping and, as always, BLESSINGS!
