The presentation slides show how to teach students the OREO mnemonic as a method for writing an opinion piece using textual evidence. The slides include examples and sentence frames for writing an opinion with reasons and evidence from the text. The OREO writing strategy is aligned to Language Arts Florida Standards (LAFS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This activity is intended for grades 2-6, but could be used with students in middle and high school as well. After students are familiar with the OREO method this can also be a center activity for students to continue working on their opinion writing skills.
