Product Description
Through my teaching of the upper elementary writing standards, I have found that it is difficult to find informational text articles to use with opinion writing. The articles I have found were either too hard for my students to comprehend or didn’t provide enough evidence for students to generate an opinion on the topic. That is why I have created this resource! It has everything you will need to teach opinion writing with your students. I have included sizes to fit student notebooks, as well as full size papers for those who do not use notebooks. This set is complete with 6 informational biography texts topics, objective posters, graphic organizers, writing prompts to go with each text (also comparison with opinion), sentence frames & transition list, editing checklists, and rubric. I have also included example pictures of my student notebooks to help guide your instruction. These writing activities can be used for classwork, independent writing practice, homework, and/or assessments.

Six informational biography texts topics included:
-Milton Hershey
-James Kraft
-John Muir
-Ansel Adams
-Mae C. Jemison
-Ellen Ochoa
