These "Would you rather..." prompts are intended to get students thinking about how we use our opinion or feelings about something to make choices. These prompts ask students to make a choice between to things and then go one step further and explain their reasoning for the choices they make. The prompts are first practiced verbally. Then students can use them for their writing.
The set includes complete instruction for using this activity. It also includes 24 "Would you rather..." task cards; a poster to help explain what an opinion is; a poster to help model the steps for partner/small group sharing time; a "I would rather..." writing journal cover, an outline writing page, and a quick write page.
