Opinion writing is essential for students in the upper elementary and middle grades. Writing about reading is a great place to start!
Included in this bundle are:
* 10 scaffolded powerpoint lessons with objectives, learning targets, and exit tickets
* 3 original exemplars
* 3 mini rubrics
* 1 revision and editing checklist.
I developed these lessons using:
Literary Essay: Opening Texts and Seeing More, Grade 5
By Katie Clements, Mike Ochs, Teachers College Reading & Writing Project, Colleagues from The Reading and Writing Project, Edited by Lucy Calkins, Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Columbia University.
The touchstone texts for these lessons are: "Spaghetti" by Cynthia Rylant, "The Marble Champ" by Gary Soto, and "Eleven" by Sandra Cisneros. You will need copies of Rylant's book "Every Living Thing", Soto's book "Baseball in April and Other Stories", and Cisneros' book "Woman Hollering Creek and Other Stories" to read aloud.
Purchased separately, these materials would cost $28.
