Students are surrounded by opinions – in their everyday life and in the world, but learning to read and write opinions is a complex skill. Join the Ohio Writing Project in this 45 minute session to explore the way teachers in grades 4-6 have been using National Writing Project opinion writing resources to build student writing skills. Students learn to read non-fiction, write claims and support their opinions and arguments. Teachers will leave the session with writing project resources ready for classroom instruction.
