Our Introducing and Stating an Opinion lesson plan teaches students how to write introductions that accurately convey their opinions. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to write introductory paragraphs stating their opinions on two given topics and then answer questions about the process of writing them. Students are also asked to work independently to put provided sentences in order to create effective introductory opinion paragraphs.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to introduce a topic or text clearly, state an opinion, and create an organizational structure in which related ideas are grouped to support the writer’s purpose.
