Reflection: Flexibility The Titanic: Forming an Opinion - Section 3: Forming an Opinion


This is students’ second attempt at writing an opinion piece with two reasons and two pieces of evidence for support and the first time doing it independently. While it is my hope that they will be successful in completing this prompt alone, I know that there will be several students who will struggle to do so. If I notice that several students are struggling to complete the task, I will pull them together to complete as a small group.
