Reflection: Lesson Planning Introduction to Opinion Writing - Section 2: Introduction and Teacher Modeling

 

Since this was an introductory lesson, I probably should've done a little introductory talk prior to the instruction!  Oops!  Lesson learned!  I didn't really explain the concept of an opinion to students before I went into talking about them.  I actually had to go back and inform a lot of my students about what an opinion actually is and why.  In the end, that made students more able to build their conceptual understanding, so I could then move on and teach the lesson with better understanding.
