Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation So You Think You Can Argue? Myth vs. Reality about Brown vs. Board (Day One) - Section 4: Independent Practice: Read to Me!


The copy of the editorial given in class shows how opinions are effectively placed in a written work. Because this form of writing contains both opinions and arguments, it is important that students spend time analyzing the way opinions and arguments merge to influence readers into an author's viewpoint on a topic. Depending on the level students write, they may or may not pick up on the great qualities of this opinion piece. However, model for students how sentences are structured in each paragraph and use this as a reference for students when writing thier own editorial.
