Reflection: Pacing What is an Opinion Piece and How Do I Write One? - Section 1: Cue Set


The jigsaw took a bit longer today.  Taking the time to really analyze other student's opinion pieces is valuable because scholars have not yet learned this skill. First, it is important for them to be able to identify what a strong opinion piece looks like.  Taking the time now, will pay off big when students need to write their own pieces.  

Also, be sure to remind scholars to ONLY read the student responses between the solid lines.  Scholars read the information above and below the solid lines today and became very confused.  Be sure to avoid this!
