Reflection: Student Ownership Fact or Opinion? - Section 4: Independent Practice


What a breeze! The students have a strong grasp on the concept of fact and opinion as well as how to explain their reasoning.  It was a good to remind the students how to support facts with proof as well as how to identify opinions with the signal words.  The students were able to use both in their explanations.  This will come in handy once we are looking at author's perspective in more complex texts. 

Because this lesson was more of a refresher, I could have included an opportunity for the students to practice fact and opinion in an informational text.  This would have given them the exposure to text as well as author's purpose.
