An activity to help students understand what the word “opinion” means when they are asked to write one in school:
From the post: There are so many opinions about opinions that it can be confusing for students to know just what they are to do when their teachers ask them to write or present multimodally an opinion that is appropriate for the students’ grade level. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) (2010) link opinion writing in elementary grades with the arguments they will construct in the secondary grades (6–12). Review the list of selected Common Core Standards (grades K–5) here, and you will notice that the word “opinion” comes up quite often.
