Writing an opinion paper isn't writing about factual information, but writing about what your opinion on a topic is. The challenge is to appeal to other people's feelings and emotions, while leaving yours out. This type of paper can be more challenging than you think. Organizing your thoughts, writing a list of reasons that support your opinion, and which reasons can be proven with facts and which are simply how you feel. Learn how to frame your paragraphs, formatting, and transition words that help you make your opinion clear and persuasive! This book will allow students to ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
