September Writing Course
How to Write an Opinion Essay
Under the umbrella of "Persuasive Writing" sits the OPINION ESSAY. But, what is an OPINION ESSAY and how do we write one?
In this month's course, parents and students will:
- Understand the Opinion Style of Writing and Core Standard Expectations
- Learn and Apply Proper Persuasive Structure and Organization
- Research Possible Career Interests
- Conduct an Interview
- Create an Outline, Rough Draft, Revision and Final Written Opinion Essay
- Produce a Final, Polished Opinion Essay
- Evaluate Personal Growth
In each of my monthly courses, you will find three leveled options for your child.
These are not based solely on grade level. True, a LEVEL I is typically perfect for a 3rd grader. LEVEL II is great for upper elementary kiddos. And, a LEVEL III is built with middle school standards in mind.
However, if your 5th grader is a reluctant writer, why not start the month at LEVEL I? Build confidence by making it less overwhelming. In time, your child will naturally progress to the next level.
Or, perhaps this month turns out to be CRAZY BUSY! No worries. Do one level lower than you had planned and your child will still learn all about the style while getting SOME practice completed.
The point is that these levels allow flexibility for your family.
A LEVEL I is a single paragraph assignment.
A LEVEL II is a three paragraph assignment.
A LEVEL III is a five paragraph essay.
Plus! A single purchase of this course will meet the needs of all the children in your family who are in elementary and middle school.
