Opinion Planning Template – Castle

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Grades: 3 - 6

A template for students to plan an argumentative text.

Use this writing planning template with your students to help them determine three separate arguments that align with their opinion of a specific topic. (Wow, that was a mouthful, but we got there!)

  • Students write the topic of their persuasive text and their opinion.
  • They add a supportive argument in each of the castle’s towers.
  • Within the body of each tower, they add evidence and examples that support the argument.

Once students have completed the planning template, they can use their notes to create their persuasive text. Each tower will correspond to a body paragraph, with the introduction and conclusion forming the start and end of the text.
