A visual display for your classroom to help students ‘bump up’ their opinion writing.

The aim of this visible learning classroom display is to help students ‘bump up’ their opinion writing. The display enables students to identify the approximate level of an opinion text they have written, then use the goals provided to ‘up-level’ their writing.

Print, cut out, and laminate each component of the display. This display includes:

  • a title banner
  • four example texts of varying levels (simple to complex)
  • statements describing the structural and language features included in each example text
  • goals for ‘bumping up’ each example text.

To create the display:

  • Print out (and laminate) all of the components.
  • Place the title banner at the top of the display.
  • Place the texts in order (1-4) horizontally.
  • List the ‘This piece of writing includes…’ statements vertically underneath the corresponding text.
  • List the ‘This piece of writing could be improved by…’ goals vertically underneath the corresponding text.
