Teaching Opinion Structure and Persuasive Language

Using teaching slides to help guide your instruction in the classroom is super helpful, and makes sure you teach particular topics in a logical, sequential way. This set of 20 teaching slides covers the following content:

  • an overview of the purpose and types of opinion texts
  • an explanation of opinion text structure, with annotated examples
  • an explanation of persuasive language features, with annotated examples
  • review slides with links to worksheets so students can practice and apply what they have learned.

Opinion Writing Activities

There are several activities linked throughout this set of teaching slides. Here are some other low-prep opinion writing activities you can do with your students to prepare them for writing their very own compelling text:

  • Hold a classroom pet debate. Divide the class into two groups – one in favor of class pets and the other against it. Each group can research and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of having a pet in the classroom.
  • Book vs. Movie debate. Choose a book that has been adapted into a movie. Have students read the book, watch the film, and then write a persuasive essay arguing whether the book or the movie is better and why.
  • Outdoor learning proposal. Ask students to write a persuasive letter advocating for more outdoor learning activities.
  • If I Were the President … ask students to imagine they are the President. What issues or changes would they make if they were in this position? Explaining their reasons and goals.
