In this unit students will learn that writing can give them a way to make and defend decisions and opinions. They will learn to write their judgments, their reasons for those judgments, and to organize their reasons, supplying supporting details. The students will write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or name the book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply a reason for the opinion, and provide some sense of closure. This unit will encourage writers to develop opinions with multiple reasons, provide detailed descriptions, as well as strong openings and closings. It will also encourage students towards using and revising more complex sentences, using linking words.
