1. 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.
Students will write an opinion piece based on if they think Minecraft is cool, or whether it drools. Some students will have varying opinions, but they should be able to give a reason they have that opinion. Students should state their opinion, give a reason they think that way, and then close the writing in a proper manner.
