“You should be able to voice your opinion and respect the voice of the other side. You should be willing to educate yourself and know what it is you’re dealing with” -Steve Nash
Graphically Engaging Opinion Articles with Beautiful Language is a writing unit designed for students to explore their passions and interests and express their opinions using structural and linguistic devices.
The goals for this unit was:
For students to use their critical thinking skills to construct meaningful opinion pieces
For students to be able to include a range of persuasive strategies to convince a reader
For students to be able to talk about the strategies they use to convince their readers
All students have chosen a meaningful topic that has relevance to the current world, and a topic they feel a strong connection towards.
During Term 3 Remote Learning, students were taught many skills to develop their persuasive writing skills, and have written a total of 3 opinion articles. The articles in this celebration are the ones students felt the most proud of.
Articles covered animals, environment, equality, food waste, health and others. Click through to read the opinion pieces by Year 6 https://sarahjang3.wixsite.com/opinionarticles
