This course will provide you with all of the background knowledge, experiences, and resources necessary to conduct an informed opinion letter unit of study with young children.
By guiding you step-by-step through the process of creating your own genre-specific piece of writing, you will be empowered to teach through example. The framers of the Common Core State Standards rightly believe that opinion/ argument writing is a vital part of college readiness, and this course will prepare you to set the youngest students on the path towards post high-school success. Through short videos, quizzes, reflection journals, opinion polls, and a review of a vast array of resources you will build your own reservoir of knowledge to conduct this writing unit confidently and in accordance with national guidelines. As a professional developer, a teacher, and a mother of two sons, I am personally thrilled to share this course with you, as I believe strongly in the power of writing to connect all of us to who we are, what is important to us, and what we believe in.
