I told readers my opinion and ideas on a text or a topic and helped them understand my reasons.
In the beginning, I not only set readers up to expect that this will be a piece of opinion writing, I also tried to hook them into caring about my opinion.
I connected my ideas/ reasons with my examples using words like for example and because. I connected one reason (or example) using words like also and another.
I worked on an ending. It might be a thought or comment related to my opinion.
I wrote several reasons or examples why people should agree with my opinion, and wrote at least several sentences about each reason.
I organized my information so that each part of my writing is mostly about one thing.
I didn’t just name my reasons to support my opinion, I wrote more about each one.
I didn’t just tell readers to believe me, I wrote in ways that got them thinking or feeling in certain ways.
I used what I know about spelling patterns to help me spell and edit before I wrote my final draft.
I got help from others to check my spelling and punctuation before I wrote my final draft.
I punctuated dialogue correctly, with commas and quotation marks.
While writing, I put punctuation at the end of every sentence.
I wrote in ways that helped readers read with expression, reading some parts quickly some parts slowly, some parts in one sort of voice and others in another.
