How to Write an Opinion Essay

You have learned the 5 part essay, now we will learn how to apply this to an opinion paper.

outline
Outline
  • State your opinion in the first paragraph.
  • Try to avoid using “I think” or “I believe” because you are writing the paper, it IS your opinion.
  • Use a graphic organizer to state your opinion (or thesis statement). You can see Ms. Ingalls for this.
  • Support your thoughts with examples and/or facts.
introduction
Introduction
  • You need to hook your reader in.
  • Your hook will be more like the beginning of a short story than an essay.
  • Show your reader you have something important to say.
  • Humour is common and welcomed in an opinion paper.
  • Link your opinion to current events, if possible.
revising
Revising
  • Underline your reasons in one color.
  • Underline your facts and examples in another color.
  • Do you have enough details to support each reason?
  • Try to put each reason in it’s own paragraph with supporting details/facts.

Note
  • If you are stating an opinion about a piece of literature (a novel, a work of non-fiction), then be sure to reference your facts and/or examples properly from the book.
  • Your title page will be required in the proper format.
