FACT OR OPINION LESSON PLAN

 

Materials


Procedure:

Students should read the lesson, and complete the worksheet. As an option, teachers may use the lesson as part of a classroom lesson plan.


Excerpt from Lesson:

Can you tell the difference between a FACT and an OPINION? What if I told you that baseball was the best sport ever? Is that a FACT or is that just my OPINION? Before we move on, do you know what a FACT is? How about an OPINION? Not sure? Let's explain through example.

If your teacher asks you to write a report or an essay on Abraham Lincoln, what is she asking you to do? She is probably asking you to go to the library, look up Abraham Lincoln, take notes on his life and write some paragraphs, in your own words, about what it is you looked up. What your teacher probably isn't asking is if you think Abraham Lincoln was a cool guy or if you thought he was neat-o.

Certain essays and reports require just the FACTS, or what is true and actually real.  In these reports and essays, you will need to research, or look up, information on the topic assigned and take notes. These notes will help you write your essay or report. Other assignments may involve your opinion. For example, if your teacher asks you to write about your favorite music or food, she is asking for your thoughts on the subject. If pizza is your favorite food, this essay or report would allow you to say so whereas an assignment on the history of pizza may not need your personal thoughts on pepperoni. (continued...)
