This Introduce: Fact and Opinion lesson plan also includes:
Build reading comprehension and critical-thinking skills as learners focus on discerning fact from opinion. First, introduce the two terms as you test prior knowledge and explain their meanings (there is a scripted explanation here for your reference). Help them build personal connections with this concept by asking referential questions like the ones included here. To practice, read a book with both facts and opinions, pausing to write them down throughout. Encourage kids to raise their hands when they hear a fact or opinion, creating a list on chart paper. Check out the differentiation ideas for struggling, ELL, and advanced pupils.
