Students will drag to sort statements into "facts" or "opinions." They will think about whether or not the statement can be proven or if it's a statement with which people could disagree. Next, they will read passages and highlight to identify the facts or opinions. Students will also learn that when writers take a stance on an issue, they usually pick facts that support their argument. A person with an opposing view might present a different set of facts. This will lead to a practice in which students analyze facts to determine an author's point of view on a subject.
