Opinion Writing in Primary Grades: What qualities Do We Want in Our New President?

Jean Wolph, the director of the Louisville Writing Project, offers an opinion writing mini-unit on qualities of the next president. It culminates in students making a poster or writing a letter to a voter they know, asking them to consider specific presidential qualities when making a choice. Wolph notes that the mini-unit is developed for K-1; appropriate for 2-3 with more independence in reading texts or with replacement by texts that are grade-level appropriate. It is also adaptable for MS/HS.
