Information: Students clearly introduce the topic; organize related information into logical paragraphs or sections; write facts, definitions, and details about the topic; use quotations and concrete details to develop the topic; include topic-specific vocabulary; connect ideas with linking words and phrases; and write a conclusion
Opinion: Students write an introduction that clearly states an opinion; write ideas and supporting reasons in an organized structure; write supporting reasons with facts and details, connect an opinion and supporting reason with linking words; and write a conclusion.
