1st assignment

Planning Assignment

In this unit, you will be writing several different types of opinions.  Your first assignment is to write a letter to the editor.  For this assignment, your letter will be only one paragraph long. Typically, a strong paragraph contains 6-8 sentences.  However, it may be longer.

You may choose to write on the topic we have provided here OR you may choose a topic of your own.  If you choose your own topic, please stop now and send an e-mail to your teacher requesting approval for the topic you have chosen.

Topic:  A popular heavy metal band is scheduled to play in your town.  When they have performed in other cities, people have complained that the concert is incredibly loud and that concert-goers have been loud and littered the city when they have left the show.  Your city council is considering banning the concert or adding a surcharge to the tickets in order to pay for the clean-up and damages similar to those caused in other cities.  What is your opinion?  Should the city council be able to ban this concert?  Should they be able to add a surcharge to the price of the concert tickets?  Should they just stay out of it?

Using any format you wish, please plan your letter to the editor.  A template has been provided for you here. You are not required to use the template; however, you might find it useful. Click here for the template .

Your plan should include your topic and your opinion. In the graphic organizer this would go in the center circle. For example: My school should not cut out the music program.

You should also include 3 or 4 reasons that support your opinion. In the graphic organizer these would go in the circles closest to the center circle: Some supporting statements for the opinion above might be:

  • Music is one of the few classes that most students enjoy
  • Singing or playing an instrument can be a career or a lifelong hobby
  • Music is as educational as math, science, or English
  • Our great music teachers, who we love, will have to leave

Finally, you should think of some details, examples or facts that could be used to develop your supporting ideas. In the graphic organizer, these would go in the outer most circle. The facts relating to each supporting idea would be closest to it. The example above might add a facts like this to the first supporting idea: over 80% of students surveyed in the school enjoy music more than any other class. For the second idea they might use this fact: most of the great musicians of our time like Bruce Springsteen, 50 Cent, and Avril Levign got started in music in their public school music classes. For the third supporting idea a detail might be: Music teaches math through the beat, decoding by reading the notes, and memorization skills for lyrics and notes. The last support idea will include details about the teachers: Mrs. Jeffery has taught at our school for over 12 years and she has been voted teacher of the year three times.

If we planned this paragraph using an outline, it would look like this:

I. My school should not cut out the music program.

  • Most students enjoy music class
  1. over 80% of students surveyed in the school enjoy music more than any other class.
  2. another detail
  • Singing or playing an instrument can be a career or a great hobby
  1. most of the great musicians of our time like Bruce Springsteen, 50 Cent, and Avril Levign got started in music in their public school music classes.
  2. another detail
  • Music teaches as much as math, science, or English
  1. Music teaches math through the beat, decoding by reading the notes, and memorization skills for lyrics and notes.
  2. another detail
  • Our great music teachers, who we love, will have to leave
  1. Mrs. Jeffery has taught at our school for over 12 years, and she has been voted teacher of the year three times.
  2. another detail

Submit your planning to your teacher via the Editor Planning Assignment link. Your planning does not have to be in complete sentences, but it must include an opinion, 3 or 4 supporting ideas, and 2 or 3 possible details for each supporting idea. The stronger your plan is, the stronger your editorial will be.

Assignment-Writing Topic Sentences

You have learned four strategies for writing good topic sentences. This assignment will get you started with your letter to the editor.

3rd assignment

Written Assignment: Writing Your Letter

Now the real fun begins! Let’s go back to your letter to the editor. Remember, it will only be one paragraph long. However, your paragraph will need to be well-developed. Use the model you were given in the presentation. It will help you develop strong points and provide good details for your ideas.

Here’s your topic just in case you have forgotten it:

A popular heavy metal band is scheduled to play in your town. When they have performed in other cities, people have complained that the concert is incredibly loud and that concert goers have been loud and littered the city when they have left the concert. Your city council is considering banning the concert or adding a surcharge to the tickets in order to pay for the clean-up and damages similar to those caused in other cities. What is your opinion? Should the city council be able to ban this concert? Should they be able to add a surcharge to the price of the concert tickets? Should they just stay out of it?

Your letter should be addressed to: Dear Editor, and it should be signed with your name.
Your final letter will be graded according to this rubric. Click here for the rubric.
