University of Connecticut s Center for Behavioral Education and Research E-ii Notes, Clarifications, and Prerequisites W1.1 Opinion In previous grades students have learned how to tell a reader about a topic/name of book and state their opinion about a topic/book. This year students will build on this knowledge as well as learn how to introduce their topic, state their opinion as well as supply reasons for their opinion, and provide a sense of closure. At this point, these new ideas will need direct, explicit instruction with a focus at the introductory level. Some of these ideas may be difficult for first graders, so provide appropriate time and supports. W1.5 Process In previous grades students responded to questions and suggestions from peers and added details to strengthen writing as needed with the support of adults. In this grade, students will build on these process skills and learn how to focus on a topic while planning. W1.7 Research In kindergarten, students were introduced to shared research and writing projects. In first grade, these skills continue to be developed. W1.8 Information In kindergarten, students were supported by teachers in recalling information from experiences and gathering information from provided sources to answer questions. In first grade, these skills continue to be developed.

Through engaging in class discussion, students will understand the key features of opinion writing. Students will use key vocabulary (topic, opinion, reasons, closure) related to opinion writing in order to discuss the elements of a brochure product. Students will identify and chart the key elements of a brochure through whole class analysis of opinion texts. During and after reading opinion texts, teacher and students will identify the requirements for their brochure. Students will understand their audience by charting the purpose and audience of a brochure. Students will understand the specific writing strategies needed to write a brochure by observing the teacher creating a draft from a SUTW planning template and using yellow stars to note key ideas. Teachers will guide students in brainstorming in order to develop a list of problems and obstacles, for which they can develop clever solutions.
