Writing: Supporting a Position

Use this writing skills worksheet to work on persuasive writing techniques. Middle schoolers read a short persuasive selection about Star Wars, and then they identify the evidence the author uses to support his or her position. Young writers then complete their own review, providing specific evidence to support the opinion established. A graphic organizer helps them to plan their writing.
