The Common Core State Standards require that students know three main types of writing: opinion/argumentative, informative/explanatory and narrative. What are these types of writing and how can you explain them to students?
Our classroom posters help you break it down by comparing the three types to the work of reporters, storytellers and debaters. Share them with your students today. Then check out our infographic for teachers that explores the similarities and differences between opinion/argumentative, informative/explanatory and narrative types of writing, as well as concrete ways teachers can introduce them in the classroom. You can print in color or black and white on 8×11 or 11×17. Or take to a copy shop to super size them.
