Opinion Text Collection

Full-color Opinion Texts in Two Formats
Mondo offers 10 opinion texts in two formats at Levels K-X. In the four Student & Teacher Persuasive Texts (Levels K-R), written by students along with their teachers, a class debates the pros and cons of an engaging issue. In the six FlipSides books (Levels R-X), text in one side of the book presents an opinion in favor of a timely issue, while text in the other side presents an opinion against the issue. Books can be purchased as a collection (6 copies each of the 10 titles) with lesson plans or as individual six-packs.
