The text Winter is the Warmest Season by Lauren Stringer is shared with the students by text or video. The teacher and students will track the author's writing technique on the graphic organizer as an example of opinion writing.

Students will then write an opinion essay using a season of their choice. They will follow a similar format as the exemplar text.

As possible extensions to the writing activity, students can upload pictures relating to their season or turn their graphic organizer into a menu using Adobe Creative Cloud or a similar app. Students could also use Adobe Creative Cloud to create a brochure about their favorite season. Students could upload photos to enhance and enrich their writing. Be sure to follow all copyright rules when choosing pictures.
