Meet an Author Opinion Writing

Are you tired of the same old opinion writing prompts? Here is one my students love. They write to tell which author they'd like to meet and explain why. They also tell what learn about the author from research as well as write about what they still want to know.

Students are expected to provide reasons and evidence to support their opinions. You can also have them write an introduction paragraph persuading their audience to fundraise money to bring the author to their school.
