'I Have An Opinion'

In this unit, students develop appropriate interaction skills when communicating their opinions to others. They explore a range of persuasive texts to develop an understanding of how language can be used to persuade.

Students learn to present opinions that differ from those of others and are provided with opportunities to appropriately share their opinions.

When undertaking this unit, it is important to take into account the individual communication strategies used by students. Students' responses may be communicated through:

  • gestures and/or facial expressions
  • use of visual aids or symbols, such as a communication board
  • assistive or augmentative technology
  • varying degrees of verbal or written expression.

The activities presented may need to be adapted to allow students to respond using their individual communication strategies.
