I recently had a teacher who uses my opinion writing unit, ask me how to teach students the difference between “REASONS” and “SUPPORTING DETAILS”. This is usually something that I would go over with students when they organize their ideas. But when this teacher asked, it made me realize that this was an important lesson itself. I decided to create a “BONUS” lesson to address this skill.
Use the examples provided to further clarify the difference between reasons and supporting details. Here are the examples that I use in this lesson:

Evidence serves as support for the reasons offered and helps compel audiences to accept claims. Evidence comes in different sorts, and it tends to vary from one academic field or subject of argument to another. Scientific arguments about global warming require different kinds of evidence than mealtime arguments about Paul Newman’s movies. Evidence answers challenges to the reasons given, and it comes in four main types:
Claims are statements about what is true or good or about what should be done or believed. Claims are potentially arguable. “A liberal arts education prepares students best” is a claim, while “I didn’t like the book” is not. The rest of the world can’t really dispute whether I liked the book or not, but they can argue about the benefits of liberal arts. “I thought the movie was cool” is not an arguable statement, but “the movie was Paul Newman’s best” is, for people can disagree and offer support for their different opinions.

Chapter Four asks students to “identify two aspects of India’s foreign policy that you would like to retain and two you would like to change,” with supporting reasons .
You can also write three paragraphs for the body, and instead of minor points, write logical, supporting reasons for the topic.
