Fact or Opinion - New iPod/iPad App to Help Students Practice Reading Comprehension Skills
Fact or Opinion helps student practice and master the important reading comprehension skill of determining if a passage is factually accurate or the writer's opinion.
By: Bruce Brown
Ways to Play
Practice Level The student is asked to decide if the answer is a fact or an opinion. An incorrect response allows the student to read the passage again and select the correct answer.
Single Player The student plays a Bingo-like game against the computer. He/she reads the passage. Given a passage or three answer choices, the student will decide if the answer states a fact or if it is the author's opinion. Correctly identifying the answer as a fact or an opinion allows the student to place a marker on the game card. Five markers in a row win the game.
Multi Player The student plays a Bingo-like game against another student. The first student to fill his/her game card with five markers in a row wins the game.
