In the current climate of information readers are left to decide if what they are reading contains a hidden agenda of sorts. Facts are verifiable truths. Opinions are messages that are another person's thoughts or viewpoint. Readers are often left to their own to make this decision and come to their own conclusion. It is a bit more visible when they are hearing someone speak, by when left to dissect a written work there is a good slice left to their own minds to decide. These worksheets will ask students to answer this call and decide if a masked agenda lurks in the authors' words. Thinking at this level requires a special someone. We have to use this skill every time we read a news article in the modern times.
