Now practice identifying fact, opinion and reasoned judgment in a text.

A fact is something that is known to be true, or something known to have happened. It can be proven.

An opinion is a personal view, belief or judgment. It is something an author thinks or believes.

A reasoned judgment is a combination of fact and opinion. It is an author’s opinion based on facts or evidence. The author makes an inference or draws a conclusion based on the facts.
