Persuasive Writing

I'm just about finished my conferences with my students about their persuasive letters. I am so pleased with how this task has gone. The key for persuasive writing is to use the most compelling reasons you can come up with. We emphasize that we avoid statements that might plant seeds in the readers mind that will cause them to dismiss our suggestion.   

I have a seven-step formula to help students to be successful with this type of writing.  

Here is a video of the Powerpoint I created for my lesson and sadly, the volume is really, really low (perhaps that's a good thing, LOL!). 

We've moved on to story-writing and we're off to a great start!
