PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It seems impossible. How can a pig parade be a terrible idea?! However, Ian Michael Black is very persuasive in his book with the same title. I love using children's literature to springboard writing concepts with my third graders all the way up to my AP Lit students. After reading this story, I use this bundle to teach the concept of persuasive writing. Through a series of steps (baby steps!) students will analyze the story to find that while wildly funny, it is actually just a persuasive statement supported (excellently) by five pieces of strong evidence, causing even a pig-lover like myself to believe that a pig parade is, indeed, a terrible idea. The end result will be a five paragraph persuasive essay. I have used this with great success beginning at grade three all the way up through high school. I have used this unit with gifted students as well as with special education students. Your unit will contain:
*title page
*instruction page
*reading comprehension questions
*evaluation of the author's argument and presentation of evidence
*analysis of a counter argument
*arguments and refutations
*the building of a persuasive statement and the gathering of evidence
*choosing and narrowing down evidence
*the building of an introductory paragraph
*turning evidence into body paragraphs
*how to drive it home: the conclusion paragraph
*a form for the final product

Feel free to use the entire unit or simply what pertains to your needs. Feel free to message me with questions/concerns.
Thank you!!!
