This is a 13-slide PowerPoint that introduces the Open/Argumentative essay to students. The PowerPoint focuses on reviewing the overall structure of a persuasive essay. A graphic organizer is provided for student note-taking during the lecture.
This is a brief overview. If you would like to go more in-depth with introductory paragraphs, body paragraphs, etc., please look for my more in-depth PowerPoints over the next few weeks. :)
This lecture will take about 20 minutes.
