Product Description
When I first started teaching persuasive writing, I got really bored of the typical persuasive writing topics. The kids hated them; I got bored grading essays. Enter the Alien Report. This is absolutely my all-time favorite writing unit that I teach with my students. It gets them out of their writing "shell," cleverly introduces the persuasive writing genre, and, most importantly, lets me find the joy of grading essays again.

This is a complete unit, divided into nine steps:

Brainstorming topic
Subtopic prewriting
Thesis writing
Complete outline
Rough Draft
Peer Editing
Self checklist
Final draft

This unit is perfect for grades 7-10, and it calls on prior knowledge of the five-paragraph essay and possibly MLA formatting.

Unit includes lesson plan with standards, objectives, differentiation ideas, and teaching tips.

This is a print and teach unit -- no need to to anything else!
