I have created a unit aligned with 6th grade ELA Common Core. This packet includes a persuasive advertisement activity to introduce students to persuasion and rhetorical devices. It also includes a "Parts of a Powerful Argument" note-taking sheet, argumentative essay rubric and peer-editing rubric, an argumentative essay outline for students to easily follow and structure their essays, and a peer checklist for presentations. All documents are editable! Enjoy!
