The first sheet is designed to help students with planning and analyzing their own persuasive writing and/or speaking.
The second sheet is designed to help students remember, comprehend, apply, analyze, and evaluate an author’s or speaker’s claims. Multiple sheets may be needed in this case if a student is doing research on a specific topic.
A teacher/associate can complete one of these sheets and cut apart the boxes. Students may then be asked to put the boxes back together correctly. Photograph the end result for recordkeeping purposes.
Enlarge these sheets at a local printing company or through your local education agency. Use this a whole group teaching tool and anchor chart.
Students can interact with these charts if they are enlarged on a SmartBoard, Elmo, or other classroom projection system.
These charts work well with multiple ages and subjects. These would even work well in a college level writing/speaking class.
Differentiate the use of these charts by having students work in groups,
completing only one column at a time, using different colors for different columns, supplying the use of a scribe or recording device, and allowing students to choose the topic/author/speaker of his/her choice.
The second chart also works excellently with TED Talks. Use it as a way to track student viewing of TED Talks or other online videos.
Professionally, these charts could be used in writing your own research or using other’s research to decide on best practices for you and your students.
