Product Description
I stumbled upon this article by Paul McKibben a few weeks ago and I was thoroughly impressed to find it inside the walls of a school. The topic of nature and how we as humans treat nature is one that often goes untouched. However, the book I found it in possessed an impressive layer of dust! It's time to pull these topics from the closet and present it to our students. So, present it we will.

In this article, McKibben discusses the overabundance of photographs portraying nature in an unrealistic manner. In doing so, he touches on almost every rhetorical and persuasive device in the arsenal of persuasion. With six questions to highlight the argument alongside the persuasion and an opinion based constructed response, this resource is perfect for the 9th grade classroom!

Also included is a link to am accompanying vocabulary.com list, a skeletal note sheet for persuasive devices and a few links to reinforce the ideas.
