This document contains three Idea-Support Maps for persuasion. Each map has a spot for the author's goal (what he/she is trying to persuade the reader) and four spots for supporting reasons. The first Idea-Support Map is completely blank and can be used by higher-level students, with other stories, or for writing pieces. The other two Idea-Support Maps are to be used with the story "Everglades Forever." The second Idea-Support Map states the author's goal of "It is important to protect the Everglades" with blank spaces for the reasons and is to be used by on-level students. The third Idea-Support Map is to be used by below-level or learning support students. It states the author's goal and has fill-in-the-blanks for the reasons along with the page numbers where students can find the supporting reasons.
