This guided handout is a great introduction to persuasive writing. If you have students who need a very specific, guided outline to help them with organization and idea development then this handout is for you. The handout is divided into pre-writing and drafting sections and provides tips for filling out each section of the outline. When students have completed the outline they should have the ideas and organization ready to begin composing. Since they have the "hard part" complete you could easily branch out to lessons about transitions.
