A complete, thorough introduction and guide to writing a formal persuasive essay. Includes sample topics, sample paragraphs and examples, detailed descriptions, organizational structure examples and outlines, essay paragraph guidelines, and student worksheets.
The packet begins with choosing a topic and ideas, and then continues through each of the components in a persuasive essay including introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. Descriptions of these types of paragraphs are provided, then broken down to show the "skeleton" of the paragraph. Students then can follow the examples to create their own outlines of the paragraphs using the accompanied charts and graphic organizers.
You may distribute this packet to students in your classroom, but this may not be distributed to other classrooms/teachers without purchase.
