This powerpoint lesson is designed to help high school students clearly understand the difference between informative and persuasive writing. The first few slides define both informative and persuasive, and give examples of each type of thesis statement. The last part of the powerpoint gives several examples of paragraphs that are either informative or persuasive. You can use these as examples or as assessments. There are notes on the bottom of each slide to assist the teacher. Thank you for your download and don't forget to rate and comment!
