Product Description
The essential question of our course is: How can language be used as a powerful tool throughout life?

Students will create a persuasive message to donors of an organization of their choice. There is a rubric for both the letter and the annotation/explanation that will accompany the letter.

This product assesses their ability to use connotation appropriately, format a professional letter, and persuade a specific audience. This would also work well for classes focusing on ethos, pathos, and logos.

Directions for students:

Your task is to compose a hypothetical persuasive message in the form of a letter or email that will be sent to potential donors (make up the name, address, etc.) for a real organization of your choice. You will use language as a powerful tool to persuade your readers. See rubric for specific requirements.

You will also analyze the power of your language on a given audience, label connotative words, and explain your choices.

As always, I can provide access to the original Google Doc if you wish to customize any formatting, rubric requirements, or other directions.
