Product Description
This activity is by far one of my students’ favorite activities of the year. It always gets my reluctant writers and boy writers involved with writing…even editing and revising their writing to make it better in order to win! Step-by-step instructions are provided for the teacher, as well as for students. This product contains everything you need to teach persuasive writing in a fun, interactive manner... just "Print & Teach".

Students are led step-by-step in writing a persuasive, five paragraph essay. Graphic organizers are provided to help students research, cite evidence, write a thesis statement, organize their writing for body paragraphs, craft an amazing introduction and conclusion.

Detailed instructions are also provided for the teacher explaining how to set up your class brackets, determine teams, and how to judge the essays each round.

Although I have geared this activity towards 6th/7th grade, it can easily be adapted for 4th and 5th, as well as, 8th and 9th.
