The Most Haunted Places in America, is a lesson designed for students to develop their response to questions, improve their ability to think, reason and problem solve, develop their vocabulary and then create an advertisement to promote the attraction of their choice! For the advertisement the students are required to answer 10 questions, points value is included for response to questions. The questions are provided to ensure that the necessary components of a persuasive advertisement / article are included. This is done in a Word Document so you can make changes as necessary.
This lesson was designed specifically for my students who are language delayed and are in the 8th grade, however, my friend who teaches 5th grade, used it with her students to teach a persuasive writing unit around Halloween.
