But what do authors charge their persuasive texts? AAA batteries of course!
Authors want to:
*Accomplish a goal
*Argue their point
This handout is for notebooks with a visual to help your students remember, saving the time of copying it out so you can spend more time actually practicing reading and interpreting texts and applying the knowledge.
