PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Which book character would you like to invite to dinner? Which would make the best President? Kids love writing opinion and persuasive paragraphs about their favorite characters!

You’ll have everything to need to help your students write opinion and persuasive pieces with strong structure and style:
• Persuasive Techniques – This one-page handout discusses Aristotle’s time-honored strategies for persuasion: ethos, logos, and pathos. Students will learn to use credibility, logic, and emotional appeal to convince their audience.
• Organizers – Two simple planning sheets help students establish strong structure for opinion writing (Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!) and persuasive writing (________ for President). They’ll begin to see the similarities and differences between these two similar forms of writing.
• Examples for Modeling – For each piece, you will receive a sample organizer and a polished final product.
• Guidance for Modeling – Two teacher sheets provide explanations and examples to help students move to that polished final piece: first person for opinion, second person for persuasive; adding information; varying sentence structure; improving word choice; etc.
• Corresponding Stationery – Use these cute sheets for students’ final pieces for an eye-catching classroom display.

If your students are ready to write five-paragraph persuasive essays, try Persuasive Writing: You Should Try It!
