It doesn't matter in what state you live. Writing a persuasive essay is a skill students will need to have. Use this lesson to help
your students organize their persuasive paper. After they use the tools provided as training wheels, they will soon be able to
take off without them! There are examples for teacher modeling, cloze passages for guided practice, and empty organizers for independent practice. There are also suggestions for partnered peer editing and revising. I have explained how I use color-coded pens to distinguish parts of the paper. I also included suggested essay topics for students. Show students that writing a persuasive essay can be easy and relevant!
