I am trying to show my students a lot of writing, but our text series has virtually NO solid writings. I also am trying to teach underlying SKILLS that go beyond Spanish. So I am creating small paragraphs and teaching WRITING SKILLS as well (the parts of a paragraph, etc.)
How I use this 1 page: I do this part orally:
1. Tell me the opening sentence - is it strong? is it about 1 topic? Is it sort of interesting?
2. What evidence do I have that backs up this sentence? Provide it.
3. What is the ending sentence - does it mirror the opening sentence?
Then I ask for students to find any words they don't understand.
I read it out loud. Then they read it out loud.
I go through the page on a simple recap of persuasive essays.
I may at the end ask for other topics that may use the persuasive technique. Hope you enjoy this 1 page of writing!
