PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PERSUASIVE/OPINION WRITING BUNDLE: MENTOR TEXTS

**************************************************************************
If you would like to teach your students a step-by step approach to writing persuasively and also scaffold every stage of the writing process, then you will find this Persuasive/Opinion writing bundle very useful. All components in this pack are designed to facilitate students to sit state tests or writing assessments.

This is a growing bundle. It currently features 2 writing packs valued at $14. By purchasing this bundle you will have access to all future resources on Persuasive Writing as they are released individually at no additional cost. The price will rise as consecutive packs/resources are added. The bundle features a mix of print-n-go sheets, interactive notebook templates, anchor charts, posters, checklists and rubrics.

The materials adhere to a formal writing style complete with close detail to elements of structure and composition of persuasive texts whereby opinion is supported by relevant details. Further details of lessons included in this bundle are outlined below:


* All lessons to teach and model the parts of a Persuasive Essay revolve around mentor texts. Application of writing skills is targeted via scaffolded lessons on writing prompts: The graphic organizers also enable students to write on other topics of choice

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF LESSON DELIVERY
I start the unit by having a discussion on what Persuasive Writing is using the posters as a visual stimuli. Each lesson is then introduced one session at a time so as not to overload students with too much content information. There is also ample practice on the writing skill in focus in the organizers and lesson layout. I have students color code and deconstruct (cut and glue ) the sample text as each section of the persuasive structure is covered. Editing and revising take place when students are writing out their brainstormed ideas on the given organizers. Self and peer editing checklists are used after students have written out the essay as a cohesive whole on the given writing templates. Students will eventually write out a clean copy for teacher grading once editing, revising and conferencing has taken place.

**************************************************************************
Once you have taught students the style and structure of a Persuasive Essay, the job is half done. All the best! I hope you will have an idea of how I have used this resource with my students via the guided notes for each section. The packs will provide ample practice for your students to write persuasively. Further instructions on how to use this resource are in file.

Wish you and your students a successful year!
