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 resource very useful. All components in this pack are designed to facilitate students to sit state tests or writing assessments.

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 pack are outlined below:


* All lessons to teach and model the parts of a Persuasive Essay revolve around the mentor text, ‘The Need to Have a Best Friend.’ Application of writing skills is targeted in the close writing prompt: 'It is Important to Have Friends'. The graphic organizers also enable students to write on other topics of choice.

LESSON 1: THE STRUCTURE
✓ Persuasive Writing Anchor Charts x 3
✓ Mentor Text x 1 on the topic ‘The Need to Have a Best Friend’
✓ Cut and glue parts of the mentor text activity to study structure
✓ Color-code parts of the mentor text to study the structural components of the introduction, body and conclusion.
✓ Questions x 23 to draw attention to structure (to use with mentor text and informative article)

LESSON 2: THE INTRODUCTION
♦ Scaffolded activities based on the mentor text to enable students to write the three parts that make-up the introduction: hook, opinion and thesis statement.

LESSON 3: THE BODY
♦ Cut and glue interactive activities and reference to mentor text to help students better understand the parts of the three body paragraphs: the topic sentence encompassing the reason, supporting details and concluding sentence.

LESSON 4: THE CONCLUSION
♦ Reference to color-coded mentor text and deconstructing parts of a concluding paragraph activity to better understand the parts: summary statement, re-statement of reasons and call to action.

ALSO INCLUDED:
✓ Graphic organizers to organize ideas of the introduction, body and conclusion when planning to write on a given prompt are included for all lessons.

✓ Writing templates for published pieces.

✓ Self-editing checklist

✓ Peer-editing checklist

✓ Teacher marking rubric

✓ Booklet cover for all lessons if compiling lesson sheets.

✓ Posters x 6 on Persuasive Writing Signal Words

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. Further instructions on how to use this resource are in file.

Wish you and your students a successful year!
