PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This pack is included in the following Writing Bundles:
PERSUASIVE WRITING BUNDLE: MENTOR TEXTS
PERSUASIVE, NARRATIVE, OPINION, INFORMATIONAL WRITING (GROWING) MEGA BUNDLE

**********************************************************************
Teach students the structural components of the persuasive writing genre with this interactive fun resource. This pack includes 20 Scavenger Hunt cards, 3 Recording Sheets, and Answer Key pages to equip students with necessary content information so that they are able to adhere to the structural format when writing their own persuasive essays.

The structural components featured in the 20 hunt cards are:
✓ The Introduction: hook, opinion, thesis statement
✓ The Body: topic sentence, supporting details, concluding sentence
✓ The Conclusion: summary statement, re-statement of reasons, call to action
✓ Transition words
✓ High-modality verbs
✓ Ethos, pathos, logos modes of persuasion

ACTIVITY 
Place the 20 fact cards on Persuasive Writing around the classroom. Students can work individually, in pairs, or in small groups to find the answers to all 20 questions on their recording sheets. They must read the fact card to find the answer for each corresponding fact question on their recording sheets.

EVIDENCE OF LEARNING
♦ After the hunt,  discuss the answers as a class. I have the pdf version of the hunt open on the interactive whiteboard, so students refer to the fact card for each question on their recording sheets.

♦ The interactive nature of the hunt makes it fun for students to learn the structural components of a persuasive essay. Once students adhere to structure when writing, the job is half done.

Once you have taught students the style and structure of a Persuasive Essay, the job is half done. All the best!

Wish you and your students a successful year!
