PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing persuasive paragraphs is a vital skill for middle school students as they work their way up to writing full expository essays. This student-centered lesson challenges students to arrange pre-written sentence cards in the order that makes the most sense to them. Then the class discusses why they arranged the sentences as they did and why sentence order matters in a persuasive paragraph. Then students are given a simple handout that shows proper persuasive paragraph order, and they are given a second set of sentence cards to arrange. After discussing how their process changed the second time around, students are asked to write persuasive paragraphs in groups as a practice activity.
