Product Description
This checklist will serve as a student accountability tool, a peer editing resource, or a quick and easy reference guide for writing a persuasive essay.

Read each column as you would read a newspaper, left column then right column.

Students will check off each section of the essay either as they go or after completion. They will then reflect on the effectiveness of each part.

Connection=Example (I do not let my students use the word "example" in order to avoid the phrase "for example" as they are learning to use better transitions.)

UHE=Universal Human Experience or Truism

Slapdown=Refutation (I find that my students often forget to refute the opposition's claim and go into a whole paragraph in favor of the opposition. When I started to refer to the refutation as the slap down, I saw a drastic change in understanding.
