Are your students sometimes discouraged by the amount of elements they need to include in their persuasive writing piece? Is it difficult for them to write a persuasive piece in a clear, well thought-out, interesting, & informative manner? Persuasive writing is not as easy as it seems. It's hard to write a piece that uses facts to support opinions! Especially, if you're only 9 years old! This planning sheet allows your students to thoroughly plan their writing piece by completing an easy to follow graphic organizer. Each step to the writing piece is mapped out. I've used this in my classroom and it has proven to be effective! It breaks down the writing process in 1 page and makes writing their draft and published piece a million times easier! It even uses transition words!
