Product Description
This activity is intended to give students confidence. They’ve been taught how to write persuasive essays, and they’ve been practicing all year. Somehow, though, on game day they panic and choke. We want to give our students a fighting chance. Sometimes, that just means Dumbo’s white feather of confidence. We can front load “memories” for our students the days and weeks prior to standardized testing, so they’ll be able to rely on “muscle memory” to recall evidence to use. Typically, persuasive prompts address universal themes that students should know.

I’ve created a graphic organizer using the last six released persuasive STAAR EOC English II persuasive prompts. I’ve created additional graphic organizers using Gretchen Bernabei’s “Life Truths.”

From these prompts, groups of students or individuals will brainstorm lists of ideas to use as evidence. I’ve included the CHELPS acronym as a memory stimulus. Then, students will use the Reporters' Formula (5Ws+H) to add specific detail.
