This Smartboard note book contains 26 slides teaching how to write a persuasive essay/friendly letter. This file also includes 8 printable raphic organizers. The lesson is based on the book I Wanna Iguanna. Then the leson shows students how to brainstorm a topic and to create a R.A.F.T.S. R=Role, A=Audience, F=Format and T=Topic and S=Strong Verbs. Students choose who they would like to write a letter to, persuading their audience to do something (the topic) they are asking for. Great writing assignment...just finished with my class and students had a blast!
