This is a scaffolded persuasive essay assignment and a Powerpoint lecture.
The essay asks the student to argue what an appropriate age should be for adolescents to be allowed to date.
The assignment has a writing prompt and a set of worksheets that will guide students through the essay. There are a number of sentence starters and transition that are built in.
The .zip file includes:
1. .pdf files in various forms of the assignment/handouts to accommodate how you might want to print.
2. Alterable .doc files.
3. Alterable .ppt (Powerpoint) presentation.
This assignment is great for below grade level readers who need additional scaffolding. This assignment is also a great follow up to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
