Finally, helpful worksheets for practice reading and understanding persuasive texts. These lessons came from a light bulb moment I had recently teaching my 5th grade students. They were having trouble seeing the command-call to action that set persuasive apart from informative writing. BOOM! Persuasive Please! was born. Please becomes a magical word, helping struggling readers easily find the call-to-action!
More and more standardized tests are asking students to read and understand persuasive texts and their viewpoint. These worksheets are designed specifically to help students understand what persuasive texts look like and give plenty of short practices. Fact and opinion is also practiced in these worksheets.
Included is one teaching page, 5 worksheets, several different options for assessment, and answer keys for everything. I have even included some passages which are not written effectively, so you can discuss what make a good persuasive argument.
