This Complete Persuasive Paragraph Unit Includes a Unit Guide, 5 Complete Student Organizers, a rubric, prompts, and pictures of actual anchor charts used in the classroom.
This paragraph unit was designed in 5 parts with each part building off the last. It was created to provide students with the support they need to be able to write effective persuasive paragraphs.
As students work through each part, they synthesize their ideas and essentially become experts on their positions, while practicing paragraph writing at the same time. This unit may be used on its own, or it could be part of a larger unit leading up to a debate or an actual communication to someone who might be able to make a difference about an issue that matters.
This is exactly what you've been looking for if you are teaching your students to write persuasively.
