Using a famous quotation within a persuasive essay is one mark of a more sophisticated writer as it proves to a reader /grader that the student has at his / her fingertips a broader knowledge base than might be expected. Some choose to use the quotation as a hook, support for a point, or as a springboard for developing an entire essay.
This folder contains two well-developed, multi-paragraphs whose topics will be of interest to students and whose structure, elaboration, and voice will be a handy reference for their own writing.
The writing assignment for the class involves finding quotations with which they identify and writing a persuasive essay based on the meaning inherent in the statement.
Each folder includes instructions on many options for their use.
