This is a powerpoint that includes the assignment goal: to discuss and write a paragraph persuading the audience of their opinion on the topic of year-round school. Each group is assigned a task to write about. They must convince their school board why or why not the school-year schedule should be changed. I printed the opinion slides out, put them in envelopes and gave each group one. They had to persuade regardless if they truly support that opinion. Each group then presented their paragraph and reasoning to the class.
