**Now updated to include Power Point Presentation**
This is a full unit for Persuasive Text concepts aligned to the Common Core: author's position, fact and opinion, supporting examples, and persuasive strategies. Included is a unit overview, five lesson plans, printables, and a project based on analyzing multiple texts.
The lesson plans utilize partner work, marking text, power point presentations with guided notes, graphic organizers, and matching activities. Students will encounter multiple persuasive texts--the unit is designed to be used along with passages from a textbook or other resource, but also includes original persuasive articles.
The unit project is differentiated by content (the students choose from three topics), and product (via a Tiered Activity based on academic levels). The students will synthesize information from many articles in order to write a persuasive essay showcasing their own position.
