This differentiated writing project is a fun and meaningful way for students to develop and practice persuasive writing skills. In this project, students will design new and unique donuts and use opinion writing to explain why their donuts should be chosen for the featured “Flavor of the Month.”
This resource includes:
♥ Lesson plans
♥ Small group warm-up activity to engage students and review persuasive/opinion writing skills
♥ Project assignment page (explaining project to students)
♥ Student planning and project pages
♥ Grading rubric
♥ Example of completed project
You can finish this activity in one to three class periods, depending on the time you have available. I have included a suggested lesson plan sequence for two days. Each student begins with a choice of two planning pages. One includes a graphic organizer and the other has lines for writing. Completing the planning page will help students create their donut designs and will allow you to assess persuasive writing skills before beginning the final project.
The final project choices are differentiated. The first option has room for the donut and writing all on one page. For the second option, students draw their donut on the full-size sheet of paper. The writing can be written on the lined paper provided or typed on the computer. This allows for more room depending on the amount of information you want students to include.
