This is a mini unit on persuasive writing. It begins with a diagnostic worksheet about persuasive writing then goes on to give several examples of persuasive essays. The first essay is followed by a "teacher's notes" page where all the important features of a persuasive text are pointed out in bullet format. The next essay is followed up with key questions that require students to analyze the persuasive elements that they just read. The final essay is followed up with an opportunity for students to write a persuasive essay of their own that refutes the arguments of the last essay.
