Description

Teach your students to know and address the audience and opposing views in their persuasive essays!

My students had trouble with persuasive writing for years because I made too many assumptions about their understanding of audience and addressing opposing views. Persuasive writing doesn't always come naturally for kids!

I finally got a clue and made these lessons to break it down and provide specific practice. When students understood what to do and how to do it, they actually wanted to write!
