This is a packet I made a few years ago for a unit on persuasion. The packet is designed to be all-inclusive as it takes students through what is persuasion, opinion statements, reasons, and transition words. There are worksheets practicing each skill as a reader and a writer, and the packet culminates with a persuasive letter assignment and a group persuasive commercial assignment. The packet contains hand-outs, note sheets, worksheets, rubrics, and even a spot to write their persuasive letter. It really is all-encompassing.
The computer I made this packet on crashed, so I lost the original file. As a result, I can't make adjustments to the file. The only adjustment I would like to make is to the page numbers because I didn't include in this offering the persuasive readings that I use with my unit because they are not my own work. If you substitute your own persuasive pieces in, they will fit nicely on pages 9, 12, and 13.
