PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Develop and practice persuasive writing skills with this integrated writing and art project! Students design a holiday sweater and use persuasive writing skills to convince the judges why their design should win the grand prize. Lesson plans and grading rubrics are provided!

This resource includes:
♥ Lesson plans
♥ Small group warm-up activity to engage students and review persuasive writing skills
♥ Project assignment page (explaining project to students)
♥ Student planning and project pages
♥ Grading rubrics
♥ 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 planning page- one with a graphic organizer and one without. Completing the planning page will help students do the design work of creating their sweater and will allow you to assess understanding of persuasive writing before beginning the final project.

The final project choices are differentiated. The first option has room for the sweater design and writing all on one page. For the second option, students draw their sweater design on the full-size sheet of paper. The persuasive 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.

You can choose to grade the planning page and project page as one grade together, or only grade the finished writing project (final project page). Grading rubrics are included for both choices!

Please check the preview to see everything that is included!

Thank you!
