Product Description
Students are provided with 10 different statements. For each, they must state whether they agree or disagree and provide a reason and a specific example to support their opinion. At the end, they choose one topic and write a persuasive paragraph stating their opinion and supporting it.

This is a good activity when preparing students to write persuasive essays. I find my students struggle to come up with specific examples to support their positions. This helps them practice that process.

I use this as a jigsaw activity. Students must discuss and reach a consensus with their group. Once all groups have completed the activity, I have them jigsaw to new groups and share their answers. This allows students to see several positions, reasons, and examples for each statement.
