This template was developed to help students who just didn't know where to start when faced with writing a persuasive essay. The prompts allow students to gradually develop each paragraph, follow step-by-step instructions and receive guidance at every stage by submitting one page at a time for teacher or peer feedback. Once the scaffold is complete, the student can remove the teacher-written prompts and be left with a free-standing essay of their very own!
Of course this template can be adapted to suit different types of essays and the vocabulary/themes etc adjusted to suit year level and text. If you have any feedback or questions about this product then please don't hesitate to contact me!
Please note that in the orginal document, one page corresponds to one paragraph of the essay. For some reason the thumbnails generated here change the spacing of the document!
