STAAR tests are mere weeks away! This file allows you to review the process of writing the persuasive essay, even if you don't have time to write and grade a full essay. I'm planning to use it as a last-minute review after Spring Break. You could also use it as a prewriting activity if you wanted.
This two-page document contains a new, original persuasive prompt, five steps to writing a successful persuasive essay, a t-chart, a thesis form, and a graphic to help those students who are still struggling to understand how reasons and examples work together to form a paragraph.
