Product Description
This lesson will help you guide students in doing persuasive writing. I used these materials with high-intermediate-level adult ESL students, and I think the lesson could also work well for middle school ELA.

The two example articles included are on the topic of banning plastic straws, but students are encouraged to write about any topic that they are interested in.

The download includes:
- A PowerPoint presentation to introduce the topic of banning plastic straws
- Two examples of persuasive writing that give opposing viewpoints on the topic of banning plastic straws
- A handout that guides students in writing their own persuasive articles and evaluating a peer's writing
- A single-point rubric that you can use in giving feedback to your students on their writing
