St. Patrick's Day Persuasive Writing Idea
Common Core Writing Standards: 1,2,3,4,5
This is a four page document that has students create a theme for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day parade. The goal is to come up with a theme that will surpass last year's record attendance. Once students come up with a theme, they are asked to design a ticket stub for the parade. After that, students need to write a persuasive letter to the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee (SPDPC) and try to convince them that their theme is the one to choose. A grading rubric is included.
This has been an enjoyable writing activity for my students in the past.
