Save Marvin! This prompt asks students to persuade Farmer Joe not to eat turkey this Thanksgiving. The packet provides space for students to brainstorm ideas for how to best stop Farmer Joe from eating turkey. I find this portion to be an excellent time to work with writing buddies/small groups and then to have all students share out with the class. Students then can use the included organizer to plan their persuasive writing.
This is a fun way to review persuasive writing in the fall, while pushing students to think in unique and clever ways!
