Product Description
*Thanksgiving writing* This is a persuasive writing unit with a Thanksgiving twist!* The culminating activity in this writing unit is a fun, NOT YOUR TYPICAL Thanksgiving-related writing assignment that can engage the whole school! My students always enjoy it tremendously. They actually become really fond of writing persuasively thanks to this activity!

The unit consists of:
1. very detailed lesson plans that show you how to guide students through the writing process (prewriting, composing, revising, editing, publishing)
2. writing templates with prompts
3. teacher's example of a persuasive essay (written by me)
4. example of student work (persuasive letter to the governor of Utah written by my previous students)
5. worksheets with carefully designed, meaningful activities (NO FLUFF)
6. grading rubric

*****************************************************************************
I am the queen of integrating several writing skills in one writing unit. After all, if you were to teach all the Common Core writing standards in isolation, you would need two school years instead of one! Therefore, not only does this unit instruct on how to write a persuasive letter, but it also teaches students how to:
1. use TRANSITION WORDS (CCSS W.4.2.c)
2. replace dull, overused words with VIVID SYNONYMS (CCSS L.4.4.c)
3. use FORMAL and INFORMAL language depending on the context (CCSS L.4.3.c)
4. write a business letter
5. revise and edit (CCSS W.4.5)
