I use these persuasive writing prompts as we read the 2015 Newbery Winning book, The Crossover, by Kwame Alexander They are a great way to get kids writing five paragraph persuasive essays using some of the ideas in the book. I require that students complete some of the prompts. We use the different writing papers for the final copies. I use these as additional writing pieces during the unit. Students can also present their final copies in different ways, like posters, brochures, etc. We keep them in our reading folders (simply a two-pocket folder) as we read the book.
*These persuasive writing prompts are included in a larger unit I have created for the book.
