Product Description
This is a fun writing assignment for any Language Arts class after the students have been introduced to some of the elements of persuasion and have been doing some basic analysis. The students write their own Craigslist ad for an ugly piece of furniture using whatever persuasive techniques they choose.

This is a great way to break up the monotony of writing and analyzing essays and speeches. Gives the students an enjoyable outlet for their creativity, but also gives them a chance to showcase what they've learned. This will also generate great examples of student work to put up around your classroom.

Works well after you've covered the basics of rhetoric and persuasion, especially if you've also talked about persuasion in visual media, such as advertisements. I use this in AP English Language classes.

Also works great as a substitute teacher assignment.

Includes a sample advertisement to give the students an idea of what you're looking for.
