PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of the nonfiction reading skills that I want my students to become comfortable with is being able to identify the different kinds of evidence that authors are using to persuade readers to think a certain way about a controversial topic.

In this handout, I introduce my students to three specific types of evidence often found in pieces designed to persuade: Stories, Statistics and Star Statements. Paired with any heavily slanted current event, it gives my kids chances to practice spotting the strategies that authors are using to try to influence their readers.

The preview version of this file is a PDF. The for purchase version is a Word Doc that you can edit.
