Would you like to improve your students’ persuasive writing? Just move them through these four steps: structure, ideas, sentences, and words. In this professional development video, master teacher Brenda Kovich discusses how this works in her fourth grade classroom.
The beginning of the video explains steps for pulling lively paragraphs out of third and fourth grade kids:
1. Start with a strong structure (opinion-reason-reason-reason-opinion).
2. Add ideas to fill in the gaps and elaborate.
3. Improve voice by shaking up sentences.
4. Get specific with word choice.
The second part models the writing process as Brenda writes and edits a paragraph for you.
In this video, you get to peek inside the classroom (and head!) of a veteran teacher. It provides a springboard to your growth as a writer and teacher of writers. And hopefully, it will encourage you to model writing for your students – by composing and editing right before their eyes.
You will also receive four templates to use for any persuasive writing.
