Persuasive Writing Planning

To plan our persuasive writing, I introduced a plan to help organise students' ideas.

It follows the format:
What opinion or belief do you have?
Why? (reason to support opinion)
What was that again? (restating your belief).

We used that answer sandwich to plan a persuasive piece of writing as a class. It begins with an introduction, followed by three strong reasons and details to explain those reasons and concludes with restating their belief or opinion.
