Persuasive Writing- Writing a Draft from our Planner

posted Jan 14, 2015, 5:19 PM by Patrick Johnson
Today we continued to work on writing a persuasive text. 

Below is the planner we filled out together as a class (read about the planner here in a previous lesson).

I modelled writing the introduction which included images and a question to hook the reader's attention. It also stated our opinion. Next we turned our first reason (why we believe our opinion is right) into a paragraph. We wrote the topic sentence and added details and examples to explain our reason.

Then students, with a partner, wrote either the 2nd or 3rd paragraph (2nd or 3rd reason) of our persuasive writing piece.

Students presented their work to the class (where classmates gave feedback) and recorded their work on Soundcloud using an iPad.
