Persuasion

Posted on February 19, 2012 at 12:22 PM
Hello, writers,
 
The following resources will help you transition from writing an expository essay to writing a persuasive essay. Keep in mind that the purpose of the persuasive essay is to convince someone to think like you do.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Go to the "Resources" page for sites containing graphic organizers, student samples, rubrics, and prompts.
 
This is one of the great sites on the "Resources" page: www.readwritethink.org
Search for Persuasion Map and Persuasion Rubric.
 
What's your opinion on bullying? Write a five-paragraph essay that persuades your school (or your church or any other organization you belong to) to take a stronger, more proactive stand against bullying.
 
Talk to you soon,
 
Write Cook
 
P.S.
Include a lean source of protein in your breakfast, especially on days you have assessments.
 
What I usually have for breakfast:
 
-one egg (hard-boiled or scrambled) or several slices of turkey
-one slice of whole-wheat toast (optional)
-oatmeal with non-dairy, low-fat milk and brown sugar
-coffee with non-dairy, low-fat creamer, no sugar
-a small serving of fruit or fruit juice
-my daily vitamins

Excellent resource, Write Cook. I'll be using this on Wednesday. The compare/contrast of the expository essay and persuasive essay hit all the points to review with students. I like the persuasive essay checklist too. Students will be receiving their essays back; they can check what the left out very quickly. Thanks for continuing to help our students. I like the breakfast meal! Keep writing.
