Persuasive Writing

In our Persuasive Writing lesson plan, students learn how to write a better persuasive argument. Students practice identifying key components of persuasive writing and also write their own persuasive essay.

Our Persuasive Writing lesson plan introduces students to the concept of persuasive writing and to strategies for writing their own persuasive essay. Students are asked to first create a detailed outline for a persuasive essay asking the president to give them an extra thirty minutes of recess. Students are then asked to plan, outline, and write their own persuasive essay about a topic of their choosing.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify key components of persuasive writing and will have written their own persuasive essay.
