Going to try persuasive writing
I have NOT focused on writing in my 6th grade classroom this year! GASP! 🙂 Our reading program took up soooo much time-along with english! Well, I am trying to change that! Of course, I am changing LOTS of stuff right now.
I am going to teach them how to write a persuasive essay, and I found a link to readwritethink for a complete lesson on persuasive writing. Tomorrow (Monday) will be day 1 of the lesson-it will probably take me the whole 2 weeks to get it done. I’ll try to post each day to sort of give an update on what we did. Here is the link to the lesson plan:
