Persuasive Writing
  • Teach writing; don’t merely assign it
  • Teach peer revision/editing; putting students in groups is NOT teaching peer editing
  • Focus on purpose and audience
    • Provide opportunities for students to change voice and audience

mentor texts
Mentor Texts
  • help students envision possibilities for their own writing
  • provide a model
  • inspire and ignite
  • encourage students to take risks by trying something new

This is how real writers work – they look to other writers for ideas, craft, and structure.
