    Sell me on....
    By Red

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I tell the kids that the most important that makes persuasive writing different from narrative writing is that you have to "sell" the topic to your reader. I think it is important to tell them what they are doing in simple terms.

    Here are some topics I have used:
    Write a persuasive response giving reasons you should be able to have recess all day.
    ...why you should get a new toy/video game
    ...why you should be the star of your own T.V. show
    ...why we should only go to school one day a week

    Hope this helps
