    Persuasive Writing
    By Stacey

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I read "The Stranger" by Chris Van Allsburg to my fourth graders. In groups of two they decide just who/what the stranger might be. Using index cards the children write a sentence telling what they think the stranger might be (white index card). They give three reasons for their answer (yellow index cards) Each reason is written on a seperate index card. They then must find a detail from the story to support their reason. Then they write a concluding sentence (blue index card). Next, they take the idex cards and use them as a graphic organizer to write their persuasive essay.
