Writing: Persuasive Reviews
We started off the new year with our writing unit Persuasive Reviews, where students were taught to compare items in their collection and then decided which one was the BEST and give reasons to support their choice. Currently, our writers are in the process of writing reviews of things they have experience in such as places, toys, books, movies ,etc. This unit is aimed at teaching students to state their opinions and provide reasons and examples to make their opinions more persuasive!
