Prewriting (Brainstorming) Drafting Revising/Editing Publishing/Sharing

42 Prewriting Decide which idea you support. Write it down on this sticky note. Share it aloud. Choose a partner that shares your opinion.

43 Prewriting Complete a brainstorming activity together coming up with as many reasons as possible to support your opinion. Each person in the pair will need to narrow this list down to the two, three, or four reasons that you can support the best with your own personal reasons, examples, etc. so that you will be able to develop your paper from these.

44 Drafting Write your paper as your ideas come to you.
If you have difficulty starting with the introduction, you may want to skip the introduction and come back to it.

45 Revising/Editing Use your checklist and rubrics to make sure that you have your paper worded the way you want it. Proofread for errors. Make sure you used a variety of words and sentences.

46 Publishing/Sharing Share your paper with a person that did not have the same opinion as you. Were you able to convince them to change their mind? If not, you may want to think about why your reasons why not effective.

47 Answering the essential question--
Write a persuasive paper that shows that you know how to persuade a reader to accept your opinion or view point.
