Hello All! I am in search of information about ideas on teaching persuasive writing to my 4th graders. We are finishing weeks of work on essay writing using Lucy Calkins. However, I am not seeing anything specific in this genre by way of the Calkins books. I have no problem researching my own way (this is my first year with 4th grade), however, I am seeking some type of continuity if at all possible. I imagine I could always still use the "Lucy" model and tweak it for the genre. Any thoughts or ideas are sure welcome! Thanks a bunch!
