So I was called for to demo in a 5th grade ICT class tomorrow. They want me to do a writing lesson in 20 mins. So here are my thoughts. I'm going to do a persuasive writing lesson. I'm going to introduce the concept of what persuasion is and how to persuade someone to agree with your thinking. I'm going to list my topic and then come up with 3 reasons to persuade my readers why they should agree with me. I'll then give the students a topic, have them turn and talk, and give me 3 reasons. Then for a very short independent practice they will choose a topic and state their 3 reasons. I'll have 1 or 2 students share and then conclude the lesson. How does that sound? Any suggestions?
