This complete unit for teaching persuasive essays has everything you need from pre-writing techniques to group work, ethos, pathos and logos lesson and activities, to worksheets and reference material. Whether you are teaching a simple opinion persuasive essay or an essay that requires outside sources, you'll find what you need here. Classroom-tested and student approved!
I've also included a bonus section on MLA formatting and avoiding plagiarism that you will find useful if you require outside sources. All the material is original and new (not the same as my Research Paper writing unit--except the bonus MLA and plagiarism section, which is the same).
