This week we did persuasive writing. We took a look at the parts of persuading someone through our writing. We also did a graphic organizer and did our own piece. I think the activity was quite interesting because we made a class poster on the parts and a graphic organizer to plan. I think that is a good way to learn about it.
This project reminds me of a time that I saw a poster on persuasive writing. It made me think about if it might be handy or if it might be a waste of time. What I will do with all of this persuasive writing information next is try to persuade my parents into getting me and my brother Evan a dog. I learned that you need more than one reason to back up your opinion. You have to have more reasons so that you can convince people to agree with you. I think this is useful because with persuading skills you can convince people to agree. For example if Maia G. wants to play base tag but I want to play cops and robbers I can say ” well if you play cops and robbers you can challenge yourself.” I think that you are fast at running”.” Base tag doesn’t really use your fastest running and cops and robbers is challenging”. Sometimes I want to have it my way and now that I know how to persuade someone. I can get it my way. Persuasive writing is fun and useful!
