Core Standard

When we use persuasion in our writing, we are trying to convince someone to believe our thoughts or opinions. The best way to do this is to appeal to the reader through clear and logical truths. The difficulty is realizing how hard you need to push. Some writers can be overly aggressive and scare readers away from their points, others can be too subtle, and their readers will drift off of course. The better understanding that you have of your readers, the easier it is to frame the conversation in such a way that it resonates with them and they will have a great deal of affinity towards the ideas that you present. The worksheets below help students begin to live through their different arguments and begin to position these thoughts at their readers.
