I love this idea. Using a 'book' for their argument is great. This is great practice for the type of persuasive pieces 4th grade students may have to face on State Assessments. It's also fantastic that it incorporates letter writing skills. Finally, I will also use this as part of their independent reading. Can't wait to get started on Monday! Thanks!
