The plan is very well thought out. I do like the Persausion map link. However, the link to the Persuasive Writing site is no longer good. Do you have an update?

This is going to help me understand the structure of a Persuasive Essay, which is required in 8th. The structure
helps my self contained students get a better grasp on this topice. I like your lesson plan.

A great resource enjoyed by pupils in the UK! I only wish that I could have the Peer conferencing handout and notes!
