A whole book full of individual targeted lessons for teaching students about persuasive writing, writing it and reading it. Each lesson contains the big idea, what to say to preface the lesson, during the lesson and debriefing the lesson, as well as a list of resources you will need for the lesson (along with some graphic organizers and handout examples thought they might not be big enough or on their own page, making photocopying difficult).

What's better than a book by Barry Lane or a book by Gretchen Bernabei? A book by Barry Lane AND Gretchen Bernabei. This amazing book is packed with persuasive activities, some extensive but most brief and powerful. As you can expect from Barry Lane, this book is also a lot of fun for both teacher and students. Bring life back into your persuasive writing lessons and buy this book.

I borrowed this book from our superintendent of instruction and oh, how I hated to give it back! Lane's humor and creativity make for a remarkably fun read as well as offering numerous ideas, most of which I immediately wished to test with my students. Bravo Barry!

Found a few ideas, but most of the information was common sense and nothing earth shattering.
