Persuasive Text: Author's Bias

A pair of very brief readings on the subject of conflict resolution for middle schoolers (peer mediation vs. adult intervention) are provided for a discussion of persuasive writing. This resource focuses on propaganda, logical arguments, and casual attempts as strategies. Clearly there is more to the art of persuasion, and you'll need to provide other resources for your learners to get a comprehensive understanding of author's bias. Newspaper editorials and letters to the editor would work with this lesson.
