Persuasive Writing: A Kinesthetic Approach

For? Against? Or somewhere in between? Faced with a proposition (Students should wear uniforms in school!) pupils position themselves along a continuum.

Those undecided visit both corners to listen to both sides of the issue. After each group presents their arguments, class members craft an essay that presents their position.
