The Last Word: Using Critical Thinking and Analysis to Reach a Decision

Want to explore the process of writing a persuasive essay and tie it in with the upcoming elections? Class members use Venn diagrams and the hamburger model of persuasive writing to write a five-paragraph essay on elections and candidates. After they describe the candidate they believe should be elected, they participate in an election, and tally the results. Links and lesson components are included.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
