Persuasive OREO Writing: Great idea for middle school! The students could even be given Oreos as a treat. It's a way easier way to explain persuasive papers to a younger crowd. I also feel that it could maybe only be a prop because any paper writing require more attention and more description than that.
This lesson will introduce your beginning writers to writing persuasively. $
