The Persuasion Map - free graphic organizer

Posted in Labels: ,

The Persuasion Map is a great graphic organizer offered for free by Read Write Think. It allows students to map out their arguments for a persuasive or  argumentative   piece of writing. I really like the way this map is built for it takes into consideration the gradual development of ideas and will walk students through a step by step process of building a solid argumentative statement or thesis. The Persuasion Map starts with a thesis that describes one side of an arguable viewpoint and then moves on to state the main reasons that would convince someone of the validity of your thesis before it ends up with a conclusion that summarize the arguments mentioned in the essay.
