Read-Write-Think has another winner with an interactive "Persuasion Map" that helps students use persuasive language to make an argument by walking them through the process with their own words. Clicking on the interactive tool, students enter their name and topic. They can then work back and forth with main points and reasons to support them. At any time they can preview, print, or exit their map. The page also has a lengthy list of lessons that are facilitated by the persuasion map; however, it can be used with any persuasive topic. Note: the tool does NOT save their work! Be sure to have them print before ending their session, even if they are not done. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the ClassroomThis tool is very useful in getting reluctant writers to consider using persuasive language. Demonstrate/model first as a cooperative exercise on your interactive whiteboard or projector. It is easy to see the arguments when laid out in the map, and students will enjoy using the computer to construct their arguments. It is handy that the map can be printed and is then available for the student while writing the actual essay.
