This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from March 2018, opens in Adobe Connect. Persuasive writing is a critical skill that can seem daunting to elementary and middle school students. Now more than ever readers and writers must be able to distinguish between fact and opinion and clearly identify supporting evidence. Understanding the terms fact, opinion, and evidence is key to digital literacy. Using those elements appropriately will help students to construct (and deconstruct) an argument. Join us in the workshop to look at three tech tools that support authentic persuasive writing. Participants will: 1. Understand how fact and opinions together form an argument; 2. Compare/Contrast three online tools for persuasive writing; and 3. Explore three online tools for persuasive writing. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): persuasive writing (57), writing (366)

In the Classroom

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity. As appropriate, specific classroom examples and ideas have been shared. View the session with a few of your teaching colleagues to find and share new ideas.

Use yellkey whenever long links to sites need sharing. Share in emails or other correspondence keeping in mind that the shortened URL is only available for the specified period. This shorter address is much easier for students to type into their own computers/BYODs, use it to create web addresses that are easy for students to use during class sessions.
