In this student interactive, used in several ReadWriteThink lessons, students map out their argument for a persuasive essay or debate. The activity leads students through the steps of identifying a goal or thesis, writing three main reasons for their position and stating three facts or examples for each reason. When students finish this activity, the persuasion map can be printed out.
