Student Writer Instructions:
Students, imagine that you are an animal with a reason to write...like those cows in the book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. You want something as badly as those cows wanted the electric blankets! And you're going to attempt to be as persuasive as they were in the book. Use the two buttons below to select 1) an animal and 2) an item you try to persuade someone to send you. Let your imagination run wild. If you can come up with an animal and an item on your own for this writing assignment, you should do it!
Draft a friendly letter from your animal to a human. Use good persuasive techniques as you craft your words carefully. Follow the format of a friendly letter.
Before writing a final draft of your letter, have a friend look it over and suggest some additional ideas for persuasive techniques.
