Welcome to this Lesson:

Persuasive and Emotional Monologues

convincing something scary to leave your narrator alone

This lesson was built for WritingFix after being proposed by NNWP Consultant Amy Richards at an SBC-sponsored inservice class.

The intended "mentor text" to be used when teaching this on-line lesson is the picture book My Brother Dan's Delicious by Steven L. Layne. Before writing, students should listen to and discuss the writing style of this book's author, focusing on the persuasive techniques used by the main character and narrator of the story.

Check out My Brother Dan's Delicious at
