Teaching Persuasive Writing through Art-Education Closet

Teaching Persuasive Writing through Art-Education Closet | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

by Susan Riley


"Our main focal point for this lesson lands with the artwork of Norman Rockwell.  I started to piece this lesson together from a couple of different source inspirations.  The first was as I was working on our upcoming STEAM Ed app (more coming on this exciting project in the next few weeks) and putting in our aligned standards to the Common Core.  As soon as I saw this one, I knew I wanted to write a lesson seed for it to put up on EducationCloset.  The second was as I was reading this fascinating article: Norman Rockwell shares 8 marketing lessons from art and advertising.  It truly got me thinking about how art can be used to persuade people and more importantly, how it persuades people.  When you see an advertisement, you are truly reading a persuasive writing piece – the writing is just being represented through the visual art.  In essence, a print ad is an arts integration idea come to life.  Our minds feast on the visual representation of an idea, which persuades us to find out more information about that product or thought.  And today, we’re passing this lesson seed on to you.  And keep an eye on our lesson page – we’re preparing to launch an updated look to make finding and downloading the right lesson seed for you easier than ever."

Hello - I am the original creator of this resource and originally uploaded it to TES in the United Kingdom. We used it as part of a broader speech-writing task. Some classes also compared it to speeches by Winston Churchill, Queen Elizabeth I of England, a Barack Obama. I hope you find it useful.

A Step-by-Step Approach to Persuasive Writing

A Step-by-Step Approach to Persuasive Writing | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it
Do you use the PEEL technique for persuasive writing? This technique makes your argument easy to follow because it uses reason as well as emotion.


There’s more than one way to win an argument.
Ancient Greek philosopher and polymath Aristotle developed his own philosophy on the best way to beat an opponent using words. He called this rhetoric.
Rhetoric, Aristotle said, is “the ability, in each particular case, to see the available means of persuasion.”

Persuasive Writing is a Key Focus in Common Core Standards | Edutopia

Persuasive Writing is a Key Focus in Common Core Standards | Edutopia | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it
Regardless of the subject, persuasive writing is a key component of Common Core Standards.

 

In my department, English Language Arts, we are already spinning Literary Analysis into a literary persuasive composition in order to address the future of this more meaningful writing. Rather than teach two compartmentalized writing genres, doesn't it make more sense to blend the two and have the student convince the reader of the theme or the character change or the author's intent? It comes at analysis from a different, more authentic angle.

Blogging is the New Persuasive Essay

Blogging is the New Persuasive Essay | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it
thinkstock By Shelley Wright


As an English teacher, I’ve had numerous conversations with college professors who lament the writing skills of their first year students. But not all writing. Most students are capable of solid expository writing. It’s their skill with persuasive writing that’s the problem. Specifically, they’re weak at writing a thesis statement that can be argued.

WritingFix: Genres and Modes...Persuasive Writing Resources | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

Even though our students learn basic persuasive writing skills long before they come to school ("I'll be really quiet if you buy me that toy"), they don't come to us knowing how to write persuasively. Writing is different than speaking. To persuade through writing, students need to analyze how they successfully convince others through speaking, then combine those skills with solid writing instruction.


What we've learned is that there must be a strong foundation of other writing skills in place before asking students to write something persuasive. Without the foundation, the persuasive writing your students will do will be flat and uninteresting.
