Persuasive Writing

Question: How can students evaluate their persuasive writing?

> “Read the piece once carefully and determine the reader based on the writing.”

> “Go through the piece again and highlight where you show evidence of your awareness of the audience.”

> “Read the piece a third time and, using a different color, highlight evidence of purpose in your writing.” P. 22.
