Reflection: Real World Applications Waldo says "Where's Writing?" - Section 3: Teacher's Turn

 

My 2nd graders would not recognize a campaign poster for what it was.  They did not realize that it was a form of persuasion.  We then had a quick discussion about what it means to have a campaign and what people might want to be elected for. I hadn't planned to discuss the word campaign, but persuasive writing is probably the most elusive for my students, so it was a good opportunity to take a few moments and discuss.
