Reflection: Lesson Planning Persuasive Essay Three - Section 2: Persuasive Essay Three


I have to admit that I taught this lesson in a different way for my block classes; we had enough time between our notes on explanation and our essay writing to create an outline together. I much preferred this method as it bought student interest--the outline was their own creation.

Unfortunately, timing didn't work out as well for my "skinny" class. We used the whole hour of our previous lesson to take notes and create example paragraphs, and if we had created a class outline today, we wouldn't have had time to write. Choices, choices.

Using another class's outline was at least accessable, and this class still found the activity useful.
