What is a writing frame?
Writing frames are a great way to get your students to practice writing. Rather than using a generic prompt, writing frames engage students in a type of writing by providing structure. This helps students better plan their writing, spending less time organizing thoughts, and more time focusing on their writing.
Persuasive writing is a critical part of our students' writing curriculum. Learning to write concise, concrete, and effective pieces of persuasive writing can be difficult for many students. Writing frames help minimize this difficulty by providing clear structures and organizational frameworks for student writers.
This writing frame is a downloadable tool your students can use to structure their persuasive writing. By breaking down the essentials of a good piece of persuasive writing, your students learn how to write more structured and effective essays or paragraphs. This frame provides spaces for all of the core elements of persuasive writing including: topic, topic sentence, main examples, citations, conclusions, and space to start drafting their pargraphs.
