A few folks have left comments asking for resources for teaching persuasive letter writing. I promised to post the rubric I created once it was finished. It’s now complete and can be downloaded by clicking here. Once you to the landing page, just scroll down and click on the and downloading the PDF that says “Persuasive Letter Rubric for Students & Teachers.”
Please let me know what you think of this rubric if you use it with your students. I’m always happy to tweak it.
I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
