## Persuasive Writing

Engage your young writer in a conversation about a topic that they feel passionately about such as energy conservation, human rights, or homework policies. Conversations about potential writing topics often allow kids to "grow" their ideas in a fun and comfortable space.
Have students choose a topic that they feel passionately about. If they're stuck, show them a list of potential persuasive writing topics. Place students in pairs and have them ask each other to share their ideas and feelings about their chosen topic. Students will often come up with great evidence in conversation that they can integrate into their writing.
