Proving a Point: Persuasive Writing

Proving a Point: Persuasive Writing


Leaders are defined by their ability to understand a situation and take a stand on it with confidence and clarity. Students take the role of leaders when they tackle a question of choice. Students navigate the five-step writing process, using it as a tool rather than a guide, and challenging themselves to revise and refine their arguments.
