After our blizzard break, we continued to work on persuasive writing. We examined a persuasive paragraph on homework. We examined the structure and colour-coded it accordingly. We decided that the structure was like that of a hamburger. The buns were the topic and concluding sentences. The reasons were the three patties. Then the condiments between each patty were the supporting details and elaboration.
This diagram is not of a burger, but it is also a good representation of a persuasive paragraph.
Here is the file of the paragraph we analyzed.
