Power of Persuasion Teacher's Manual (Grades 1-2)
In this unit, students will read two texts: The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Dear Mrs. LaRue by Mark Teague. In both texts, characters use letters to persuade. Through the study of these two literary texts, students build their knowledge about the characters in each story, how the characters work to persuade others, and the methods these authors use to make their stories funny. Additionally, students are supported to draw evidence from these texts to construct written and oral analyses.
