Real World Influence
Workshop or Residency for grades 6th through 12th
Students will use elements from other lessons, such as science, and “sell” these things through fun and creative approaches to persuasive writing. For example, if students are learning about the solar system, they can build a case for why their chosen planet is the best one. They’ll choose facts, details, and other items to highlight. Then they’ll write short pieces to market their findings. Together, we’ll explore how to identify the right audience, what they want, and how best to appeal to them. The final product will be an advertisement (such as for a magazine), an Instagram post, or other fun pop culture mediums.
