Activity: Conversing

The teacher will restate what was taught yesterday in writing. "Yesterday we were working on adding evidence to support our opinion. This is important to persuade our audience to our opinion. Another way to do this is to comparing our book to another book series." This gets the reader interested and creates a way for the reader to relate to a new book series through one that they have previously read!"
