In addition to submitting your k12 work, UtahWrite is also a great resource for practicing persuasive writing skills. Students in grades 5 and 8 are required to come to the school, to complete a Direct Writing Assessment. This writing assessment is given with a Persuasive Writing Prompt. (like - "do you think students should be required to wear school uniforms" or "do dogs or cats make better pets"). Utah Write has loaded a handful of Persuasive Writing prompts for students to practice and improve their writing skills. Use the links below to view the Persuasive Prompts for your child's course.
