Persuasive Writing Planning Template

PDF, Word | 1 page|Grades: 4 - 6

A planning template to use when writing a persuasive or opinion text.

Use this planning template when teaching your students how to compose opinion or persuasive text.

To cut down on paper, print on cardstock and place inside of a dry erase sleeve. Then, students can use a dry erase marker to fill it out and wipe clean after they have written their text.

This resource works well when working with your guided writing groups or when placed in a writing center.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between portrait or landscape format as well as PDF,  editable word version, or interactive google slides. We have also included a persuasive device checklist for this resource.
