1. Start with a story about a time you said look and got people to pay
attention to something.
2. Tell students that writers write to change the world they sometimes look
at the world, seeing problems and solutions.
3. Tell students the story.
4. Point to the anchor chart and show students the new section added.
5. Writing my own persuasive entries in my writers notebook. I sat
wondering about a problem or solution and I couldnt come up with any.
Then I remembered that when I get stuck I have a strategy I can use to
get unstuck.
6. I thought, what person is noteworthy? Who is worthy of me (and others)
7. Jot down a list on chart paper with students.
8. People who are noteworthy and make a list.
9. Repeat the steps I have performed with the class. Point out each step
and then make students aware of the things they can do to make
themselves better writers as well.
10. I listed people in mine life who I felt were noteworthy, however in
your own lives at home or outside of school you may have other people
who are noteworthy. Right now on your fingers make a list of those

16. Students will make a list of these people they thought of and then
they will begin to write about the person just as I have.
17. Writers will then go off on their own and write about that person
and they are going to persuade the class about why that person is
important. Students can choose to continue to write about this person or
another topic such as problems that they see around the school.
18. Remind writers that they have the anchor chart to refer to if
19. Allow students to write for the remainder of the lesson.
20. While students are write go around the room and confer with
students about their writing and what they are writing about. How they
could make their speech better and what they could add.

Reflections and Documentation/Evidence of Lesson Effectiveness

While conferring with students during their writing time allow students to
show or tell you what they have done. I will be able to determine from this if
my writers need more practice making lists and choosing their topics.
