In the Persuasive CAMP, through hands-on games and activities, your students will dive into introductions, how to develop a lead and a position statement, the understanding of ethos, pathos, and logos, creating an argument that persuades your audience, developing arguments, conclusions, creating a well-organized composition, and real student examples.

As your students explore the world of editing, they will leave with a better understanding of grammar rules, review spelling, nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, and commas, experience editing in a BIG, hands-on way, and walk away with real-life test strategies.
