Persuasive Podcasts

Ms. Biehl and Ms. Saxon’s second grade Spectrum class have been persuading once again!  After they wrote persuasive letters to me about books that we needed in our media center, they worked with me on writing book reviews in persuasive ways.  We studied the book reviews on School Library Journal, Spaghetti Book Club, and our own media center blog to see what was needed in a book review.  Then, students thought of ways to include persuasion to try to convince people to read the books they were writing about.  They worked on these pieces in their classrooms.  The students came back to the media center once again with their final drafts and recorded their writing as a podcast using Audacity.  The podcasts can be found on our media center webpage under book talks. and they are also linked here.
