Write On, Mercy!

The first picture book I'm using this year is Write On, Mercy! The Secret Life of Mercy Otis Warren by Gretchen Woelfle (ISBN 978-1-59078-822-6). Our English 3 teachers are teaching American Revolution literature and persuasive writing this six weeks. Students will also learn the different appeals (logos, pathos, and ethos), audience, exigence and purpose.

I will read the story to the class and then work with the teacher to discuss different excerpts from Mercy's writings. I'm still working on the specifics, but will post when I've got more information and we've gone through it a couple of times!
