Types of Writing Styles: Use the PEACE sign to help

Part of Tools for Annotating from my TPT Store
Coming Soon!

There are at least three types of writing. How do we get our students to remember and know the differences between them? Usually an acronym helps. The most famous one is PIE for writing to PERSUADE, INFORM, and ENTERTAIN. I came up with two more as we are calling they types of writing different names with the arrival of the Common Core State Standards. PIN which stands for Persuasion, Information, and Narrative. PEaCE is my favorite however, because it uses the language from the CCSS. The P stands for PERSUADE as usual, the E stands for EXPLAIN, the small ‘a’ simply means ‘and,’ and CE stands for CONVEY EXPERIENCE (real or imaginary).
