Dear Classmates and Mentors,
My peanut butter and jelly sandwich is THE best peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It has the best, softest bread, the creamiest smoothest peanut butter, and the BEST jelly…strawberry! My sandwich will taste better than anyone else’s because I spread the peanut butter AND the jelly all the way to the corners of the bread before I put it together. That means that every single bite will have the perfect combination of peanut butter and jelly! In conclusion, that is why my sandwich is the best sandwich.

Synopsis: Mentors will talk with students about the word Persuade (causing someone to do something through successful reasoning or argument) and complete a lesson in persuasion. Mentors will share how they use persuasion in their current jobs…why should we buy your product over someone else’s? Why should we try your way over another? This is a great life skill! In this lesson, students will convince us as to why we should try their PB&J over their classmates!
