PERSUASIVE Writing - language - structure - formatting

PERSUASIVE Writing - language - structure - formatting


Scaffold your students through persuasive writing to complete either a letter to the editor or a persuasive review of a film, live event or novel/short story.  Note, I've pretty much taken the relevant pages from my formatting templates, stylistic features and developing ideas resources, added an appropriate list of achievement criteria/checklist and Bob's your uncle.  (I say that but it took me a whole day!)  You can flip through this resource here!


This resource includes:

⭐ An overview of what students must do, including what persuasive and formal writing mean.

⭐ Space to add and annotate examples (students/teacher finds these)

⭐ A list of achievement criteria/student checklist so that students know what you're looking for.

⭐ Lists of appropriate language features

⭐ Lists of appropriate structural features

⭐ Ways for students to develop ideas

⭐ Formatting templates to plan and write for 3 genre (letter to the editor + 3 types of review)
