WALT: Understand the features of a persuasive writing


The aim of a persuasive text is to try and change someone's opinion about a topic. For example, you might want to persuade someone that fidget spinners are good or you might want to persuade them that fidget spinners are bad. 


The persuasive text will have up to three clear arguments that connect with each other. Whether you are writing for or against, all your arguments must be of the same persuasion (either all for or all against) otherwise you won't be able to change someone's mind!


Unlike the informal letter from a few weeks ago, a persuasive piece must have a formal tone. A formal piece will use lots of adverb starters and subordinate clauses to help give extra information. Here are some examples of sentence openers:


Take a look at the PowerPoint which explains in more detail the features of a persuasive text and gives an example. 


The task today is to choose one of the topics at the end of the PowerPoint and write a persuasive piece on it. Use the sentence starters above to help.
