Persuasive Writing Bundle

Persuasive Writing Bundle

This bundle includes 9-11 lessons based on “Persuasive Writing”. This pack includes whole lessons that have everything you need to teach the topic and genre. Every lesson has a starter, a plenary, teaching models, group work and individual writing activities and HW tasks. I have also included a handy FAR inspired assessment sheet that can be used to mark the students’ work using specific criteria that they can learn and use to make very clear progress easily, and there is also a self-assessment activity that draws on FAR marking strategies too. It’s suitable for KS3 and KS4. However, some ppts are more suited to KS4 classes and gifted (or accelerated) KS3 classes. You’ll have to make that decision based on your class’ abilities and skills.
