Dragons' Den Persuasive Project! (Building Speaking & Listening and Persuasive Writing Skills!)

This resource is perfect for enabling students to build both their persuasive writing and their speaking and listening skills. Based upon the popular BBC series 'Dragons' Den', students have the opportunity to research, design, pitch, and evaluate arguments for their own inventions, whilst simultaneously analysing persuasive pitches, revising persuasive techniques, structuring arguments and articulating convincingly. Included is a 16 page booklet (I would say at least 4-5 hour lessons of tasks) that lead students to: - Introduce themselves and their interests; - Watch persuasive pitches (links included) and identify persuasive devices; - Analyse why persuasive devices are effective; - Structure an analysis appropriately; - Brainstorm ideas for an invention using imagination and helpful aiding questions; - Formulate an argument by considering key questions and counter arguments; - Write and present a persuasive pitch; - Peer-evaluate and self-evaluate persuasive pitches. I have also provided some examples of news stories featuring the worst and best pitches from the den, in order to provoke discussion about what makes a strong pitch. All images are licensed for commercial use and are cited throughout.


Teach students 20 persuasive techniques of the persuasive writing genre with this interactive fun resource. This pack includes 20 Scavenger Hunt cards, 1 Recording Sheet, and an Answer Key to equip students with necessary content information on persuasive writing techniques that they can apply to their own persuasive essays. The persuasive techniques featured in the 20 hunt cards are: ✓ adjectives ✓ adverbs ✓ alliteration ✓ anecdote ✓ sarcasm ✓ connotations ✓ metaphor ✓ exaggeration ✓ evidence ✓ expert opinion ✓ inclusive language ✓ rhetorical question ✓ simile ✓ emotive words ✓ tone ✓ repetition ✓ imagery ✓ cliché ✓ logic ✓ pun ACTIVITY Place the 20 information cards on Persuasive Writing Techniques around the classroom. Students can work individually, in pairs, or in small groups to find the answers to all 20 questions on their recording sheets. They must read the information on each card to find the answer for each corresponding question on their recording sheets. EVIDENCE OF LEARNING ♦ After the hunt, discuss the answers as a class. I have the pdf version of the hunt open on the interactive whiteboard, so students refer to the information card for each question on their recording sheets. ♦ The interactive nature of the hunt makes it fun for students to learn the persuasive techniques characteristic of a persuasive essay. Students will be more confident to use these techniques when writing. Please note that the 20 Hunt cards feature just a definition of each technique type. Students need to read the definition and identify the persuasive technique. This will enable you to assess prior knowledge and also enable students to consciously think of the answer prior to responding or to make an educated guess. Wish you and your students a successful year!

Persuasive Letter Writing Year 5

This is a weeks plan based on writing a persuasive letter. First of all, it involves teaching children the different persuasive tricks such as flattery, rhetorical questions, repetition, exaggeration etc. These lessons also involve children orally trying to persuade each other, or their class teacher by using the above techniques. Children enjoyed persuading alot. These lessons also touch on letter writing (formal) and ensure that children use the correct structure and tone depending on who they are writing to. We happened to be learning about Ancient Greece at the time, so the letter in which is used as a model, is connected to Ancient Greece. *UPDATED* This resource has become increasingly more popular, so I have decided to update it by adding extra scaffolding and a lower ability version of the letter as a model. Please leave a review in what you liked/disliked/needs improving and I'll happily alter the resource.

I couldn't find a text on line which provided the example of what I was looking for in a model persuasive letter. So I wrote one (and wish that i had done earlier as it was quicker) This is a letter to the head teacher which tries to persuade them to get rid of school uniform. It can be used as a model text to look at with the children to identify features and language. It could be used a starting letter to be up-leveled and improved We used it as the 'Imitate' text at the beginning of a T4W cycle Hope you find it useful and it saves you some time.
