The resource contains a powerpoint presentation covering persuasive writing techniques, with notes in the booklet/worksheets. I started lesson one with persuasive techniques bingo (from Teachit) to illustrate the range of rhetorical techniques before focusing students on the 8 techniques in the PERSUADE mnemonic.

    Liked the use of the mnemonic - persuade - as a way for younger students to recall persuasive techniques used in writing
