in English language arts

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.

    A very useful resource for writing persuasively. The addition of a high sample of work with the persuasive techniques highlighted and explained would further benefit this resource. Thank you and well done.

    Many aspects of this can be applied to other KLA areas.
