Writing Purposes - Helpsheets/Posters for Literacy and English
These handy helpsheets have been employed by teachers across the curriculum to aid students completing extended writing tasks for a particular purpose. There are helpsheets for:
- Informing
- Describing
- Analysing
- Arguing
- Explaining
- Evaluating
- Persuading
- Instructing
Each helpsheet defines the aim of the writing purpose, details the key writing features to be used, offers sentence starters, and gives a short example of the writing purpose, alongside other hints and tips.
These helpsheets have also been blown up to A3 or A2 size to become engaging and interactive literacy across the curriculum posters.
