Writing to Persuade and Argue

2-lesson PowerPoint, originally delivered to KS3, exploring the techniques of writing to argue and persuade. The first lesson analyses an example of persuasive writing through an NHS stop-smoking leaflet. The second lesson develops this understanding by applying knowledge to an example question. Students are encouraged to use the planning frame to help structure their work before using all the techniques learnt in their own writing.

A useful two-parter lesson that introduces students to these writing skills that can be built on when tackling more in-depth writing tasks at KS4.
