Secondary English persuasive writing resources

Persuasive writing is a key topic which appears in all English language curriculum maps and is often one of the trickiest formats for students to master. From understanding what language features are, to highlighting them in a piece of text, analysing their use and implementing them in writing, persuasive writing draws in a range of skills for students to learn. So, to help you and your students out, we have gathered together a range of lessons and supportive materials to use in the classroom.
