Language techniques: fact/opinion and rule of three

Language techniques: fact/opinion and rule of three

A differentiated starter on facts/opinion when introducing language techniques (persuasion). Use the polar bear questions first, and high achievers can move on to Shakespeare (or allow pupils the choice at the start). Also includes a handout on Rule of Three. I designed this for use at KS3, but then, teaching lower-ability classes at GCSE, it came in very useful as a resource for language study in all kinds of units: multi-modal/media texts; speaking and listening writing own speeches; the study of spoken language; reading non-fiction; and functional writing.
