Product Description
Originally delivered to a weak KS4 class as an introduction to non-fiction and writing to argue, this lesson is a helpful opener into developing these writing skills. The lesson can be adapted to KS3 but teachers may find this too simplistic for more-able KS4 students. This lesson could be used as a way in for debating/persuasive writing work.

The lesson explores what is a counter-argument to then apply this to statements which should generate some interesting class discussion! There is a text to analyse, identifying what the writer's arguments are for the students to create their own counter-arguments.
