The following resource can be used to introduce persuasive writing to students from year 3 -6, or further if you have reluctant writers.
This resource aims to support teachers in explaining the structure of persuasive writing, breaking it down into students language.
The use of the monkey metaphor is to assist students in remembering the structure:
Monkey: Your point of view.
Bananas: Arguments to help your monkey grow.
Gorilla: Your strong, intimidating conclusion.
This metaphor has been effective in supporting my lower literacy students, whilst also providing my higher students with a fun way to interact with persuasive writing.
