Product Description
This workbook presents some ideas for teachers to use when teaching students to write a persuasive text. It contains examples of language features and persuasive devices that give students ideas for their own writing. This workbook is targeted at students in Year 5 to Year 7, but is also suitable for older students.

The activities in this book can be completed in a single hour lesson, or can be expanded to form a unit of work lasting 5 weeks, depending on how much experience students have had at persuasive writing. The aim of this workbook is not to provide an inclusive program, but to share some ideas with teachers that they can incorporate into their own lesson units. This resource also includes a marking grid for students to assess their own writing skills. If a student does not score a point in any section, this gives evidence of the need for further targeted instruction in this area.

Achievement in the final writing task is as follows:

● 10/20 - demonstrates some knowledge of the purpose of a persuasive text and how to draft a framework to present the persuasive ideas.
● 12/20 - demonstrates some knowledge of how to attempt to enhance a persuasive text.
● 15/20 - demonstrates the ability to understand the purpose of a persuasive text, how to structure ideas in a logical order in the text, and how to use at least one effective device to enhance the persuasive writing.
● 18/20 - demonstrates clear understandings of the purpose of a persuasive text, how to craft a logical sequence of viewpoints that persuade, and how to enhance through the use of effective vocabulary, complex sentences and literary devices, keeping all spellings and punctuation correct.
● 20/20 - demonstrates advanced skills in writing persuasively.
