Persuasive Writing teaches students to recognise and discuss the specific features of persuasive texts so that they can begin to write their own effective persuasive pieces.
Written for students in Years 3 to 7, this book will be especially useful for students in Years 3, 5 and 7 who are asked to write their own persuasive text in the annual NAPLAN* English test.
Persuasive Writing exposes students to a number of short persuasive texts, provides examples of possible unseen persuasive topics, looks in detail at ten persuasive devices and highlights the specific structure that most well-written persuasive pieces follow.
Linked to the Australian Curriculum, this book is easy to use and will make a valuable classroom resource.
