Persuasive writing

S
Teaching Persuasive
      Writing
       Aim of this session:
 To learn how to use persuasive
 writing techniques in your exam
Guilt: persuade a group
  of teenagers to give
    money to charity

 ‘10 children in Africa will
die this month if you don’t
contribute £1 to Oxfam.’
Rhetorical Question:
   persuade a group of
students not to drop litter
How would you feel if you knew
 your grandchildren might be
 brought up in an society that is
 polluted because of your
 ignorance?
Imagery: persuading the
 local council to help ease
   congestion in the city.

Picture the calm streets and the clean
  smell in the air. The roads are no
  longer cluttered with cars and
  motorbikes; you are free to walk and
  enjoy the natural environment.
Personal Pronouns:
  persuade year 11 to eat
     more healthily at
       lunchtimes
Together WE can all motivate
 each other to prevent heart
 disease.
Emotive Language: persuade
        a member of your
  family/someone you know to
          quit smoking
76 year old Betty’s health has
 deteriorated rapidly. Years of smoking
 and ignoring friends’ advice has left her
 gasping for breath, unable to walk up
 the stairs. Her grandchildren cry
 because they can do nothing to help her.
Repeat your point
     persuade your
 constituency to vote for
        you as PM
The most crucial thing that could
 change our world is “education,
 education, education.”
Stress that point!
• When writing to persuade you need to
  really STRESS your point. You can do
  this by underlining words, using capital
  letters or by using bold writing. For
  example, Stop smoking NOW!
Use the rule of 3: persuade
  Year 11 to take AS level
           History
Use three hard-hitting words to emphasise
  your point.
For example: ‘In AS level History you will
  learn how to be analytical, evaluative and
  critical. These are all skills that can be
  applied across the curriculum, and that
  many universities will be looking for.’
Provocative Language: create a
poster which would persuade young
  men to sign up to join the armed
  forces on the outbreak of WWII

It is your duty to serve your country
  and ensure victory for all!
Statistics : Persuade
 someone to stay on at
  school and complete
         a.levels
You can make these up!!

82% of teenagers that leave school at 16, earn
  the minimum wage for the next 20 years of
  their lives.
