Passion in our Persuasive Writing

Our main genre type that we have been focusing on has been Persuasion Writing.

What is the purpose?

The purpose of a persuasive text is to develop ideas and supporting details in order to present a logical argument from a particular point of view.

We began by discussing the structure of persuasive texts by looking at several different examples.

Structure

Introduction: States what the issue or topic is and what you think about it. It can also be used to attract attention.

Arguments: These are a series of points with supporting evidence.

Conclusion: This is where you restate your opinion and your arguments.

We were able to choose a topic that we felt passionate about and write a persuasive piece to convince the reader of our opinion. There were a range of topics chosen, some focusing on things to change at school and others focusing wider on issues involving the world around us.

We were all very excited to share our view points of different issues and it was great to have the opportunity to share our opinions. Some of us used the iPads to help make our arguments stronger by collecting evidence to support what we wanted to write. We also had to make sure we used strong words which are called modal verbs.

Some examples of these words include:

For                                                               Against

must                                                            must not

will                                                                 will not

would                                                            would not

should                                                           should not

may                                                                may not

always                                                            never

Our drafts were completed last term and we have now been using time in computing to type them up onto a Word Document.

Here are some samples of what we wrote.
