Arguments and persuasive texts
If you are looking for lesson resources, worksheets and templates for teaching persuasive writing and argumentative writing, we’ve got a wide range of engaging resources to improve KS3 and GCSE English students’ writing skills and develop their use of emotive language.
From persuasive letter examples to inspiring writing prompts, you’ll find detailed lists of persuasive techniques and writing techniques they can use, as well as scaffolded, step-by-step resources to show students how to structure their ideas through paragraphs to create balanced arguments.
Students sometimes struggle to present a persuasive argument, express their point of view clearly and coherently, and offer counterarguments, so you’ll also find models and exemplars to help them to brainstorm and identify the main points before they start writing.
If you are looking for GCSE exam practice tasks, like articles, speeches and persuasive letter writing activities, we’ve got a range of exam-style questions to hone exam skills and confidence too.
