    • Persuasive Writing
    • How would you persuade someone to do…. ( or not to do ) something, or to buy an item or service?
    • When writing something which is intended to persuade, there are several important features to remember.
    • Checklist For Persuasive WritingOpen with a thesis/stance of the issue being addressed.State your position on the issue. FOR or AGAINST!Main body of text contains the arguments that are elaboratedwith reasons and evidence ( facts ).End with a conclusion.
    • Language Features Use mainly the present tense. Use emotive language. Use technical language. Use rhetorical questions. Try to make opinions sound like facts. Use powerful verbs and strong adjectives.
    • TaskRead the following text, looking forthe elements of persuasive writing which we have outlined.
    • Calling All SleepyheadsSleep is important. Nobody fullyunderstands why we need it, but scientists think that the body uses the time to recover and to repair damage. When we fall asleep our heart and breathing rates slow down, muscles relaxand our senses rest. If this is the case, are you giving your body enough rest?
    • Lack of sleep means that the body and brain do not work properly. If you don’t go to bed at a reasonable time, you will be sleepy in class and not learn so much. Tiredness means you may not be able to think clearly, and you may also be a danger to other people. Accidents can happen. You will lack energy, and even playing becomes too much of an effort. Is staying up late really worth it?
    • There is some truth in the old saying“Early to bed and early to rise, makes us healthy, wealthy and wise.”Next time you start to argue about your bedtime, remember your body needs a break. From: Have Your Say by Karavis and Matthews
