Lots of different types of writing
and media try to persuade us.
Here are some examples:
Introduction
Write a statement that explains
the case that you want to argue.
Point 1
State your first point and add further details,
explanations, evidence and examples (this is called elaboration).
Point 2
State your next point and add some elaboration.
Point 3
State your final point and don’t forget the elaboration.
Conclusion
Remind the reader of your argument and review your points.
What do you want to the reader to do now?
Here is one way that you could
organise your persuasive writing:

©
You may only
have one or two
points to explain...
or you might have
even more!
Remember
to be positive and
tell everyone why
you are right!
Point Elaboration
Write a
sentence
(or two) to
explain your
point clearly.
Add more details
to explain what you mean.
Use facts (evidence) and opinions
to give your reasons.
Give examples
(use For example or For instance).

When you are writing your points,
don’t forget add elaboration to each one!

Most types of persuasive writing
use the present tense.
Sometimes, you might need
to use other tenses though!
If these plans go
ahead, it will be
a disaster!
A similar plan
last year
caused chaos!

Facts are definitely true - they can be proved.
Opinions are what we think... but we can
sometimes make opinions sound like facts!

When you are writing, try to involve the reader.
Make them think and encourage them to agree with you!
Can you really...? Start now!
What are you waiting for?
Surely you
agree that...?
Do you want...?
Everyone knows that...
An intelligent person
like yourself...
Do you want to
be part of...? Please can you...

Asking questions is a good way of making your point.
You might not expect the reader to actually answer them,
but they can think about the issue that you are describing.
Can you really...?
Do you really think...?What would
happen if...?
How will your
conscience cope if...?Is it really worth...?
Are we expected to...?

Adverts are a type of
persuasive writing. They
try to get us to buy (or do)
something using some of
these techniques:
Remember that adverts only
tell us the good things and
they may exaggerate too!
