The new Seven Steps Persuasive Writing Manual is nothing short of brilliant.
This fresh guide uses the Seven Steps to illuminate the secrets of persuasive writing by enabling students to play with both sides of an argument, tailor their writing to a specific audience and of course use a swag of persuasive devices. This makes the persuasive text an attainable goal for all children.
The new activities are highly engaging, using current topics and multi-modal literacy, and are easily adaptable to a range of age groups. The focus on oral language is bound to have every classroom buzzing with creativity, laughter and energy.
The Eight-Week Starter Plan is every teacher’s friend, as it shows how to explicitly implement the core structural Steps into a classroom. With a Curriculum Matrix linking every activity to the English curriculum descriptors for Years 3 to 6, it takes the guesswork right out of planning, so teachers can focus on the main thing: encouraging their students to be clever, confident and competent writers.
As a Grade 5 teacher, I am excited to see how this new manual will shape the minds of my children and revolutionise the writing of my class.”
