Nothing Beats the Real Thing! Resource Downloads. | Curriculum Resources | Scoop.it
Debbie Northway's insight:

Persuasive Language is a free online resource developed by an experienced English & Media Studies teacher to help students refine their understanding of how persuasive language works. Clear definitions and a range of structured activities allow students to analyse language features and visual techniques with a view to developing their grasp of audience, purpose and the power of persuasion. The resource provides a useful tool for teachers in the lead-up to NAPLAN testing early next term, and as an addition to meet the sustainability focus outlined in the National Curriculum.
