WALT plan an emotive letter. 

 

Today during our zoom lesson we have looked at chapter 2 of the book and have discussed what goes into a persuasive letter. 

 

A persusive letter contains:

  • Dear ..., 
  • An opening paragraph explaining why you are writing. 
  • Persuasive language.
  • Rhetorical questions. 
  • Clear points, one made per paragraph. 
  • Opening points with time adverbials (Firstly, secondly, finally) that are punctuated with a comma at the end. 

 

Today you are to look at the example letter and begin planning your own letter of persuasion as to why the Romans should not knock down Brit's house. Decide your three main arguments and write them down, you could use the planning sheet below to help you. 

Remember:

  • a time adverbial is firstly, secondly, thirdly, finally.
  • A rhetorical question is a question that doesn't need to be answered. 

 

 

Example and worksheet to follow.
