WALT write a persuasive letter.

In today's zoom we have discussed a little more about what goes into a persuasive letter, remembering the checklist.

 

A persuasive 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 going to write your persuasive letter to the Emperor, look through your main points from yesterday and write a paragraph for each point. Remember to use your time adverbials and rhetorical questions if you can.

Remember:

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

 

 

You may wish to start your letter with this introduction:

 

Dear Emperor,
                          I am writing to you to discuss your crazy decision to destroy my house. I am furious you have sent your engineers to knock down my lovely home to build an ugly road in its place. In this letter I will explain my reasoning.
