The Art of Persuasive Writing

We are currently winding up our Stage 3 focus on Persuasive Writing (Exposition Writing). Some students have expressed a desire to continue on with their practice - good news, considering NAPLAN is in Week 3 of Term 2 and we commence class debating shortly!
Here are two videos I have shown my class, in Stage 3 I believe writing tends to 'fine tune' in many of my students rather than develop at a rapid pace.

I hope you enjoy, the second clip is much more technical however it is actually written and presented by an 11 year old girl who has appeared on Oprah to discuss her writing gift.
