In Association with Nasen

Persuade, Argue and Advise

Another amazing set of 40 lovingly-crafted cards to hone your students' persuasive writing skills. We think you'll soon see what a very flexible resource this is. The variety of tasks offers your students plenty of choice while the teaching notes give you tips and techniques to pass on to your students.

This set consists of 40 fantastic cards. 14 cards have prompts to persuade, 13 cards have prompts to argue and 13 cards have prompts to advise. With these cards students will become familiar with key features of persuasive writing, including exaggeration, assertion, addressing the readerdirectly, use of emotive language, hard and soft evidence and writing that appeals to the senses. It is helpful for teachers to give students definite techniques to use, for example rhetorical questions, three-part lists (such as three emotive words and three reasons), strong adjectives and verbs.

More able students will be able to answer the questions freely while the less able can use the questions as a writing frame to scaffold their text and provide their answers in simple sentences. Instructions and teaching tips complete the pack.

You can use Prompts as a stimulus for writing as well as for helping to develop essential speaking and listening and thinking skills.

Printed on card, as a multisensory alternative to book format, the cards are single sided and measure 150mm x 100mm.

The clear typeface is 11 point size. Students say the neat presentation makes Prompts feel ‘grown-up’ compared to more typical SEN materials.
