Persuasive Text - Exposition
Description of activity
Students draft and construct a persuasive letter.
Students have been studying an HSIE unit on ‘Local Government and Cooperating Communities’. They have expressed their opinions on a number of local and global issues. Students have explored the forms and features of persuasive texts in spoken, written and visual forms. They were then asked to demonstrate their understanding of persuasive techniques by composing a letter to convince the reader.

Students will be assessed on their ability to:
- use appropriate written language features for the selected audience
- express a point of view in writing with some supporting statements
