Improving Persuasive Texts Worksheets

PDF | 3 pages|Grades: 3 - 6

3 pieces of text for students to rewrite in order to make them more persuasive.

Students improve the simple texts provided by adding additional details, language features and persuasive devices.

The three texts included are:

  • An exposition stating that children should be allowed to eat chocolate.
  • A letter requesting that school lunchtime be extended.
  • An argument between two children about how to spend their leisure time.

Improve one of the texts as a whole-class activity, or allow students to work in pairs. Once the students have had some guided practice, allow them to work individually to improve the texts.
