A persuasive speech writing task, based around real-world issues affecting children.

In this task, students imagine that they have been asked to represent the children of their country at a meeting of world leaders. They must choose a major issue affecting children around the world and convince the leaders at the meeting to take urgent action on this issue. The issues are:

  • providing every child with access to clean drinking water
  • providing every child with the opportunity to go to school
  • providing every child with immunisations against preventable diseases.

Students research, plan and write a persuasive speech based on one of the above issues. Teachers may wish for students to rehearse and present these speeches to the class.

This teaching resource includes:

  • a brainstorming mind map
  • a research graphic organiser
  • a planning template
  • a checklist for structure, language features and persuasive devices.
