Posters to help introduce the basic structure of persuasive writing.

Understanding the structure of persuasive writing can be difficult for young children to grasp. This simple and effective teaching resource includes 3 sets of posters:

  • 5 x posters detailing the contents of each paragraph in persuasive writing (introduction, three arguments and conclusion) as well as some sentence starters.
  • 2 x examples of persuasive writing clearly split into the main structure headings.
    • Dogs Make the Best Pets.
    • Homework is Unnecessary.

Laminate and display these posters as a visual reminder to your students about what is needed in persuasive writing.

"I love teach starter and am so thankful to have found such a great resource collection. The fee is only a few hours pay and I saved myself that much work within the first 15 minutes!" ~ Nanci, a happy Teach Starter member.

    I have displayed these posters on my WAGOLL writing wall. My students constantly refer to them to support the structure of their persuasive texts. I’m wondering if you have similar posters for narrative and other text types? They’re excellent for continued reference by students.

      Hello Brooke,
      While we don’t have a narrative poster set in the same style as this resource, we do have a huge narrative writing collection here:
      https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource-collection/narrative-writing/
      I’m sure you will find something to help you out in this collection. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
