A TEEL paragraph technique poster, explanatory worksheet and graphic organiser.
Persuasive texts have three sections: an introduction, arguments and a conclusion. Each of these sections are written using paragraphs.
Just like the text itself, paragraphs also have their own distinct structure. One way to remember this structure is the acronym, ‘TEEL’.
T = Write your topic sentence
E = Support your point with evidence
E = Explain how the evidence supports your view
L = Link back to the topic or issue
This resource contains two posters, an explanatory worksheet and a graphic organiser to be used when planning a persuasive paragraph. A version of the graphic organiser is available in Microsoft Word to enable students to type their content directly into the document.
Some people choose to use the acronym ‘PEEL’. If this is the case for you, please see our PEEL version of this resource.
