Persuasive Writing Activities
There are several activities linked throughout this set of teaching slides. Here are some other low-prep persuasive writing activities you can do with your students to prepare them for writing their very own persuasive text:
- Hold a classroom pet debate. Divide the class into two groups – one in favour of class pets and the other against it. Each group can research and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of having a pet in the classroom.
- Book vs. Movie debate. Choose a book that has been adapted into a movie. Have students read the book, watch the movie, and then write a persuasive essay arguing whether the book or the movie is better and why.
- Outdoor learning proposal. Ask students to write a persuasive letter advocating for more outdoor learning activities.
- If I Were the Prime Minister… ask students to imagine they are the Prime Minister. What are the issues or changes they would make if they were in this position, explaining their reasons and goals?
