Upgrade to Access | 15 pages (PDF)|Grades: 3 - 5

A set of posters to display in the classroom to 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.

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