Easy to follow. I’ve used it with low ability EAL students as a building block.
Great - very useful for Y7/8. Saved me so much time. Do you have the rest of the scheme to post? I'd be very grateful!!!

This sample assessment is based on previous versions of the Australian Curriculum.
Students are able to develop an awareness of how everyday texts seek to position them. Applying this awareness to their own writing and speaking will help students evaluate how best to position readers or listeners. Continued practice of writing and speaking formally in a familiar context will encourage students to feel more confident and interact successfully in different situations.

Using Persuasive Devices (Persuasive Writing NAPLAN)
Lesson 5 of 8 in this unit
- Persuasive writing
In this lesson, students will develop the skill of elaborating on arguments to persuade a reader. They will watch a promotional clip and assess how it works to persuade the audience. Students will identify a product that they regard favourably and work independently to identify reasons that others should consider purchasing it. Students will view some examples of how to elaborate on arguments then draft a written persuasive piece that uses elaborated arguments. This lesson is designed to provide valuable practice for NAPLAN, the national literacy test held in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9*.
- elaborate upon arguments to persuade the reader in a persuasive text.
- identify the audience for their persuasive text
- select arguments that are relevant to the intended audience
- elaborate on their arguments to ensure the impact and relevance of them is clear to the reader.
