Persuasive Talking and Listening Task:
We often use persuasive language to help us to win an argument! Think of a time when you have had an argument about something or tried to get your way, for example, what film the family should go see or persuading your parents to get you a pet. Think about if you used any persuasive language to make people come around to your way of thinking! Using persuasive language is a much more effective tool to use in an argument than just shouting and repeating the same points. .
Choose a subject that you want to persuade your parent or sibling on, for example:
-Why you should get extra treats this week
-Why you should get pocket money
-Why you deserve extra TV time
-Why you should get a day off school work
-Why your siblings shouldn't always get to use the PlayStation
Once you've decided what you'd like take time to plan your argument by making rough notes on points you can make, evidence to support your points and the type of persuasive words that you will use, e.g. positive/negative language depending onion you are for or against the subject.
I hope you win your argument ;) Good luck!
