Blasting through A FOREST for persuasive arguments

This term, 3/4W have been learning about persuasive writing. Guess what A FOREST is? A FOREST is a way to remember to include persuasive devices for the arguments part of your persuasive writing. See below to see what A FOREST stands for:

Alliteration: for example, homework is stressful and silly.

Facts

Opinions

Rhetorical question

Emotions

Statistics

Three – rule of three. For example dogs are playful, cute and cuddly.

Everyone worked in groups to make a persuasive argument video that included: a linking word, the topic sentence, evidence and devices from A FOREST.

This is a video we made with arguments.

Please watch our videos. Did you like our videos? If so, why? Can you also identify which parts of A FOREST were used?

      Thank you for looking at our blog and commenting. Did you notice which parts of ‘A FOREST’ we used in the videos?
      Ms Wong told us you worked well on your persuasive arguments last year. Some of us have read your persuasive arguments in the book corner and it was great!
