Exciting persuasion/persuasive writing topic year 4?

Discussion in 'English' started by markymark455, Jul 2, 2011.

  1. Hey everyone,

    I'm teaching a persuasive writing unit next week and I was hoping to relate it to the main summer topic of Egypt. I was thinking possibly the first part of the week focuses on an advert/radio advert while the second half looks at writing a persuasive article for a travel brochure. I'm really just looking for any advice to make it exciting-I'm conscious that it could start off boring if the hook is not right...and to make matters worse I'm being observed monday/tues.
    If anyone has any fun ideas I'd really really appreciate it :)

    Many thanks

    When I was teaching a topic on Canals we did job adverts for Navvies.
    What about job adverts for workers to build the pyramids? Really good for highlighting hyperbole!
