Title Developing Persuasive Writers in Senior School

You and your students encounter persuasive writing daily. Whether it’s the television commercial showing a famous celebrity using a specific toothpaste, the radio announcer telling you why you should keep listening to his station, or even a blog site examining the life of your famous rock star-- persuasive writing plays an important role in your everyday life. Developing Persuasive Writers: A Workshop for Secondary Teachers presents practical and philosophical approaches for teaching writing, while examining issues every teacher faces—such as what is meant to write a sound academic argument, how to construct a sound academic argument and how to link critical writing and critical reading skills. Participants will leave the module with essential strategies and hands-on practice they can immediately implement in their classrooms.
