  1. TEACHING WRITING: Persuasive Text Curriculum Team CSO

  2. 2011 NAPLAN Writing “In the 2011 NAPLAN Writing test, students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 will write a persuasive text. Persuasive writing is writing in which the writer needs to convince someone of his or her point of view or opinion. For example, a student may be asked whether reading books or watching TV is better. The student would present his or her opinion on this topic and would include reasons for that opinion. In writing this way, the student is attempting to persuade the reader to agree with his or her opinion.” http://www.naplan.edu.au/verve/_resources/NAPLAN_2011_Writing_Fact_Sheet.pdf
