					Writing to Persuade
 When Writing to Argue, we use
         AFOREST.
  When Writing to Persuade,
            We use


  WRAP A PLUM!
             W is for WHY
• Why are we writing this particular text?

• (To answer this question, you will need to
  refer to the task you have been set)

• Example: We are writing a letter to the
  council to persuade them to collect
• rubbish more often
   R IS FOR RHETORICAL
 QUESTION and for REPETITION
• Rhetorical questions immediately involve
  the reader in your problem.
• They start to think about what you are
  saying, which helps to persuade them

• Repetition gives emphasis to your writing.
• Eg. Do not ignore them, do not look the
  other way, do not harden your heart…
      A IS FOR AUDIENCE
• Audience is the person or people to
  whom you are writing.

• Again you need to look at your exam
  question to decide what language you
  are going to use. Are you writing to a
  mate, to a head-teacher, to a parent?
P IS FOR POLITE LANGUAGE
 You want to persuade your audience, not
 turn them against you!

 Therefore, you are going to be polite in
  your language, eg. :
• Please consider what I have written
• It would be wonderful if we could all agree
    A IS FOR ALLITERATION


• If we use alliteration, it helps our
  words to be remembered.

• Eg. Surely such a simple solution
  would be safest.
       P IS FOR PERSONAL
            PRONOUNS

• Using personal pronouns makes the
  reader feel valued and involved.



• Eg. We would like to offer you the chance
  to help our young people.
  L IS FOR LISTS OF THREE
• List of three can be of anything, adjectives,
  places, types of things, etc.

• Eg. It is a cold, heartless and cruel
  world that the poor, the old and the
  homeless have to face this winter.
      U IS FOR UNLESS, IF,
           BECAUSE
• These are connectives and sentence
  starters that warn us about CAUSE and
  EFFECT.

• Eg. UNLESS we help the poor people,
  many of them will starve to death this
  winter.
   M IS FOR MODAL VERBS
Modal verbs are words that tell you
What might happen:
• would, could, should, might, may,

• Eg. We could donate our left-over food, if
  the council would allow us to, but they
  think it might not be safe.
          SO REMEMBER…
•   If you want to persuade someone,
•   W – Why are you writing this ?
•    R – Rhetorical question / Repetition
•    A - Audience (Who are you writing to?)
•    P- Polite Language
•    A – Alliteration
•    P – Personal Pronouns
•    L – Lists of three eg. adjectives
•    U – Unless, if , because
•    M – Modal verbs, eg. Would, could
