Sorting persuasive phrases


As part of a recent unit in which the Grade 5s have been taking part in debates, the children sorted some persuasive phrases into different levels.

They then chose phrases from a level that suited them to improve the persuasiveness of their debate.

  1. I really like this activity, because it gets students to think about extending their language and do some inquiry into language beforehand. It’s also creating a language to talk about language. I noticed many of the grade 5s were using new phrases during the debates this week. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Your students were clearly excited about using persuasive vocabulary, as they continued using many of these phrases in art when talking about the debatable “success” of their peers’ photos. This is a great language tool for so many aspects of students’ lives. Thanks for sharing, James.
