This teaching unit provides opportunities to read, debate and write effective persuasive argument and/or balanced discussions. It focuses on making appropriate language, style and structural choices to meet a particular purpose and audience. 

Topics have been selected to appeal to children’s interests and teachers may use the resources as they are, or adapt them to suit their specific needs. Pupils are required to:

- Identify and discuss elements of persuasion

- Recognise the difference between the expression of a viewpoint and the presentation of a balanced discussion

- Understand how texts can be adapted to suit different purposes and audiences

- Use clear language to present a spoken argument or point of view

- Learn and apply the sophisticated techniques of writing an effective argument

Pupils will have the opportunity to explore issues, some contentious, and carry out their own research in order to speak and write with authority.  They will identify key language, structure and organization of a balanced discussion and apply it in their own writing. Following teacher modeling, children write a balanced and reasoned discussion selecting their own approach and medium for each, to suit their purpose and audience.
