FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “{FREE!} Persuasive Writing Prompts”

by Blair Turner
2nd - 8th Grade

Here are 24 thought-provoking prompts to jump-start persuasive writing. The Common Core standards put a strong emphasis on persuasive writing skills. These prompts allow students to experiment with a variety of types of writing with a common purpose.

Print on card stock, laminate, and cut apart and you're ready to use these in a variety of ways! I've used them in my own classroom successfully in a few different ways:

•daily "do now" at the start of writing workshop
•independent center activity during writing or ELA
•resource for reluctant or "stuck" writers.
•prompt for writing homework
•pre- and post-assessment prompt before and after teaching persuasive writing unit
•straight-forward and valuable activity to leave in your sub-tub!

I've designed these prompts to be appropriate for different types of use--you could use them in a "quick-write" format, or to help students generate ideas for longer-term writing projects that they will bring through the writing cycle. These open-ended prompts are appropriate for a wide range of grade levels and abilities.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “FREE Digital Persuasive Language Worksheets”

by Stacey Lloyd
7th - 9th Grade

By the time students get to middle school, or even high school, they usually know the names of persuasive language techniques. However, they still need to practice identifying and explaining them in use. These FREE worksheets will help facilitate that process.


NOTE: These digital worksheets are designed to be used with Google Slides™. If you would prefer a PRINT VERSION, CLICK HERE!



20 Techniques of Persuasive Language: This one-slide informational resource covers twenty common techniques of persuasion found in advertising, propaganda and persuasive speeches and writing. It is useful for students to keep in their notebooks.

Identifying Persuasive Techniques in Advertizing: This activity puts students’ knowledge of persuasive language to the test by requiring them to identify how techniques are used in extracts from advertisements. This is a great way for students to see the ‘everyday’ usage of these concepts.

Identifying Persuasive Techniques in a Political Speech: This exercise focuses on an extract from Winston Churchill’s speech “Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat”. Students are required to read the extract and then complete the table, identifying the effects of the different techniques.

Using Persuasive Techniques: This activity requires students to put their knowledge into action by writing their own persuasive sentences with the use of persuasive language techniques.

*Answer Keys included where necessary.*
