First Hour: Persuasive Essay Writing

Years 2-10 small-group writing classes are offered

Step 1: Assessment

Prior to joining a class, all new students must complete a mandatory writing assessment. This enables Amber Fox to identify each child’s specific strengths and weaknesses in persuasive essay writing.


Writing is assessed using the NAPLAN marking rubric and comes with an overall score, a score breakdown, text annotations and 2 pages of detailed written feedback.

Step 2: Detailed and structured lessons with modelled examples

I explicitly teach

1. Text-type structure
2. How to plan, write and edit persuasive texts in the time allowed (20-30 minutes for scholarship/selective high school, 40 minutes for NAPLAN and 30 minutes for ICAS)
3. How to structure paragraphs using the TEEL/PEEL/PETAL method
4. How to elaborate on points and to back each point up with evidence and examples
5. How to include high-scoring vocabulary from the NAPLAN Markers Guide
6. How to effectively use an array of persuasive devices, adjectives, adverbs, as well as accurate punctuation, grammar and spelling.


Modelled examples

In every lesson, Amber Fox provides students with a FULL modelled plan, a FULL modelled, 5-paragraph persuasive essay as well as recommended high-scoring vocabulary words from the NAPLAN Markers Guide. This allows students to see what a high-scoring essay looks like.
