Similes compare two things saying using 'like' or 'as'.
For example: Use Johnson’s new baby wipes, for skin as soft as a baby’s bottom.

Metaphors do the same thing without using 'like' or 'as'.
For example: The typical teenage boy's room is a disaster area. T Tripling or The Rule of Three

Using three words together captures the reader's attention

For example: faith, hope and charity; the good, the bad and the ugly; sex, drugs and rock and roll. F R Rhetorical Question Does anyone have any initial ideas on what is meant by persuasive techniques? A FOREST Now you are ready to discover persuasive techniques used
in writing. This is an acronym which can help you to
remember seven different persuasive techniques. Asking a question that does not require an answer. Now it's your turn Eg. We all want to live in a safe and secure society, don't we?

ONE MINUTE CHALLENGE: In pairs, answer these questions:
What effect does a rhetorical question have on its audience?
Why do we ask questions that don't need answers? Persuasive writing is very dramatic and exaggerates a lot.

For example:
Justin Bieber / Britney Spears is so gorgeous. I will die if I can’t meet him / her.

That teacher was so mean. Our homework will take a whole week to do. 30 Second Challenge:
Write down a sentence to describe how long school assemblies are... See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil You tell me.... Fact and Figures

Persuasive writing uses facts and figures to force you to believe something is true.
Facts and figures give you evidence that something is true.

Using the pronoun “you” pulls the reader in and gives them ownership over the argument.

For example: You might want to consider how much your time is worth. You have 15 minutes to work through the Persuasive Techniques Worksheet. Make sure you do the ACTIVITIES for all of our seven techniques below:
Facts and Figures
Rhetorical Questions
Exaggerated and Dramatic Language

1. What was the last thing that you tried to persuade someone to do?

2. What was the last thing that one of your parents/siblings/friends tried to persuade you to do? What words did they use?

Share with your seating partner when you're done. The ART of Persuasion, or, how to get what you want! Alliteration helps people remember slogans and makes words exciting.
