MT2: Persuasive Texts

Yesterday we looked at a Pamphlet from the Labour Party. We decided that it was trying to convince us to vote for Labour. It gave 6 clear reasons why. Your first job is to finish identifying their key arguments and adding that to your graphic organiser. Be sure to identify their opinion statement, and call to action!

Below is a link to the National Party website. On this page, National is trying to convince you to vote for them.
1. Read this webpage (you don't need to click on all the thumbnails to read more - you can if you want to though!)
2. What reasons does National give to vote for them?
3. Are you convinced? Why? Why not?
4. Try to put some of NAtional's arguments onto a new graphic organiser (In your tray)

Here's the link:
