The Art of Persuasion

The Art of Persuasion


Strong communication skills are essential for any ambitious student, no matter their career path. With Ms Kait’s guidance, students will have the opportunity to choose one side of an argument and develop the skills to convince the reader of their perspective. The student will gain the ability to write persuasive compositions permeated with arguments with clear reasons, relevant evidence, as well as:


  • Introductions


  • Acknowledgements of opposing claims


  • Logical and orderly presentation of reasons and evidence


  • Graphics, special formatting, and multimedia, when appropriate


  • Support of the claims through the use of evidence from credible sources


  • A concluding sentence or paragraph that supports the argument made


  • A formal tone and style
