Naplan currently requires students to compose a persuasive text; thus, students need to be familiar with persuasive techniques and appreciate the range of texts that are persuasive. Persuasive texts should never be taught in isolation; rather, design units of work that are focused conceptually on persuasion. These units should revisit the skills and knowledge that the students have already acquired and build on the depth of their understanding. The units must not prescriptively focus on the Naplan test; rather they should feature a diverse range of texts and focus on how and why persuasive techniques are employed so that students by responding to texts become confident creators of their own original texts. The ability to appreciate how they are being positioned is essential.

A year 7 program that could be used in term 1 has been attached.
