Students design and write the text for a persuasive leaflet that explores the reasons why others should visit the Sanctuary, and why they should support the donkeys that live there.
This is an English writing resource that engages students with their visit to the IW Donkey Sanctuary. The resource task enables them to practise their thinking and organisation as well as their persuasive writing and artistic skills. Students are asked to create an persuasive leaflet, using their experiences at the Donkey Sanctuary as their stimulus material.
The task could be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are bearing this in mind when on their visit, focusing on the creative possibilities during their visit to the Donkey Sanctuary. Â„ It would be useful if the students have already revised some features of persuasive writing and the use of images in advertising.
Students need to be aware of the most engaging parts of the Donkey Sanctuary so they can refer to them later. They could make notes or take pictures.
Students will demonstrate their thinking and writing skills. They will show evidence of planning, creative thinking, as well as showing that they can use devices and make language choices to persuade.
