Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The writing is very clear and ably supported by numerous models and lesson plans. Those who do not teach but are interested in persuasive writing can apply the concepts to themselves, so while aimed at teachers, others can gain considerable clarity about and learn new methods for applying persuasive writing. . . . This work is recommended for English teachers of English where persuasive writing is on the curriculum." - Australian Library Journal

"Although very brief, this guide offers an interesting overview and creative suggestions for the teaching and learning of persuasive writing." - ARBA
