Writing Course Term 5: The Politician

Students now build on their rhetorical skills by becoming a budding politician seeking election. We will explore how to write persuasively, not only through our use of language techniques, but through consideration of the audience’s likely emotions and reactions to what we say. We will consider how to carefully structure our writing for maximum impact, and how to respond empathetically to those who disagree with us.

These tutorials are a blend of direct teaching and students writing with a focus on writing. Students receive live feedback on their work in tutorials.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion of extracts and model writing, and writing practice with live feedback from the tutor
  • Writing requirements – Students need to write during the lessons using online worksheets. Students write at their own pace and receive guidance and encouragement along the way.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
