Literacy: Functional English - reading, GCSE A2 Analyse, Rt/L1.2, Rt/L2.2, Rt/L2.4

ESOL: ESOL Rt/L1.2a, ESOL Rt/L2.2a, ESOL Rt/L2.4a

Level: L1, L2, GCSE L1-5

Resource type: Cut and stick, Reading comprehension

I created this activity for my ESOL students but it would also work well for Functional English.
The idea is taken from Laura Jeffrey Kiiza’s text types mind map drag and drop activity (L1) – see link below under See also.

Students first use Laura’s drag and drop activity on the computer (this covers both persuasive and instructive texts).
I then gave them the features of persuasive texts (see page 1 of resource) which they cut up and stick on the text on page 2 (or they could simply annotate the text using coloured pens etc.).

Sample answers are on page 3.
