Writing (warning I couldn't find the rest of my writing)

Purpose: To argue the case or a point of view,
to attempt to convince the reader.

Structure: Opening statement - introduce your point of view Arguments - point and evidence

Conclusion - repeat your point of view
Features: Present tense

Connectives (logical not time) - because, however, this shows, etc. 

Success Criteria: we will know we have achieved this when:
  • we can state our point of view clearly in the introduction and the conclusion
  • we can back each argument with relevant evidence and detail
  • our argument is mainly in the present tense
  • we use connectives which link our ideas within the argument: because, consequently, so, therefore
  • we can structure the argument using firstly, secondly, finally
  • we can use persuasive language
