Viewpoint writing: what is it?

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will begin to look at the features of viewpoint or discursive writing. Today we will begin with a statement - 'All sports should be fun, fair and open to everyone. It is the taking part not the winning that matters'. Then, we will have a look at a student response to see how someone else has tackled this statement and begin to understand the features of viewpoint writing.
