Prepare your students for Area of Study 2 success with Analysing and Presenting Argument - a new edition of the phenomenally successful Using Language to Persuade by market-leading author Ryan Johnstone. Ideally used at Year 11 and carried into Year 12, Analysing and Presenting Argument is a hybrid write-in workbook / textbook that gradually introduces students to the skills required to develop arguments, persuasive language (written, spoken and visual), reading persuasive texts (including print, digital, spoken and multimodal media), argument analysis (presenting and critiquing) and proficiency in oral presentations. This text assists teachers and students further by providing up-to-date sources for analysis, templates, step-by-step guides, annotated sample responses, practice SAC and examination tasks, and a metalanguage glossary. 

Analysing and Presenting Argument is supplemented digitally with obook and assess, including further support for EAL students.
