WHAT IS WRITING TO ADVISE? Can you tell someone (how) to do something? Can you give advice to your friends and family? Can you make suggestions? E.g. may, might, can, could. THEN YOU CAN WRITE TO ADVISE!
HAVE A GO AS A CLASS Read the problem below based on the film !!! Dear Agony Aunt Annie, I really want to be a member of the T Birds! Wherever they go and whatever they do, people stop, take notice and listen. Nobody ever takes any notice of me. I really want to be cool and popular but when I start to dress differently or make jokes in class I either get teased or shouted at. When I asked the T Birds to let me be a gang member, they just laughed and walked off. Please give me advice on how I can transform myself and be accepted by them. Aaron
HOW SHOULD WE ADVISE HIM? When structuring your response, you should think about the following questions and try to give the sort of advice an agony aunt might provide. Often, an agony aunt will try to make someone feel happy in their own skin and boost a persons confidence. Think about and discuss in your groups: 1.Is it possible to advise someone on how to be cool or popular? If not, what advice can you give them instead? 2.Should Aaron keep on trying to transform himself? If so, should he have a makeover/buy some new clothes, start to copy the fashion of someone he likes, or do something else altogether? 3.Would being a gang member necessarily give Aaron the sense of power and support that he seems to want or might he find it elsewhere?
STOP! DONT WRITE YET! Now you have your task you are full of ideas...but STOP! Do not be tempted to start writing an answer.... First you must PLAN! URPOSEUDIENCE ANGUAGEAYOUT Brainstorm/make notes on ideas for responses in your groups too!
STOP! DONT WRITE YET! Now have a look at the checklist below. Think about how to use these features in your advice writing. 1.Make suggestions (may, could, might, can) 2.Give choices 3.Be encouraging and kind 4.Be understanding 5.Try and put yourself in Aarons position and show empathy 6.Be clear/specific
STOP! NOW GO!! Now that you have carefully planned your answer you can start writing. DONT FORGET! Remember the starter? Dont make silly mistakes just because you didnt proofread your work! Think about paragraphs, spellings, missing words. When youve finished ask yourself... How can I improve this writing even more?
