Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

If you are trying to strengthen your argument and want to make a convincing case, then this class is for you! This class will focus on persuasive, opinion writing to enable students to express their viewpoints and arguments effectively. Students will be guided through how to use moral arguments (ethos), emotional arguments (pathos), and logical arguments (logos) to create convincing arguments. This class is great for Years 10 and 11 or for students who want to strengthen their arguments.
