Hi, I was wondering if anyone can give me an example of what counts as a 'discussion text'.

It has to be something that relates to children but I'm struggling.

I know scientific papers are/ can be discussions but my mind has gone blank!

Thanks for any help!

Reasons for and against something.

Mans exploration of space
Rainforests and man's need for farmland
Capital punishment
Look at the newspaper for something suitable

Climate change and veganism go down well at my school. Celebrity. Consumerism.

Google AQA GCSE English Language. Look for specimens or past papers for Paper 2. These are all ‘viewpoint’ non fiction texts. If that’s a winner then just google for teaching resources where teachers have selected practice texts for the same exam.
It’s a key part of the curriculum (and after tackling those NF texts students then have to create their own viewpoint piece in a given topic).

Thanks so much for replying, some great suggestions and advice. I moved on to work on another section of text types so will go back to the discussion text section today.
Thanks again I really appreciate your help!
