Excellence through partnership
As school is closed today, we would like you to work from home. One of your tasks is to write a balanced argument titled 'Should Schools Close When It Snows?'. THINK about all the learning and planning we have done in English for this unit and start by listing all the for and against arguments you can think of to support both sides of this argument. Then choose two of each and structure it into a balanced argument. It should be structured as follows:
Paragraph 1 - introduce the argument.
Paragraph 2 - 1st for argument (why schools should stay shut)
Paragraph 3 - 1st against argument (why should NOT shut)
Paragraph 4 - 2nd for argument (why schools should stay shut)
Paragraph 5 - 2nd against argument (why should NOT shut)
Paragraph 6 - conclusion (YOUR opinion on whether schools should close in snowy weather).
Bring it into school next week as we will go through them. Good luck!
Please use Reading Plus and message your teachers through this if you have any questions.
