I can't believe we're having such beautiful weather. I hope the sun stays out for all of June!
In today's lesson, we started our next essay: the persuasion essay. We learned about the purpose and structure of a persuasion essay.
A persuasion essay gives the writer's opinion on a topic and the writer wants to convince the reader to support his/her position (either for or against something).
We also brainstormed a variety of topics that you can choose from for your topic. For this essay, you'll give your position (for or against) on a controversial topic.
We also learned about the different parts of an introduction for a persuasion essay:
b. general statements: information about both positions
c. thesis statement
You can choose from four different hooks:
d. interesting facts
