You have the skills to think of quality arguments for BOTH sides of an argument. You can also discuss and supply supportive evidence to back up your arguments.
But, can you use a planning proforma template to clearly present your ideas well before you compose your draft? Today is your lucky day!
Read the annotated example and assist your teacher to enter the for/against arguments into the proforma displayed on the TV during your lesson. You may create additional supportive evidence that is not listed in the piece titled, Should Students Walk to School?
Demonstrate your skills by finally reading the piece titled, The Fast Food Proposal and completing your own planning proforma. Once again, you can add your creative flair by providing your own supportive evidence in dot points below. The text is there to assist you!
Happy planning and remember you are only planning! Dot points should be brief containing the main ideas – you can flesh it out with more description when you compose your draft later in the week!
The first day of school can be both very exciting and at the same time, a farewell to the freedom of summer holidays. Although the summer season is still upon us, so is the commencement of your final year in primary school. So get ready for Grade 6 guys because it will be the best year yet!
“Everybody uses words to express themselves. Except me. And I bet most people don’t realise the real power of words. But I do.
Thoughts need words. Words need a voice.
I love the smell of my mother’s hair after she washes it.
I love the feel of the scratchy stubble on my father’s face before he shaves.
But I’ve never been able to tell them”
Extract from ‘Out of My Mind’, page 15.
