Editing our Persuasive Writing

Standard

Today, we wrote the first drafts of our persuasive writing piece.  The topic is Should We Raise the Titanic? To learn more about our assignment, click here.

Our writing must include the following:

  1. an opening sentence that states our position
  2. three examples and/or reasons that support our position
  3. a closing sentence

You can read three of our rough drafts to see how we edit and improve our writing for our final drafts.

  • Student 1 – argues in favor of raising the Titanic
  • Student 2 – argues against raising the Titanic
  • Student 3– argues in favor of raising the ship but not disturbing the passengers’ personal items

  1. Have you done poetry? I did it. It was hard. I had to do it three times but it was still fun. I just did it in September.
