Persuasive Writing ~ Should We Raise the Titanic?


Last week, we wrote and edited our first persuasive writing paragraphs on the topic of raising the Titanic.  Our writing must include the following components:

  • a title
  • an introductory sentence
  • three supporting sentences (plus elaboration for an A grade)
  • a concluding sentence
  • proper grammar, punctuation and spelling
