Persuasive Writing ~ Should We Raise the Titanic?

Standard

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

Update at 3:10pm:  We just came from our technology lab, where we typed our persuasive writing paragraphs.   (Blue highlights indicate areas that need to be edited.)
