Discursive/Argumentative writing

Discursive and Argumentative writing

Hello S4 students!

We have now read and talked about the layout and structure of Discursive and Argumentative essays. We went through the notes and you have examples you can read and analyse to help you as a guide to your own writing. So now it is your turn! Your assignment is to write a Discursive or an Argumentative essay on ONE of the following topics:

Capital Punishment

Shcool Uniform

Animal rights

Nuclear power as an alternative energy source

The importance of art in education


Observe that I am only proposing a list of topics, NOT a list of possible titles. I will NOT accept topics as titles for your essays.

You MUST formulate either a motion or a statement in relation to the topics, e.g. «The city should open a public hospital for pets», (as a statement for an argumentative essay), or «Is Nuclear Power our best option in the search for alternative energy sources?» (as a proposition for a discursive essay)

Remember to use the viewpoints (historical, social, economic, moral, religious, logical, etc. any viewpoint that helps you organize your ideas)

TURN IN DATE IS 18/09. That means, our next class, which is in 12 days’ time.

The impossible – Tsunami scene description

What happened in this scene? Think about the descriptive language from the notes on Wordbuilder. Pay attention to the sounds, the shapes, the movement. Remember to be generous with your language! Don’t forget that feeling of mounting suspense. You have one week to leave your comment. 3-4 sentences.
