Argumentative text 8CD 1

Think of something that you don't like and would like to change. 
You need to find arguments for and against. You can talk to someone at home or google !  Here you can find an example of an argumentative text that a pupil year 7 has written: Refugees welcome?

- Does the headline draw your attention?
- Do you understand why the author has written this text? 
- Which is the author's point of view? 
- What arguments for and against his/her point of view are you able to find?
- Can you find any linking words ? Where and how has the author used them? 
- Can you find any words that express the author's feelings about the subject

After the spring break, you are going to write your own text. I don't want you to write at home, but please think of a subject that you would like to write about. You need to write at least one A4 page size 12. I want you to follow the structure of an argumentative text - take a look at the picture below. I also want you to include linking words and show me that you know how to use them.
