This week we began persuasive writing. The challenge was to write an essay on.. Why There Should Not Be Homework or If There Should Be Homework! You all met the challenge with fantastic writing pieces. In fact, the students will get no homework from me for 1 week because of their great persuasive abilities. Those of you who convinced me there should be homework are getting a little extra! I'll be honest, there were not many of you who wished for more. I think we are off to a great start. What other topics would be fun to write about? What would you like to persuade someone about?
