1 There will be a journal check on Tomorrow be prepared! Journal # : 1.)What is a Persuasive Essay? 2.) What are positives & negatives of parades? List them. An essay that presents a point of view and a counter point of view with the intent to persuade or convince.

2 Definitions Issue a topic on which people hold different, and often strong, opinions

3 Just the Facts for Persuasive Compositions Topic Sentence/ Thesis Statement: - a sentence that states the topic of a composition and the writer’sopinion about the topic. IVF: identify the topic/ choose a verb/ finish the thought

4 Just the Facts for Persuasive Compositions Argument: - the writer’s presentation of reasons and evidence to prove the validity of the thesis

5 Just the Facts for Persuasive Compositions Counterargument: -the writer’s acknowledgement that other people may not share the same opinion

6 Just the Facts for Persuasive Compositions Transitions: -words or phrases that show how sentences or ideas connect to each other

7 Just the Facts for Persuasive Compositions Public voice: - a more formal use of the language than everyday speech, the language of business and news reporting; the opposite is private voice, the language between friends, often involving slang and incomplete sentences

8 Organization The persuasive composition has a specific organizational pattern: Thesis – Argument – Counterargument – Rebuttal – Conclusion

9 The Prompt What is the best sport for children to play? In this writing test you will write a persuasive essay to convince the reader of your position. Give convincing reasons that support your positions and address the concerns of those who would argue against your position.

10 Outline Thesis = Soccer is the ideal sport for children teaches teamwork --every position has a job --everyone must work together to win --physically smaller --not as athletic --work together well home school too intimidating for some learning teamwork necessary argument counter rebuttal Conclusion

11 Paragraph One:Thesis Hook + History+ Thesis Statement Hook- Parents often wonder what is the best sport for children to play. History/Background- Sports are an important part of growing up. Thesis-Although there are many sports, I believe soccer is an ideal sport for children

12 Transitions for argument: One reason First,

13 Expand Your Argument One reason is that soccer teaches teamwork. Each position has a specific job. Forwards have the responsibility of scoring goals. The fullbacks’ job is defense, and the halfbacks assist both forwards and fullbacks. Defense of the goal is the duty of the goalie. In order to win all must do their jobs well and rely on each other for help.

14 Transitions for counterargument: I will admit Certainly, Of course, I will concede Admittedly, Obviously,

15 Expand Your Counter Certainly, team sports can intimidate children. Some children may be physically smaller than others. Age group teams are meant to solve this problem, but it is not unusual to see large differences of height and weight in children of the same age. Others may not be as athletic as other team members. Children are particularly sensitive about how they compare to their peers. When they cannot run as fast as other team members or are not as agile, they fear ridicule

16 Transitions for rebuttal: However, On the other hand, Nevertheless, Conversely, Yet, Still,

17 Expand Your Rebuttal However, learning to work as part of a team is essential to success in many other areas. Children have to learn to cooperate both at school and home. In school students are expected to work together without conflict. Many teachers use cooperative groups to teach. At home children are expected to be part of the family team and help with chores that need to be done. When they are older, these children may have a job that requires teamwork. Only rarely does a person work in job that does not require working with others. Office workers have to work together to accomplish the tasks given to them. Construction workers have to be part of a team effort to finish buildings on time and on budget.

18 Soccer: An Ideal Sport for Children Sports are an important part of growing up. Parents often wonder what is the best sport for children to play. Although there are many sports, I believe soccer is an ideal sport for children. One reason is that soccer teaches teamwork. Each position has a specific job. Forwards have the responsibility of scoring goals. The fullbacks’ job is defense, and the halfbacks assist both forwards and fullbacks. Defense of the goal is the duty of the goalie. In order to win all must do their jobs well and rely on each other for help. Certainly, team sports can intimidate children. Some children may be physically smaller than others. Age group teams are meant to solve this problem, but it is not unusual to see large differences of height and weight in children of the same age. Others may not be as athletic as other team members. Children are particularly sensitive about how they compare to their peers. When they cannot run as fast as other team members or are not as agile, they fear ridicule.

Only rarely does a person work in job that does not require working with others. Office workers have to work together to accomplish the tasks given to them. Construction workers have to be part of a team effort to finish buildings on time and on budget. Therefore, I believe parents should encourage their children to play soccer. While some children may feel intimidated at the beginning, by learning to be part of a team, they will be preparing themselves for future success.

19 Evaluate A clear thesis statement? Obvious organization? Strong transitions? Specific examples & evidence? A memorable conclusion?

20 Closure What are the 5 parts of a persuasive essay? Thesis, argument, counter- argument, rebuttal, and conclusion Give examples of transitions for each part:

21 The Drama… 100s of Facebook comments about a local parade…

22 Susan Whitehead wrote on The Venice Scoop's timeline. 6:58am I just passed down W Venice Ave just for grins to see if the sectionals were still there (they were); All I have to say is that I found those sectionals to be a lot less offensive than the amount of garbage left on the street, not to mention what was strewn about by spectators. I found it saddening and disgusting. Granted the trash cans...were overflowing. But how hard is it to pick up after yourselves and take it with you if there's no place to dispose of it??? It's your garbage; you made it. People, stop being so damn lazy and take a little responsibility; the very least you can do. The orangizers and the city worked hard to put on a FREE family-oriented event, and this morning it looks like people just bundled up their garbage and left because that's exactly what they did. Lazy Joshua Cook Susan Whitehead in the time it took to write this post u xould have filled a trash bag. Stop complaining and make a differenceJoshua Cook 9 hours ago via mobile · Like · 89 hours agomobileLike8 Susan Whitehead Mr.Cook, I will say you can do the sameSusan Whitehead 9 hours ago via mobile · Like · 179 hours agomobileLike17 Julie Hurd Perhaps organize a volunteer group after the events, to help clean up.Julie Hurd 9 hours ago via mobile · Like · 39 hours agomobileLike3 Cheryl Capper Ambrose Just so everyone knows the Venice High School Girls weightlifting team is on their way to clean up trash. And I'm sure they aren't the only teenagers who volunteered. So by lunchtime the place should be looking great!!!Cheryl Capper Ambrose

23 Since today seems to be a parade discussion day...Does anyone know, and would like to share, proper flag etiquette in parades? I always stand ( and have taught my kids the same) when a group goes by carrying the American Flag. Is it also appropriate to stand when a float is "carrying" a flag? Parade controversy. I am not sure why it was a issue w the hospital, yet I saw another boat w a Santa From Would like to stay anonymous Venice Regional float was stopped at the beginning of the parade. Because there was a Santa on it. The gentleman that came up on the float to disrobe the Santa was very rude and unprofessional and uncalled for and in front. Very very disrespectful to all those children to disrobe Santa on a float at the beginning of the parade. We have a lot of new members and on our committee at the hospital… They did not have the rulebook of the parade and only an from Bob and Sue and nothing said to not have Santa in the parade. So very sad and unprofessional for all that Venice Regional does for this community.

24 Write a Persuasive Essay Many people are celebrating the holiday season with parades. You will write a persuasive essay to convince the reader of your position on parades. Give convincing reasons that support your positions and address the concerns of those who would argue against your position.
