Persuasion is the act of making someone believe something. Today, your homework exercise is to write a “persuasive letter” to ask for something to change.
There are three main parts to a persuasive letter: statement of an opinion, support for the opinion, and closing.
Once you have chosen a topic, it simply needs to be written as an opinion statement. FOR EXAMPLE: Write “I think that homework should not be assigned on Reading Week” at the top of your page.
Next, come up with three good supportive reasons for your argument. Make sure your points clearly connect to your opinion statement.
You will need to write a closing by wrapping up what you have been writing about by re-stating your opinion.
Have fun and be creative!
