  Hello everyone, This is just an example of how to fill out your persuasive argument for your arguement/essay topic. This is just Mr. Bosma's topic example. 

You can write on it, print it, or copy down the 3 Main reason blocks on your own paper, tablet, phone etc.. Don't worry about the hook and thesis yet or the other perspectives. That will be next week.

Write in point form.  Focus on the observations and facts.  When that is complete you can start some researh on credible sites and jot those point form notes down too. Don't worry if there isn't any space left in the block just add. 

Email me at gerrit.bosma@nbed.nb.ca or go to my Teams site for your class if you have any questions. 

This is what to work on under Persuasive Essay from this week's explantion  note form, only for 3 Reasons blocks - observations, facts, stats. 

There is an Office web link on the right hand side of this Teacher Page under Pages.

Hello everyone, hope you had a nice weekend with your families. It was fantastic to meet with a lot you on Friday on Teams. We will see if more of us can’t meet up this coming Friday. Also, you can ask questions by posting on the Teams ongoing conversations too.

This week you can continue reading your own book, e book or audio book and take notes for a future book promo. I have included the website evaluation challenge again this week for those of you who haven’t had the chance to try yet.

In writing some new persuasive writing topic ideas are included as well as an explanation for you to begin planning your original essay/documentary idea you were working on before school closed. Under documents on this page is an Argument Organizer to start putting down your ideas (I realize many of you started this before we stopped). Mr. Bosma will be posting a video by Tuesday explaining this organizer and more this week. Make sure to check out Mrs. Hache's teacher page for Math too. 

 I will be contacting you this week, and if it isn't me, Mrs. Murphy will be contacting some of you. You can always email me and asking questions on my Teams page on Office 365 too.
