Justifying an argument

Justifying an argument
WALT: justify our ideas using conjunctions

Check out the two paragraphs and then answer the questions below

Author A:
I strongly believe that students need school uniforms. Students need school uniforms because
they show people what school they go to. All of the students look tidy because they are in the same
school and its like free advertising because when people see the uniform they think of the school.
So yeah, school uniforms are good.

Author B:
I firmly believe that school uniforms should be banned. School uniforms are costly and they put
a lot of pressure on the student’s caregivers. Children need new school uniforms every time they
grow and change schools. With some items of clothing costing a hundred dollars or more,
the cost involved in buying a new school uniform is huge! It is particularly difficult for families
with two or more students, as it is hard enough to feed a large family let alone buy an expensive
school uniform every year for each child. School uniforms should be banned for the benefit of
parents everywhere!

Which argument do you think is stronger?  B

What vocabulary do the authors use that you would like to steal?
Expensive , difficult, particulary,

What did you like about the paragraphs?
I like that they were trying to save their money for food and clothes  uniforms a so dare that
u can’t really afford.

What do you think the authors could improve on?
On B it’s got more better words like banne

Highlight the signposts (topic sentences) the authors use in purple.

Highlight the conjunctions or connecting words (for, because, and, but…) that the authors use in
