Justifying an argument.

Justifying an argument
WALT: justify our ideas using conjunctions

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? I think that B is stronger because B has said that school
uniforms should be banned, because uniforms cost way to much and they put a lot of pressure on the
student’s caregivers.

What vocabulary do the authors use that you would like to steal? caregivers,expensive, benefit

What did you like about the paragraphs? I liked the way they were friendly arguing and how they both
shared their own opinion about if we should have uniforms or if we shouldn’t have uniforms.

What do you think the authors could improve on? I think they should share more information about
the uniforms and they could improve on making nice uniforms for other student’s to ware.
