After reading the article, “Homework: Good or Bad?”, write a persuasive letter to me, Mrs. Rial, explaining how you feel about the topic of homework, at least three reasons for your beliefs, and text details that support your opinion. Remember a great lead and good closing, as well. I will be taking your thoughts on homework seriously and really considering how you, my students, feel about it. Remember to look back over your essay before you post, checking for capital letters, spelling errors, correct punctuation, etc. Then, ask a classmate to check your work, as well. Finally, click the Publish/Submit button. Try to respond to at least three others’ letters, as well.
