22.01.20 Balanced arguments

We have been learning how to write a balanced argument (“discursive texts.”) The P7s have chosen a question to research so that they can present arguments for and against and then explain what they think.

The questions being written about include:

Should dogs be banned from parks?
Should school uniform be compulsory?
Should all children be entitled to pocket money?
Should children be limited to one hour’s access to the internet per day?

Sometimes it is difficult to find reliable evidence for both sides of the argument!
