This activity is to assist students who are beginning to write persuasive pieces. The aim, is for students to state their opinion and then give a solid reason to support it. We aim for students to give a convincing reason- that will sway the reader, not simple answers such as 'because I enjoy it. etc. PRIOR to the activity- I often support this activity with a pre-activity where we look at a statement and sort reasons under into 'convincing reasons' and 'not convincing reasons'.
