Your Pro / Con Essay

Write a Pro / Con essay using my essay from last week as a model (four paragraphs, roughly same length as mine). You may write about any debatable issue you are interested in. (Not abortion, however.)

What is a debatable issue? One that reasonable people might disagree about. Go ahead and look around on the web, if you’re not sure.

Begin by exploring a few different topics.  In your native language, list pro arguments their con counter arguments. Then list con arguments and their pro counter arguments.

After you have explored a few different topics, decide which one you have the most to say about, then write your essay.

You will write a first draft, then have a conference with me with next week or the week after. Please sign up for a conference time

Final drafts due (by mail AND print) August 1st.
