No written homework however, you should revise your introduction for your persuasive essays. You have a write an introduction for the following topics: Should cellphone be banned in schools or Should the driving age be raised from 16 to 18 in the state of Illinois?

A strong introduction should include:

• An interesting grabber to get the reader’s attention. [quotation, rhetorical statement, anecdote, startling fact or statistic]
• Give a bit of background information about the situation you’re discussing.
• Finish with a thesis statement that states the main idea of the essay and clearly expresses your opinion.

I’ve already checked your thesis so include it at the end. Here is an example of a strong introduction for a persuasive essay

Topic: Should Science Camp be continued in schools:

“Nature is the best laboratory for learning about nature.” Mrs. Jacobson says this whenever she talks about science camp. For ten years, every seventh grader at Wadsworth Middle School has attended the three-day camp in May. Sixth graders spend a whole year looking forward to “their turn,” and eighth graders wish they could go again. Now science camp might be canceled because of budget cuts. Science camp is important to the students, and we must raise the money necessary to save it.
