Writing 6/7 Term 3 week 6 Persuasive Essay outline

  • Your homework for this week was to develop an outline for your essay including your thesis/argument and the following format used to plan the body of your essay:
  • I Main topic A
  • supporting fact 1
  • Supporting fact 2
  • Supporting fact 3
  • II Main Topic B
  • Supporting fact 1
  • Supporting fact 2
  • Supporting fact 3
slide2

III Main Topic C

  • Supporting fact 1
  • Supporting fact 2
  • Supporting fact 3
  • This was to be followed by the basic skeleton of your concluding paragraph…a restatement of your argument in a different way plus a clincher or closing statement to either call your reader to action or leave them with something to think about.
  • Today we’ll spend some time working backwards from a completed essay and developing an outline, as well as practicing our outlining skills together as a group.

Following is an essay outline completed correctly as shown on the website I recommended using:

1. Motivator: There are some people who think that kids under 16 shouldn’t have their TV censored.

Thesis: TV can influence kids in how they behave and even dress….

Blueprint: …when things like violence and immoral behavior, for example, drug use, bad language, disrespect towards people groups are being watched by children, they may eventually start to think those behaviors are acceptable.

Introductory paragraph

There are some people who think that kids under 16 should have their TV censored. Some kids in our culture don’t have the discernment to know when to turn off the immoral and rude programs. When kids see on TV that drug use and disrespect towards people is taken lightly and joked around with, they won’t take it seriously and they might think it is ok to do.

 2. Topic sentence: Kids under 16 in my opinion should have their TV censored.

Specific support: Kids do terrible things sometimes because of TV influence.

 Specific support: TV can encourage bad behavior

 Specific support: Uncensored TV sometimes can introduce kids to things their parents either don’t want them to know about or watch.

Second body paragraph

Children under sixteen should have censored TV for safety reasons. Lots of times kids are reported on the news for bringing weapons to school, this usually happens because of the message through violent shows. When kids under sixteen have free reign over the TV it can put other kids in danger because of how killing is taken lightly in some programs.

4. Topic sentence: Scary or disturbing things stick in children’s brains.

Specific support: The brain works so that once you see something you can’t just erase it.

Specific support: So if something scary comes onto your show it can give a child nightmares or bad images.

Specific support: disturbing images can pop up any time without warning.

Third body paragraph

When a kid is watching TV an unexpected scene of something disturbing or scary can’t be erased from their minds. So when a freaky thing pops out without warning it is too late and the kid will either get nightmares or bad images. Rarely are there warnings for disturbing shows.

Reworded Thesis: Hopefully I have shown you how much uncensored TV can effect a child’s life.

Clincher: Although people say that TV doesn’t influences kids, the evidence is enough to show that it does.

Concluding paragraph

Hopefully I have shown you how TV that is uncensored can influence a child’s life. Also how that uncensored TV can be dangerous. But in all, although people may say that TV doesn’t influence kids, the evidence is enough to prove them wrong.

First body paragraph

In my opinion kids under sixteen should have their TV censored due to having bad behavior encouraged in shows. Some kids take the shows seriously and actually do some very terrible things like, smoking, robbing and even murder sometimes. Also TV can introduce children to things their parents aren’t ready for them to learn yet.

 3.Topic sentence: 16 and under should have censored TV for safety.

 Specific support: Most kids that bring knives or guns to school got the idea from TV.

 Specific support: It puts other kids in danger when other kids around them are watching what ever they want.

 Specific support: Some TV shows encourage the thought of killing and that it is ok.

Second body paragraph

 Children under sixteen should have censored TV for safety reasons. Lots of times kids are reported on the news for bringing weapons to school, this usually happens because of the message through violent shows. When kids under sixteen have free reign over the TV it can put other kids in danger because of how killing is taken lightly in some programs.

4. Topic sentence: Scary or disturbing things stick in children’s brains.

 Specific support: The brain works so that once you see something you can’t just erase it.

 Specific support: So if something scary comes onto your show it can give a child nightmares or bad images.

 Specific support: disturbing images can pop up any time without warning.

Third body paragraph

When a kid is watching TV an unexpected scene of something disturbing or scary can’t be erased from their minds. So when a freaky thing pops out without warning it is too late and the kid will either get nightmares or bad images. Rarely are there warnings for disturbing shows.

Reworded Thesis: Hopefully I have shown you how much uncensored TV can effect a child’s life.

Clincher: Although people say that TV doesn’t influences kids, the evidence is enough to show that it does.

Concluding paragraph

Hopefully I have shown you how TV that is uncensored can influence a child’s life. Also how that uncensored TV can be dangerous. But in all, although people may say that TV doesn’t influence kids, the evidence is enough to prove them wrong.

Here’s another essay that will be fun to turn into an outline:

You are mistaken if you believe that I am incapable for caring for a pet dragon. I am fully capable of caring for a dragon.

I have proved myself responsible repeatedly. For example I wake myself at 6:00 am every Saturday to go swimming in the morning. I prepare my school equipment without anyone telling me to and I am never late for any tutoring, swim practice or school anymore. That proves I am responsible enough to care for a dragon.

Dragons are also easy to care for. They are intelligent, obedient and can find their own food. As they are smart, dragons can be trained in only a few months. Being obedient creatures, they will follow orders without hesitation. As they will find their own food, they are not expensive to feed.

Dragons are not dangerous to their masters. Dragons are also extremely loyal to their masters and will give their life for them. Dragons will also never harm their master on purpose. In fact dragons will follow orders good or ill.

Unlike tame puppies or kittens that require constant care, dragons are easy to train and are independent. Although this does not mean that I can ignore my dragon, it does mean that even with my busy schedule, I can take care of it. And I have shown that once I have committed to something, I will accomplish it.
