In yesterday’s lesson, you wrote your introduction for your balanced argument.


Today, your task is to write the main body of your argument.


The main section of the argument is where you will write about the different points.

Use your plan from last Thursday’s lesson to help you to write your main body of the argument. Use your for and against points to help you organise your writing.

After the introduction, start a new paragraph with a ‘for’ argument.

Remember to write in the third person and use formal language.

On the next paragraph, write an opposing view from the ‘against’ column of your plan.

Continue this way until you have argued all your points in an equal, balanced way.

Remember to include conjunctions.


Remember the balanced argument is to debate if you think it would be a good idea for your family to sail around the world together.

Take your time and think about the vocabulary you are going to use.


To complete this task, you can either type up your work on a word document or you can write it in your exercise book. It would be a good idea to have it written under your introduction if you can.
