Today I would like you to write a letter to Santa. Please make sure to use proper letter format. Also, don’t just ask for stuff. Let him know if you’ve been bad or good and some other news about you and your life. Don’t forget to ask him questions as well. Remember it’s not just about asking for an xbox or a iphone, ask for help for more than just you.
I’m looking forward to reading your letters.
We have been trying to learn how to justify our thinking. This is a very difficult thing to do. We as writers, debaters or even thinkers need to be able to defend our ideas. It is not enough to just cite evidence, we also need to show and prove how that evidence leaves little room for doubt in our thinking.
So as an activity, the students were asked to choose what they think is the best subject in school and defend their choice with a couple pieces of evidence, as well as justify their answer. They should’ve left little room for doubt or arguments against their thinking. If you can see holes in their arguments, or don’t agree, feel free to reply.
