Dear Mom and Dad

posted Apr 10, 2014, 9:34 AM by
Your assignment is to write a persuasive paragraph in the form of a letter to your parent(s). In your paragraph, you will be asking mom and dad for something you really want. Please note: This needs to be a realistic request! Your paragraph should explain:
  • what exactly you're asking for;
  • why you want this item;
  • how will this item benefit you;
You will also need to address any arguments your parents might make against this request and express your counter-arguments.

This letter should be written in a Google Doc titled "[student #] Dear Mom and Dad" and should go in your Language Arts folder.
