We have just finished reading a novel called ¨Long Walk to Water." In my opinion is was a really good

book. It told a story of a global catastrophe that is still effecting the world today. The novel was inspirational

and emotional. The story was very detailed in describing the journey of lost boys, and struggles within poor

villages in Africa. Overall, the book was really good and the author did a great job writing Nya and Salva's

story

Argument Hooks!

In class we were assigned to write an argument. For this assignment I have to create a hook for the

beginning of the article. I am going to write four different types of hooks. These will include; an 

anecdote; a rhetorical question; a surprising fact; and a quote. First, you will need to know my claim.

My claim is that we should send humans into space! Please let me know which one you think is best!

1. Rhetorical Question: Have you ever wanted to travel into outer space, and explore all of its mysteries? 

2. Anecdote: Charlie is sitting in science class. Today their class is learning about outer space. Charlie

has always wanted to an astronaut, and he plans on going to college to be one. It's five years later and

Charlie is heading for college, but he hears on the news the government has prohibited any human to

go into outer space. Charlie is devastated and decides he will not go to college at all.

3. Surprising Fact: Did you know Nasa has launched more than 132 successful missions into outer space.

4. "I'm coming in..... and it was the saddest moment of my life." -Edward Higgins White

We Should Send Astronauts Into Space!

My argument topic is that we should send astronauts into space.

My job in writing this article is to positively promote send astronauts into space.

I already know that this job is difficult.

Some people may think they cannot do, but they train their whole lives for this event.

Other information that I need to find out is why they would need to go to space, and how does it

benefit our lives on Earth.

Hello World!

My name is Kaitlyn! I have no idea what a blog is, but I am very excited for this project.

My teacher wants us to use this to be able to have group discussions within our class.

Honestly, I have no idea what I would even write about.

I haven't heard of a blog, but I have heard of a vlog.

They seem the same, but I believe a blog is more professional.

Our teacher would like us to write a least once a week.

This project should be very good for our writing skills, so I am very excited.
