Writing Activity 8

Writing Activity 8

For the past 2 weeks, you have responded to the following prompt:

 

While some high schools offer art and music courses to their students, these courses are not always mandatory. Some teachers, students, and parents think that schools should emphasize traditional academic subjects like math and science, as those skills will help the students more in the future when they join the workforce. Others feel that requiring all high school students to take classes in music or the visual arts would teach equally valuable skills that the students may not learn otherwise, and would also help them do better in traditional academic subject areas. In your opinion, should art or music classes be mandatory for all high school students?

 

In your essay, take a position on this question. You may write about either one of the two points of view given, or you may present a different point of view on this question. Use specific reasons and examples to support your position.

 

You should have an introductory paragraph already written down that either supports or opposes this topic. This week, write a body paragraph explaining your first reason for either supporting or opposing this topic. You should write this paragraph on the same sheet of paper as your introductory paragraph from last week, NOT on your notes.
