You are trying to decide whether to take an after-school job during the school year. The money would be helpful, but you would have to give up something else to find time to work.
Write a letter to your parent(s) persuading them that you should or should not get a job during high school.
As you write, remember your letter will be scored based on how well you:
develop a multi-paragraph response to the assigned topic that clearly communicates your thesis to the audience.
support your thesis with meaningful reasons and sufficient details.
address the readers/’ concerns, opposing viewpoint, or counterarguments.
organize your essay in a clear and logical manner, including an introduction, body, and conclusion.
use well-structured sentences and language that are appropriate for your audience.
edit your work to conform to the conventions of standard American English.
