We have been working very hard in Class 3-205E to write persuasive speeches.  We started out learning how to persuade someone, finding a problem that needed fixing or something very important.  From there we learned various techniques to persuade our reader into believing that our problem needed solving or our idea was important.  After all the hard work of revising, editing, and publishing we celebrated our work with a publishing party!  The best part was we made our publishing party like an assembly, standing behind a podium to make our speeches!
