Name one way your plan will help solve the cheating problem. Example: Use an anecdote to prove how your plan will work.

Paragraph 3 Opinion and Reason: (Answer to counterclaims) = Explain why the other solutions are not as strong as yours: Example: Use an anecdote to prove how other plans cannot work as well as yours.

Example: This example was created to keep you from coping me. You must use a REAL solution Paragraph 1 Opinion and Reason: What will solve our bulling problem? Name one way your plan will help solve the bulling

problem. Using magical creatures, such as evil leprechauns, as campus supervisors will cut down the bullying. Students will be too frightened of being turned into pots of gold to misbehave .

Example: Use an anecdote to prove how your plan will work.

For example, right now bullies are taken to the counseling office where they meet with the counselor and talk about why they feel they have to pick on others. Similarly, they can also be sent to the dean where they receive a punishment; they will then blame their victim, return to school, and continue to torment others. If evil leprechauns were in charge bullies would be turned into gold immediately.

Fact: COMMON SENSE

As an inanimate object the bullies could no longer torture their victims, and as an added bonus schools would have more money for their budget.

Transition Sentence: Remember to start with your current topic and end in the other.

While leprechauns will help with the bulling problem at THS, the real motivators to deter this problem will be the werewolves.
