Becoming a good writer in middle school makes high school writing infinitely easier.
Argumentation is the name of the game. In today’s society, it’s all about how well you can convince others that you’re valuable and your ideas are valuable. The ability to convince others has never been as important as it is now as everybody seeks to influence people and create networks. This class will establish the little tips and tricks that many people use in order to do exactly that.
