Learning Objective: I know writing is difficult. I struggle with it all the time, but you have to continue writing in order to improve--trust me! Dear, Mr. Wallace,
I know Jimmy and I should have been home at 9 o'clock, but we lost track of time. Please don't ground Jimmy for a month. We are always well behaved, and if Jimmy is grounded, I will have no one to spend time with me. I struggled a lot when I first started learning how to write, but practice makes perfect. In fact, it took me years to become a proficient writer. Also, I heard that professional writers struggle and are always revising their writings, so don't feel bad. I understand how stressful writing is, but once you write a really good piece of writing, you will be very pleased. I know I get really excited when I write a really great essay that includes cool ideas and connections. Jimmy and I have passed every PMA this semester and we're both Honor Roll students. We have also kept up with our chores. I enjoy hanging out with Jimmy, and I know he enjoys hanging out with me. Don't you think we deserve a little break? Now, think about your warm-up response:
