L.O.: write a persuasive argument

Further to the most recent chapters (see Tuesday), you are going to write a persuasive argument about which Dad should go into space.


Use the table below to list the strengths and weakness of each of the Dads in the book: Eddie Xanadu; Samson One; Monsieur Martinet and Liam Digby.


Think about how their strengths would benefit the journey into space and how the weaknesses would inhibit or cause danger to the journey.

Now choose a Dad to "argue" in favour of taking by using their strengths and the others' weaknesses to support your candidate. Use the enclosed support documents to help.
