This Week’s BTN Homework

This week’s BTN homework is a persuasive piece.

Have a look at this piece on The Seed Bank.

Your task is to write a persuasive piece – ‘”The Seed Bank is/is not a Waste of Money

You choose the side you want to argue on. Make sure you have an introduction and conclusion, and for each of your body paragraphs you give a reason backed up with evidence. Don’t forget to use those AFOREST techniques and lots of emotive language.
