I couldn’t understand why I had to read so much in the first week. However I fought through the readings and discovered that my preferred model of argumentative writing was the classical model. I also found I could understand the appeals of the Toulmin model and the Rogerian model. With this in mind I examined the essays in the reading clusters trying to identify the use of these models. This helped me to develop both as a writer and thinker because I had to try and understand where the writers where going with their arguments and the techniques they used to appeal to their readers.

The Children were responsive to me during my lesson they were eager to tell me what they knew and what they had learned the week before.
