Taking a Stand: Writing about Inalienable Rights

Finally, take one of your topic sentences, your sentences about the three rights you believe we should have (including details), and another of your topic sentences as a conclusion, and send them to me as a comment. This should make a 7-8 sentence paragraph.


Today, I want you to write four topic sentences for the rights you think everyone should have. The sentences should be:

1. Simple Declarative;
Example: There are some rights everyone should have.

2. Number Statement;
Example: Here are some among the many rights we should all have.

3. Question;
Example: Why are some rights so important?

4. Situation/Stance;
Example: If we are to be free, there are some rights that must be guaranteed.

Please Reply to your last comment to send this to me.

Taking a Stand: What are Rights?

Right: The moral or legal entitlement or ability to have or obtain something or to act in a certain way. Something you may do if you choose.

Please share one right you think children should have. It could be a right you already know you have, or one you think children should have, but don’t.
