Transcript

  • 1. Editorial Writing
  • 2. Editorial
    An article that states a person’s, or a newspaper’s, opinion on a particular issue. Basically, it is a persuasive essay on a researchable topic that has more than one view point.

    community, or the world

  • 6. What issues interest you?
  • 7. The INTRO of our Editorial
    “Fine arts are important in the curriculum because of what they do for learning,” stated Patty Taylor, arts consultant for the California State Department of Education.
    In other words, the arts, especially music, should be part of every school’s curriculum at every grade level.
    Music makes students smarter, gives children something positive to do, and builds self-confidence. Most students don’t have a chance to learn music outside of school, and everyone deserves that opportunity.

  • 8. The BODY of our Editorial
    The reasons why you are taking your standbecome
    the body paragraphs.
    Music makes students smarter.
    Music gives children something positive to do.
    Music builds self-confidence.
  • 9. The BODY needs Facts
    Support your arguments with facts and tell mores.
    Students would be much smarter if they had some music experience. 1They would improve their classroom skills, like paying attention, following directions, and participating without interrupting. People develop all these skills when they learn music.2 Musicians are also better in math, and they get higher S.A.T. scores. For instance, a study by the College Entrance Examination Board reported, “Students with 20 units of arts and music scored 128 points higher on the S.A.T. verbal and 118 points higher in math.”

  • 10. The CONCLUSION of our Editorial
    REASONS
    Once again, music is important because it can make children better students, give them something positive to do, and build their character.
    Unfortunately, the children who need music lessons the most usually don’t have access to them outside of school.
    That is why music should be offered in every single grade in every school.
