Writer's Workshop 21.9


Imagine going to bed hungry everynight. Imagine waking up hungry knowing that there is no food. Imagine having to find food wherever you can, even in the rubbish bin. Imagine being forced to beg or steal just so you could eat.


We cannot truly understand what this is like. We have felt hungry from time to time, but we have never felt starvation.


What can we do to help?


Your writing assignment this week is to make a persuasive essay bringing awareness to the poverty problem and convincing others to share their time and resources in order to help the poor.
