Because good writing is always a process, our persuasive
essay will be written in two parts: a first draft due this week and a final
draft due in week 6. Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length.
As you prepare, here are a few reminders for this week’s
In week 3 you posted a thesis for peer review. Use the
revised thesis, based on your classmates’ and teacher’s feedback as the basis
for your persuasive paper.
Use your sources to support your thesis. Research and
prepare the passages you will consider using. Remember to review methods of
paraphrasing, summarizing, and using direct quotations.
Prepare the body paragraphs by deciding where to place
supporting information. Remember, each paragraph of the paper should act to
build the momentum of the argument.
Apply pathos, logos, and ethos whenever possible.
Finally, remember that it’s okay if your ideas, opinions, or
sources change during process of writing this paper. Writing makes us think, and
it’s fine – even beneficial – to have our thoughts change as we express them on
this is my work on for this topic so far

Universal pre-k exists in Oklahoma, Florida, and, New York.
The United States ranks 26th in the world for the 4-year-olds enrolled in early
education programs, which is far behind other countries when it comes to
preschool participation. In some other countries, almost all four-year-olds are
in rolled in some preschool program. Nearly all states have some funding for
preschool but for low income families.
In 2012-2013 28 percent of the four-year-olds were enrolled in a
low-income preschool program. Some
small-scale studies show that children that attend preschool are less likely to
drop out of high school, get arrested, repeat grades, and require special
education services, making them think that government-sponsored preschool is
well worth the investment. Preschool needs to be available to all children not
just low income families or the disadvantages kids.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the California governor, signed
legislation to expanding preschool opportunities providing additional state
dollars for improving preschool facilities. Kids who attended preschool have a
better understanding of math skills, the alphabet, letter sounds, and are more
comfortable with words, and book concepts. They also have more sharing skills,
cleaning up skills and carpet time. Twelve states do not provide preschool
services what so ever. Oklahoma is the only state to offer publicly funded
preschool to 90 percent of child four years of age. The survey done in 1972,
shows that the group of children enrolled in the preschool program had a much
higher score on the mental tests than the group of children that attended the
child care program.

Mandatory preschool would require all kids to attend a
government based preschool, or could face penalties. The government would
provide tax dollars creating a universal preschool. The preschool would be for
everyone regardless of the family’s income and would be available for children
ages 2-5. Universal preschools would be taught by teachers with credential and
have low teacher-child ratios. The people for mandatory preschool see the
benefits, like having all children be kindergarten ready. Also, see it as an
advantage for the parents who both work outside the home. People against
mandatory preschool think parents should have the choice of teaching their
children on their own before kindergarten.

The evidence shows that children gain a lot from
preschool. “At preschool, they
become exposed to numbers, letters, and shapes. And, more important, they learn
how to socialize — get along with other children, share, contribute to circle
time,” says Parents advisor Kathleen McCartney. Your child will find out
how to strengthening socialization skills, compromise, be respectful of others,
and problem-solve. Preschool is a place where kids can play with their peers
and build confidence and self-worth. The teacher will play games to get the
kids to learn like rhyming games or matching games instead of just trying to
sit them down and repeat them to the children; they make it fun for the
children to learn.

Preschool forms a foundation that will help children succeed
in elementary school. Preschool is usually kids first structured setting it is
an opportunity for growth. A
high-quality early childhood education program will offer children both,
kindergarten ready and play time. Teacher builds a relationship with the
student making them trust an adult outside the family. Teachers can also help your
child to manage frustrations or anger while letting children work problems out
on their own. Children get to make a lot of choice on their own, like which
activity to do. Children get to help out in the classroom which gains them
self-worth and teaches them to take care of themselves.
Children who no not attend preschool are not ready for
kindergarten and have no understanding of a learning environment, to prepare
them preschool needs to be mandatory.
Replys on thesis statement
This is a great topic!
I can agree with this and bet you have a lot of ideas to put in your
essay about it. As a mom of 3 young
children who have been in preschool and on to kindergarten I have seen what a
benefit it is for them to be prepared. Its a major change for them to go from
being at home to going to a classroom environment all day with so many
expectations. It can be overwhelming for them and they can fall behind or have
to be held back and repeat kindergarten. I have seen that happen firsthand and
it can be hard. Good luck!
I think this is a great topic. I would look up the Abbott
Preschool Program. New Jersey made preschool legal starting at age 3. It might
be a good place to start.
Kelsey, this thesis
statement should work well for you as you develop your essay; it’s also has a
typo and a run on sentence so be sure to review the video in announcements,
which will show you how to fix run ons. (from the teacher)
