The Hook Continued.....

In my last post i introduced the hook of the argument. I will now continue by listing my possible hooks for my argument. 

Anecdote~ An anecdote is a very short story to help put the reader in the situation and visualize it. 

Imagine your in ELA class and the teacher is in the middle of a lesson. You are trying to listen and pay attention; your struggling, all you can think about is your rumbling starving. You remember your forgot to eat breakfast. The rest of the morning up until lunch you can't focus or think in any of your classes. You don't get your notes completed, you fail your pop quiz, and forget to copy your homework. Your morning is a train wreck.

A quote~ A thought provoking quoterelating to the topic of your essay

" Food is your brainpower!"

A Rhetorical Question~ Ask the reader a question to get there mind thinking about your topic

How are we as learners soposed to “reach our fullest potential,” which is stated in our mission statement, while our bodies have no energy?
