  • Discussion Prompt:
What is your favorite pet?

  • Sample Student Response:
My name is Shane, and my favorite pet is a cat because they are independent, you do not have to take them for a walk, and they take care of the mice. They are better than fish because they can play with you.

  • Sample Agree Student Reply:
I agree with Shane. I would also like to add that cats are very playful. My cat likes to play with a ball of yarn and chase it around the house.

  • Sample Disagree Student Reply:
I agree with part of your posting, Shane. I support you on having a favorite pet, but I feel differently about cats. Let me explain why dogs are better than cats. I agree that having a cat saves you time because you do not have to walk it, but I enjoy walking my dog. Walking a dog takes you outside, lets you enjoy the fresh air, and gets you some exercise.
