Hi. Im in s4 studying N5 English and im struggling to find ideas for a discursive essay. Anyone got ideas. Im interested in health care, animals and technology. Thanks
Hi! I took N5 last year. I'd try and stay away from really commonly used topics like animal testing, euthanasia, abortion, school times, etc because your essay wont stand out so much. Judging by your interests a few ideas could be things like: Is enough being spent on healthcare? Should the centralisation of healthcare services stop? Should more drugs be put on the NHS? Are free prescriptions a good thing? Should zoos be purely for conservation? Are zoos/wildlife parks good for animals? What animals could be reintroduced to Scotland? How may climate change affect animals? Should young children be using so much technology? Should schools take more advantage of technology? Is a mobile phone a necessity nowadays?
Just a bunch of the top of my head - hope they help!
Thanks. These are some great ideas. I'm sure this will help alot. I think im going to write a list of argumentative topics and persuasive topics so i can do some research in both areas and focus on a couple i fell the most confident in and further research. Any advice?
