Argument hooks

I am making an argumentative essay, and i'm going to try out a few hooks to see if there any good.

My claim is that I believe violent toys don't make children violent.

To start off with my hooks I'm going to try is an anecdote.

As a young child Billy played with toy guns, fighting toys, and other violent themed toys. As Billy grew up he became a world known problem solver. In fact he was so good at problem solving he received a noble peace prize.

The next hook I will try is a surprising fact.

Did you know that studies show no link between playing with violent toys in childhood and aggression in adult hood.

Another hook ill use is a rhetorical question.

Kids play with a lot of toys based on violent themes, but does it really make them violent?

The last hook I'm going to use is a quote.

To be continued...

Argument Topic

For my argument topic I have chosen It doesn't matter if parents buy their children toys based on fighting and violence.

I picked this because from the kind of toys you get doesn't really matter, for example I've had quite a few batman toys and batman is sometimes pictured violent.

I think I would have to search some statistics to get information about this topic, and figure out exactly what kind of toys were talking about.

Hello World!

My name is Zach a seventh grader in middle school.

I am creating this blog because my teacher asked us to make one, and I don't really know what a blog is about so this will be interesting.

I think this will be door opening experience, and help me and my class with our writing.

I want to post once every two weeks and share some of my writing.

I hope this is exciting.
