LC: To write a discussion text 

This week, you are going to be writing an independent discussion text. Today, you are going to write the first paragraph - the introduction. Each day you will get about an hour to write each section; please check your work carefully and actively proof read every sentence when you have written them. If you check your work carefully, there shouldn't be any mistakes with grammar, punctuation and spelling. 


The question for your discussion is:


Should Tutankhamun's tomb have been excavated?

In your introduction you need to give some background information. You could include the following:


  • where was it discovered
  • when it was discovered
  • who discovered it


You also need to state that there are many differing opinions about this historical event and these will be discussed in your writing.
