This argumentative essay is written by one of my grade 6 students. The essay presents three reasons why people should wear their glasses. The essay follows the rules of a standard five-paragraph essay. There is a clear thesis statement with three subtopics, each body paragraph starts with a clear topic sentence, and clear transitions are applied effectively to join the paragraphs together. Finally, through the use of some literary devices, such as simile and hyperbole, the writer has given the essay a comic tone.
Wear Your Glasses
Many people in the world wear glasses because their eyesight is as bad as a rhino, which is not able to distinguish a human from a tree at 15 feet. These people can be nearsighted or farsighted. While some hate wearing glasses, others wear them all the time. In fact, glasses have become part of their faces just like their nose. Personally, when I first got my photochromic glasses, I really hated them, but now I cannot part with them. I like wearing them because they can conveniently be used as sunglasses, they can help me see clearly, and they can serve as a last resort eye protection when somebody as stupid as a kakapo starts throwing pieces of trash around.
I like wearing glasses because they can conveniently be used as sunglasses. Whenever I go out on a sunny day, before the sun makes me as blind as an ant, my photochromic glasses darken, which prevents that fiery ball of gas from blinding my eyes. The interesting thing about my glasses is that I do not have to get them out each time I go into the sun, and I do not need to take them off when I go into the shade as the lenses darken and lighten automatically.
Not only do my glasses provide protection from the sun, but also they can let me see clearly. Before I got my glasses, while reading the “eye-test-letter-poster-thingy,” all I saw was a billion black dots. In other words, all I got was a poor vision. But now that I have glasses, when I read the “eye-test-letter-poster-thingy,” the letters are much clearer.
Finally, glasses can serve as a last resort eye protection when somebody as stupid as an ostrich starts throwing little pieces of trash around. In class, my teacher has made a new seating plan, and unfortunately, she sat me next to two psycho girls, who always throw garbage around and get an occasional bull’s eye for my iris. Fortunately, now that I wear my glasses, what they throw at me just bounces off the lenses, which I only have to wash after class.
To sum up, I like wearing glasses because they can function as sunglasses, help me see very well, and serve as a last resort eye protection when somebody who doesn’t have a brain starts throwing little scraps of disgusting junk around. So people who need to wear glasses and hate them for any reason should think about the advantages of wearing glasses twice.
