Writing Ideas

  • Write a short persuasive speech, giving emotive reasons, on why the bull shark should be afforded respect and left in the lake at the golf club.
  • What if the bull shark could talk? Write a fictional viewpoint piece that uses figurative language. What does the bull shark think? Does he like being on the golf course? Have his experiences changed how he responds to life? Does the behaviour of others make him aggressive?
  • You have been invited to the golf course to interview management and some of the players. Your challenge is to write a report based on the facts you hear. Remember to write in the third person and use technical language where possible.
