Last week, we posted our exclusive audio series on Power "Insider" Tips to Boost Secondary School Writing. It was a blast, and so many parents commented that they love it! However, they also asked for the transcript for the audio clips. 

Unfortunately, we don't have it. But what we can do is to put up the salient points together with the link to the clip again. 


The seventh and last tip in the series advised on the best way to cultivate or generate ideas for Argumentative Writing

Salient Points


1. The most common excuse given by many students for Argumentative Writing are that they don't know what to write or they don't have any ideas.

Argumentative Writing demands logical reasoning, which includes real-life reasoning. Contrary to what many think, this style of writing utilises the left side of the brain (or the logical brain) primarily.


2. To be adequately prepared, your child must be well-equipped with current affairs. But when so many things are happening, there are just too much to keep up with. 

Therefore, he can instead focus on certain high-frequency themes. These are 4 of them that came out during the national exams the most.

  1. Technology – most articles focus on the internet, social media, or mobile devices
  2. Environment
  3. Teenage experiences, or articles on our youth
  4. Singapore in general – common sub-topics include food, shopping, culture, traditions
