Critical Writing Exercise

First read the general update written by April if you haven’t already. You will learn all about her experience of driving the support truck to the town of Croydon and having a hard time buying food from the store-owner!


Suggested learning activities: write a hypothesis of why you think the store owner wouldn’t sell April the goods she wanted, backing up your ideas with a reasoned argument. Consider influencing factors such as culture, remoteness of the town, community, economics etc.

For older classes: write a few paragraphs on the reasons why you think the store-owner in Croydon is in business at all? Do the same for a store local to you. Back up your ideas with a reasoned argument. Compare and contrast the two.
