Transcript of Information and Persuasion

Informative Compare and Contrast Persuasive ? Like any crime, graffiti should be punishable Graffiti art should be taught at the community center to pull in kids. The History of Graffiti Laws about Graffiti ? Article A Article B Bell Work: Level Thirty
Daily Proofread 10 errors Informative and Persuasive Writing Lesson Objective I will be able to
compare and contrast
informative and persuasive
writing to determine purpose. Supporting Detail One Supporting Detail Three Supporting Detail Two Main Idea:
Illegal activity continues to darken the reputation of credible graffiti artists. http://www.goodgraffiti.org/ The word, "graffiti" originates from a Greek term meaning, "to write" which illustrates its initial purpose of communication. There is a thin line between graffiti as art and graffiti as vandalism. Sadly, the people who push the limits and break the law are ruining the commercial chances that exist for artists that take the right path. Despite the rising value recognized in many forms of graffiti, street gangs and illegal activity continually darken its reputation. "The Struggle Graffiti Artists Face" What else can be explained about this topic? "Support Local Graffiti Artists" Main Idea: The city should provide
local graffiti artists with a sanctioned art wall to lower crime rates. Supporting Detail One Supporting Detail Two Supporting Detail Three The community will change their mind about graffiti if they offer artists a public art wall to decorate. Once every six months the artists will clear the wall to keep an open canvas. If vandalism crime rates do not go down in the first year, the organization for urban art will reimburse all the money that the city spent on the wall. What else can you persuade someone to do or think about this topic? Compare and contrast two articles by summarizing their purpose (m.i./s.d.): to persuade or to inform. D.O.L. Other Examples Writer Four Is now Writer One Other Examples http://www.laculturecritique.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Banksy-graffiti-quote.jpg "Grafiti is 1 of the few tools available if you has close to nothing.
