The persuasive piece was written on the Clint Eastwood film Sully. The objective of this piece was to persuade a friend to watch the film after reading the piece. To write this piece I had to use different persuasive techniques to convey the message. When writing I tried to ensure the theme was consistent throughout the piece. I could have chosen to write more about a particular part of the movie but felt it would be unnecessary and would downgrade the overall piece. The piece needed to both tell the reader what the film was but also why they should watch
We recognise that Woolworths can take a more prominent role in the debates around sustainability. It is fair to say that Australian and New Zealand retailers have lagged behind companies in the United Kingdom and Europe. So we are committed not just to contributing to the debate but to taking specific, measurable actions to improve our performance. By virtue of our size, scale, and the complexity of our business, Woolworths is a significant player in the Australian and New Zealand economies. With that profile comes not only a responsibility to understand and manage our impacts, but also a tremendous opportunity to achieve lasting and beneficial change that extends beyond our own operations. We aim to move to a leadership position on sustainability.
What is a persuasive essay? Persuasive writing attempts to persuade the reader to change their belief or point of view to the one of the essay. Heather Meredith’s essay “The Death Penalty: Justice for None” is more persuasive than Edward Koch’s “Death and Justice: How Capital Punishment Affirms Life”. A strong essay must be clear on what it is claiming, have a strong use of pathos, and have a strong use of logos.

Thomas Jefferson’s writing of the Declaration of Independence became one of the most famous documents in American history. It was used to try to persuade the colonist and British monarchy to give the 13 colonies their independence. When trying to persuade the colonist he approaches “persuasive writing.” or a writing that tries to convince the reader that the writer’s opinion is correct through persuasive techniques and rhetorical devices. There are three types of persuasive techniques; logical, ethical, and emotional appeals and five types of rhetorical devices; rhetorical questions, repetition, parallelism, antithesis, and allusions.

She writes about how advertisements will help with school budget cuts, but it isn't that persuading. If you read the first letter carefully, you will see how he writes about how they would help, but that there are alternatives to raising money. The first letter has stronger points than the second letter. The tone in the first letter strengthens the argument, while the second letter, not so much.

The main points in chapter 3 section 3.1 and 3.2 was how rhetorical strategies make messages persuasive. Messages persuade through their angle of vision. The angle of vision causes a reader to see a subject from one perspective only-the writer's. Writers create an angle of vision through strategies such as the following: stating point of view directly, selecting some details while omitting others, choosing words or figures of speech with intended connotations, and creating emphasis or de-emphasis through sentence structure and organization. The angle of vision or the lens is persuasive because it controls what the reader sees. Unless readers are rhetorically savy, they can lose awareness that they are seeing the writer's subject matter through a lens that both reveals and conceals. Writer's use angle of vision to look at the subject from a certain location, or to use another metaphor, the writer wears a lens that colors or filters the topic in a certain way. The angle of vision, lens, or filter determines what part of a topic gets seen and what remains unseen, what gets included or excluded, and what gets emphasized or de-emphasized.
