12 INFORMATIVE WRITING The author’s goal is to inform the reader with topics that are usually real or contain facts. Examples: newspapers, cookbooks, manuals, non-fiction books, etc. PERSUASIVE WRITING The author’s goal is to persuade the reader to agree with the author’s opinion. Examples: advertisements, commercials, newspaper editorials, etc. Next Back

13 Look at the picture and decide what its purpose is: Informing Persuading Back

14 In this picture, you see a man smoking uncontrollably, and therefore, burning his money. The image strongly suggests that smoking causes you to spend a lot of money that cannot be recovered. Shall we try again?

15 Great job! The image tries to persuade the reader or consumer that smoking is not good for your health or your pocket. Informing Persuading Now look at this next picture and select the right answer: What do you think this lady is doing?

16 Remember this: Persuading is a strong action. It usually means that someone is convinced that what they are selling or talking about is correct, like this man on the left. The lady in the picture is cooking and seems to be teaching someone. When you teach, you usually provide information to your listener. Look at it once again

17 The lady in the picture is showing someone how to cook. Maybe she’s a TV host who has a daily program, and her purpose is to inform. Learn more about persuasion Practice some more

18 Laura is always trying to talk her friends into going vegetarian. She quit eating meat a long time ago because she hates animal suffering. Her friends listen to her when she starts her lectures, but they beginning to get tired of her trying to _________________ them. inform persuade Back

19 Laura is a strong defender of vegetarianism, so she is probably very insisting when it comes to sharing her opinion with her friends. She’s sharing her point of view, or opinion. Review the question

20 That is correct! Laura is trying to persuade her friends of her opinion, which is against eating meat. Move on

21 Look for clues… When you persuade, you are convincing someone of your own ideas and opinions. It’s a good idea to look for clues that suggest that someone is only emitting a personal view. When you inform, you are presenting facts and information that DO NOT depend on your opinion. They are usually supported by some sort of evidence. Next Back

22 Read and decide: Which one is an opinion? Dogs are more social than cats. Dogs have more teeth than cats. Dogs are not as flexible in jumping as cats. Dogs are better pets than cats. Back A B C D

23 Oops! No. Here’s a tip for you: Even if you do not know whether the information contained in these options is true or not, you should try to identify which one emits a point of view, that is, an opinion or a judgment. Try again!

24 You nailed it! Yes! If I say that something is better than something else but do not justify it using evidence, it can be read as a personal opinion. Move on

25 Next Back Consider:  Define your audience  Help your audience relate to your topic  Appeal to your audience’s hearts as well as their minds  Become familiar with all sides of an issue  Find common ground with your audience  Predict counter arguments.  Appeal to the audience’s reason  Cite experts on the topic Avoid:  Don’t lecture or talk down to your audience  Don’t make threats or “bully” your reader  Don’t employ guilt trips  Be careful if using the second person “you”
