  1. This piece of persuasive writing is structured properly, I would suggest putting in longer arguments because the introduction is longer then all the other arguments, and the conclusion is very short because he hasn’t restated his opinion in another way. The emotive words that have been used were fascinating and disgustingly, but I have noticed a lot of synonyms, which he thought about well. The author has used a bit of a hook-in, he has used a question and stating his opinion, but put in more then he’s supposed to. I think that the strongest argument is number 2 because that is the argument with the most emotive words and description. The author could improve on more emotive words, a bit more description for each argument.

  2. I think that the person structured the piece properly because it has a really long paragraph about his opinion. The hook in is a really big paragraph and it is only on one of their arguments. I think that the person should have made the other arguments a bit more bigger because the hook in is bigger than the other arguments, the other arguments are supposed to be bigger than the hook in because the arguments are supposed to be expressing your thinking’s on three different reasons on your topic. I think that the persuasive piece is really amazing and that it needs more emotive words in the persuasive piece to describe the piece more. The author’s message is that graffiti should be allowed for people that have permission and for people that have a permit. I think that the author needs to add more emotional words into it because the piece needs to be more interesting for people to read. The two emotive words that have been used in the persuasive piece are fascinating and disgusting. The author has used a hook in that has one of his opinions on why graffiti should be allowed only for people with a permit. I think that the strongest argument in the piece is the second one because it is the only one that has emotive language and it is really descriptive. I think that the persuasive piece needs to add more emotive words because the second argument is the only argument that has emotive words that describe the persons thinking’s. I think the person needs to make the arguments bigger because the hook in is bigger than the other arguments and the arguments are supposed to be bigger than the hook in. I think that the conclusion need to be bigger because it is really small and the person hasn’t restated all their arguments and summed it all up into a paragraph.

  6. Have you seen the amazing graffiti in Melbourne? I believe that graffiti should be allowed every
    If you’re doing graffiti you have to be creative and know how to do it like a 3D picture you have to know where to put the shady parts, dark part, light parts and everything else and it makes the place where you are going to a better place instead of a dark alley way it will be filled with art.
    When I do art I think of something that is unique like something that nobody has done in the world like my name, it’s German so I might do it in German letter if I know German or other to make it Unique, or the owner of the place face on the wall just make it unique.
    If you are doing graffiti you have to get a permit and then after that you could ask someone if you can graffiti whatever they want to do but nothing offence on their wall or fence and then if they allow you then do what you do with your graffiti but if they say no then just walk away and look at another place.
    I strongly believe that graffiti should allowed in any place because it describes the emotion.

    I think the introduction is really strong because it shows the authors opinion about the topic.

  8. This peice of writing is not structured correctly. Its introduction is to long, its longer than the middle paragraphs.The conclusion should also leave you somethig to think about, not just leave you with an opinion. The authors opinion is that graffiti should be legal. Some of the emotive words used were, love feel, passion, disgusting and interesting. I think the extra long introduction is a hook in, but it should have been shorter. I think the strongest argument is that graffiti is a form of expression.

  13. – Is this piece of writing structured correctly? Why/why not?
    I recon it is structured the right way he had an introduction, 3 arguments and a conclusion that restated his opinion but I think he could put the last sentence to make a paragraph with the 4th paragraph.

  14. I think this piece of writing was not structured properly because the introduction was more longer than the arguments when that is supposed to be the other way around also the conclusion was tiny and the author didn’t restate his opinion in another way. The authors opinion was to make graffiti illegal unless they had a permit to actually make them legalised to do graffiti. There were only two emotive words they were fascinating and disgustingly the author has used a bit of a hook-in they could’ve added more detail to, I think argument number two was the strongest argument because it had the most strongest words and it was the most detailed. The author could’ve made the conclusion longer, the arguments longer and he could’ve made the introduction longer than the arguments.

    Yes it is because if you read this piece of art work you can total tell that it has structure in it every detail you can recanios the there is so much to it .
