Different parts of a DiDA project need to be written in different styles such as persuasive, informative and instructive writing. The style should depend on the audience and purpose.

Persuasive writing

an old fashioned advert for puff pastry

Your project may include an advert or a report with the aim of persuading its audience. Persuasive text encourages the reader to do something:

  • an advert persuades people to buy something
  • a persuasive report would sway people to believe a viewpoint

Persuasive texts use:

  • repeated words
  • text in capital letters
  • rhetorical questions (questions that do not need an answer)
  • a one-sided argument
