Audience and Purpose Go Hand In Hand

If you are trying to PERSUADE your parents to let you go to a dance, it’s going to look different than if you are trying to PERSUADE a friend to go to a dance


Parents

Parents

Mom and Dad-

There is a dance on Friday that I would really like to go to. Teachers and parents will be there to chaperone and so will the principals. This means I will be safe. Also, I think I have been doing a good job of not back talking to you. Please let me go!


Friend

Friend

Brosef-

You need to go to this dance because if you don’t, not only will you be a loser, but Dillon is probably going to hook up with your girl! You don’t want that, do you? Also, I heard there wasn’t going to be a lot of teachers there so…

Hey, man, I need to borrow twenty bucks. Okay? I have to buy this stupid book for my music class. It's about lullabies or something. I can't believe a book of lullabies is so expensive. And I can't believe my instructor is making us buy this book. I know. I should've used the twenty bucks I had yesterday to buy the book, but I forgot about it, and, besides, I really wanted that new CD. So, come on, be cool and lend me the money. I'll pay you back on my next payday

 As I prepared to send you my payment, I noticed an error in my monthly statement. You listed a charge against my credit card (account number 1234-5678-9123-4567) in the amount of $23.56 for a purchase at Wal-Mart twice. I made only one purchase at Wal-Mart for that amount not two.
