Due: Thursday, 11th June
Following your Dartmouth Tourist Town debate, turn your three points into a Formal Letter, in which you attempt to communicate three transformative things to the Town Councillors, that Dartmouth needs, in order to become a vibrant, attractive town for tourist, young people and other residents alike (e.g. like the recent ‘Indoor Pool’ debate).
Vocabulary – Can you transform vocabulary in your initial three points, into vocabulary more suitable for (‘distinguished’!) members of the Town Council? Remember, this needs to be respectful and formal.
Connectives – How can you link your points/ideas? Can you use discourse markers (‘paragraph connectives’ – e.g. Firstly; Furthermore etc.) to connect paragraphs, in a more ‘discursive’ (progressing from one point to another) essay?
Openers – How will you use strong openers, to engage the reader? Can you use any rhetorical/persuasive devices as we looked at during speech-writing?
Punctuation – Commas and full stops are a must. However, can you use higher level punctuation, like: colons; semi-colons; a dash; ellipsis; or brackets?
