    How did people find the retake today?

    I chose Text 1- The Butchers Shop and Text 9 - Why we all need to eat red meat.

    For Structure, I mentioned the change in turn to trochaic in line 9 to line 10, and the fact that a change in turn presents a question, in this case " what does the sheep say now" and this has the pointed irony that the sheep now can't say anything as its dead. Which creates a sorrowful tone, the reader then feels pathos for the animals, which persuades them to alter their views... . I spoke about Torode's short sentences which made it easy to read, therefore people will take in the points more and because of this will consider their views, which links to the purpose of persuading.

    Those were just a couple of points I made,what did you all choose? I'm not sure if butchers shop was a good pick as i told my teacher what i chose and she was like hmmm i probably would have gone for a more clear persuasive text:/ , however when i explained in more detail she said my points were good.
