    Im guessing this is original writing? (creative writing)

    What board are you studying?

    For my AS eng language coursework I did one piece to entertain, and one piece to inform.

    The entertaining piece was a piece about life, from the POV of an acerbic misanthropy, the inform, was an album review, the subsidary purpose was persuade.

    The exam board I'm studying require 2 pieces, and 2 commentarys on those pieces, both pieces must be aimed at different audiences and must be from a different writing style.

    So.. writing styles:

    Inform
    Persuade
    Entertain
    Instruct

    I think suggestions are stupid., good writing has to be something your interested in!

    Possible ideas though:

    Inform - facts - articles, reviews, letters
    Persuade - persuasive - articles possibly on opinion, or things which cause arguements in the real world (abortion, euthanasia blah blah blah), letters
    Entertain - poem, lyrics, storys
    Instruct - 'how to'

    Hope I've helped!

    For my english coursework i did:

    Reading: a magazine article on 'why women love to shop' which was to entertain

    Listening: a speech on celebrities eg. christina and how they are portrayed in the media which was to persuade.

    so go for something that interests you and it makes it a lot easier to do, e.g. my friend who was learning to drive then did a a3 poster on driving with revision tips, laws, stuff to remember and general info about driving.

    I've recently finished mine and my teacher has so far said it is excellent -yay! I did:

    - a magazine feature about a competition to meet Busted and Blazin' Squad for young-ish teenagers (to persuade)
    - a newspaper article on factors contributing to rising obesity (to inform)
