We're not focusing on WHAT you say at the moment; rather, we're concentrating today on HOW you say it. Despite the strength or weakness of your opinion, you can still relate it in a INTELLIGENT, FORMAL manner. Do not be so lazy or casual in your tone. If you don't continually practice your formal writing every opportunity we have in class, then how can you ever improve?
Read the information on the link below and leave a comment (with your name) that compares and contrast the difference between FORMAL and INFORMAL writing. (Hint: TRY TO USE A FORMAL TONE)
INFORMAL VS FORMAL
Consider these questions in your comment:
1. What makes a piece of writing formal or informal?
2. What are some obvious "no-no's" of informal writing that we can avoid?
3. How can we turn informal writing into formal writing?
