Drafts, double-spaced, due on February 20. Final copy: February 23 Please remember to read the appropriate sections in your handbook and to use your handbook to revise and improve your letters. Use second page headers if your letter extends onto the second page. See especially introductions , persuasion , and tone . Use the cross-references as well. Grammar focus: agreement , all entries. See also pronouns. Persuasion depends on information, tone, and logical development. The more kinds of persuasive appeal you put into a letter, the more effective it may be. However, you need to remember that certain kinds of persuasion are more effective with some readers than with others. Your receiver’s position and personal qualities will help you determine the kinds of persuasive appeal that you want to use. You will use the same planning procedure as for the inquiry letter.
