Beau Backhaus English 1002 Ms. Bobbitt 3/23/2011 Short Write One The example of public literacy that I have chosen to asses is an older campaign magnet. The magnet focuses on Scott Walkers run for the Wisconsin Governor. This document was made available to college students in all of the resident halls surrounding the Marquette Campus. The magnet was also distributed at the restaurant’s that are listed on the magnet. The people that produced this magnet were probably people on the campaign board of Scott Walker. On the bottom of the magnet it even says “paid for by friends of Scott Walker, John Hiller, Treasurer”. I am guessing that this was produced large scale mass production on an industrial machine. Then the people on the campaign board took these magnets and distributed them by hand to the resident halls and the business listed. The purpose of this magnet was to get Scott Walkers name out there to the students of Marquette and the pizza shops customers.

With local literacy you want to connect with the people on their level so the tone of the piece is very casual and laid back. Scott Walker and pizza really do not go hand in hand; but pizza deal relate to students because they want to save money and Milwaukee has a very large voting population. Since the magnet deals with politics you would think that it would be persuasive but the overall piece does not have that feel. There is a link on the magnet that if you go to it, it makes you think about Scott Walkers ideals....
