Use the excerpt from a letter to answer the prompt.

The current state of Castle Park is a disgrace to our community. Ten years ago, community groups came together to give our children a safe place to play. Today, the wooden structure rots, the chains on the swing set rust, and garbage covers the ground. The city government refuses to take responsibility for restoring the structure, yet it will not allow concerned citizens to make their own repairs. Our children deserve a safe, clean, functional play space. The city council’s inaction has turned a gem of the park system into yet another public junkyard.

In 3–5 sentences, identify and explain words in the letter that create a negative tone. Support your answer with details from the text.

Please give me some tips.

I don't want the answer just some tips to help find the answer (8th grade first test of the year)

  3. Rot, disgrace, and garbage. When something is rotting it is easily able to be broken, it is like decomposing. To say something is a disgrace means to say it is bad or not loved, in a lot of movies people say you are a disgrace to the family, which normally means that they did something to ruin the family's image. Garbage is another word for trash, it is mostly torn up paper or wrinkled paper, a lot of the time plastic and aluminum cans, or broken glass.

    Is that good?

  5. You have run-ons in there (aka comma splices). Remember what correct punctuation choices are for the ends of SENTENCES.

    Otherwise, it’s fine.
