We are currently in the Prewriting stage. Please answer the following questions by thinking about your topic that you selected and emailed me (if you have not, you need to ASAP):
Consider your particular topic (imagine that you are presenting this topic to a professional group or co-workers, not your instructor):
1. What is your purpose (in a nutshell)?
2. What type of audience would hear your topic if you were presenting to a professional audience (not your instructor)?
3. What would the audience probably already know about your topic?; Will their response be neutral, positive, or negative?
4. What techniques will you use to adapt to your audience?
