Audience Matters

Depending on the audience: Using  readers to generate purposeful argumentative writing

Lesson Directions: Spend 7 minutes composing three brief notes about your weekend to the following readers

To my boss:

This weekend I spent working on my curriculum plans for next year.  I looked at many of the resources on the college board AP site to download curriculum guide information.  I also downloaded some curriculum guides, CCSS and Compass items for the schoolwiki.

To my boyfriend:

Let us not forget that “everyday that we go to work, we are interviewing for our jobs.”  This weekend I downloaded stuff for the school wiki: curriculum guides, CCSS and Compass resources.  I don’t want anyone to say that I am working toward the improvement of the school.

To my friend:

You know how I spent the weekennnnnd – working baby.  A good teacher’s job is NEVER DONE. I looked up some stuff for our school website so that everyone can find and use it.
