part 3

After reading Chapter 3 in The Allyn and Bacon Guide to Writing, do the brief writing project “Two Messages for Different Purposes, Audience, and Genres” at the end of the chapter, which I’ve copied below here as well. Submit your responses here as a text entry or file upload. Additional, share your responses in the Discussion section for your classmates to read.


The purpose of this brief write-to-learn assignment is to let you experience firsthand how rhetorical context influences a writer’s choices. The whole assignment, which has three parts, should not be more than two double-spaced pages long.

A Text Message to a Friend. Write a cell phone text message to a friend using the abbreviations, capitalization, and punctuation style typically used for text messages. Explain that you are going to miss Friday’s social event (movie, pizza night, dance, party) because you are flying home to see your sister’s new twin babies. Ask your friend about another time for a get-together. (Make up details as you need them.)

An E-Mail Message to a Professor. Compose an e-mail message to your professor explaining that you are going to miss Friday’s field trip because you are flying home to see your sister’s new twin babies. You are asking how you can make up for this missed field trip. (Use the same details as in item 1.) Create a subject line appropriate for this new context.

Reflection on the Two Messages. Using Items 1 and 2 as examples, explain to someone who has not read Chapter 3 of this text why a difference in your rhetorical context caused you to make different choices in these two messages. In your explanation, use the terms “purpose,” “audience,” and “genre.” Your goal is to teach your audience the meanings of these terms.

part 4

Learn about how to format your formal essays correctly using MLA format guidelines. Practice using MLA with Essay #1 since I will not grade you down for using it incorrectly with this first essay. I will, however, start to deduct points for not using MLA for both in-text and Works Cited reference page in Essay #2 and Essay #3.

You can find MLA guidelines online or in Allyn & Bacon Chapter 16 “Citing and Documenting Sources” that begins on page 332. Here are the sections you should read and learn how to use:

Skill 16.1: Cite and document sources using MLA style. 332
In-Text Citations in MLA Style 333
Works Cited List in MLA Style 335
MLA Citation Models 335
50 point exercise:

2. Describe the characteristics of a Works Cited page.
