Read through all five scenarios in the Project 1: Document Series instructions. For each scenario, please write a PAD (Purpose, Audience, Design) Analysis by addressing the the following questions:
- What genres of communication (email/letter/memo) would you send to what audiences. For this exercise, try to use all three genres for each scenario.
- What is your rationale for choosing these genres of communication? Why would you write an email/letter/memo for the audience?
- What would your main purpose be in writing each document? Would you have any secondary concerns?
- What do you think your audience cares about most in each scenario? What evidence from the scenario do you have that suggests this?
- What are going to be the most important document or Design features for the different audiences? For example, a numbered list might be important for an employee who you want to complete a task, a simple subject line might be useful for someone outside of your company or professional area.
