Audience Analysis Discussion
Skilled researchers, writers, and scholars know that an essential part of making an argument lies in knowing the context of your issue and in addressing specific audiences who share interest or stakes in your issue. Our first assignment of the course asks you to consider the important audiences who might be interested in one of our assigned readings. Leading up to this assignment, we will discuss these types of audiences and consider why each might find the reading interesting, informative, important, or relevant to modern society. Format The format of this essay will follow MLA guidelines for academic essays. A proper MLA heading and title must be included. The essay must be double-spaced, typed in Times New Roman font size 12, and formatted with 1 margins around the page. All paragraphs must be indented. Content This essay of three, double-spaced pages will include an introduction paragraph, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph. Each of the three body paragraphs will reflect on one type of audience who might be interested in the topics contained in the novel.
