Choose two current news stories (from an appropriate genre such as newspaper, professional blog, magazine article, professional organization website, specialized professional publication, video, Twitter thread from a verified account, etc.) that engage with a topic of relevance to your field of study or discipline. The two examples you choose should be discussing the same topic.
Answer the following questions:
- Why is the topic discussed of interest to your field?
- How do scholars and practitioners in your field engage with the topic? How do you know?
Briefly compare the two examples:
- Are they aimed at the same audience? How do you know?
- Are there differences or similarities in how the sources use language, tone, organizational strategies? Focusing on these differences, how do those differences engage different audiences?
- Do the examples you are using attribute information to other sources? How do they attribute or give credit to other sources? What do you think that type of attribution practice says about the audience?
See previous task:
First, read the Advocacy Letter assignment so you gain an understanding of the goal we are working towards in the class.
What type of writing is common in your discipline or major? What types of documents are produced by professionals in your field? By academics in your discipline?
As a management information management major in the school of business, my common writing would be letters, memoranda, proposals, and reports. By academic discipline writing, my category would be in the applied field. In my business field, the documents that are produced by professionals are emails, letters, memoranda, social networking posts, resumes, business plans, business proposals, and business reports. Each of the documents in business focuses on specific information and has specific contexts.
What are some of the topics being discussed in your field?
There are a lot of topics that can be discussed in the business field. For example, in memoranda, there is the information discussed such as context, task, purpose, summary, background, etc. In the business plan, the topics are discussed such as executive summary, purpose, business description, market research, strategies, overview, etc. In the email and letter, it normally discussed problem solutions, a proper plan, business proposal, specific details, etc.
What kinds of issues in your field (or not in your field) do you think are important to advocate for and why? Who could you talk to, write to, etc. who could make changes to one or more of these issues?
In the business field, there are a lot of issues that are important to advocate to run a smooth transition. The most important issues would be about the improvement of accessories or technology, work environment, safety precaution, proper management, healthcare, privacy. These are the main issues or conflicts business places face nowadays. For example, when a business is on the run, proper management of the organization is important, otherwise, the whole organization will be a mess and there would be lots of chaos. Also, the work environment plays a very important role in modern business. For example, an organized, fair(no discrimination), benefits for employees, better communication with the management team, holiday pay, sick leave, those kinds of things make a great work environment, and run the business smoothly. To change or improve the issues, I would go to human resources or head/ general manager of the management team or head of the corporation/company because I believe they control most of those parts in a business.
