WRITING ASSIGNMENTS FOR THE WWW PORTFOLIO


1. EVALUATIVE MEMO

From your analysis of five WWW sites, generate a concise 2 page (single spaced) summary that explains your conclusions about three categories: Use these three points as the major headings to organize your response. Be sure to include a descriptive title and addresses for each of the web sites you've analyzed. Use a memo format, addressed to me. (See Chpt. 12--esp. 264-83--for memo report format)

Be sure to include a set of context notes for this memo. That is, analyze the writing task, potential readers other than me, and your strategies for response. I expect these notes to be about a page in length.


2. SUPPLEMENT MEMO

Write a concise 2 page supplement to Chapter 4 of Thill and Bovee's Excellence in Business Communication (3rd ed.), to follow page 74. You want to convey two types of information: Use a memo format, addressed to me. (See Chpt. 12--esp. 264-83--for memo report format.) You may want to consult a FAQ sheet (Frequently Asked Questions) to gather information about the WWW.

Be sure to include a set of context notes for this memo. That is, analyze the writing task and your strategies for response. In this case, I want you to tell me what assumptions you are making about who will read the textbook, and how you are using language and format to reach that audience. I expect these notes to be about a page in length.

DEADLINE

Print a hard copy of the supplement memo AND the evaluative memo and turn both in by 11:30 on the date specified on the syllabus. Include any rough drafts and context notes for each memo.
