Analyzing Non-Academic Audiences
Some teachers realize that much professional writing for their students is not going to be academic writing. These profs assign papers that specifically ask students to write to non-academic audiences. For example, one professor in Resource Management asks students to write to city council members for one assignment.
How can you analyze other audiences to help you adapt your papers for their needs?
As we saw when we looked at professors as the main audience, asking questions is one of the best techniques for analyzing audience.
