The reading and forum assignments this week should also help you propose your article, as you read and discuss what it means to write for a public audience. Please read Understanding Rhetoric Issue 7 and They Say/I Say Chapters 7 & 8.
Using what you have learned from the readings (Understanding Rhetoric Issue 7 and They Say/I Say chapters 7 & 8) describe how writing for a public audience is fundamentally different than writing for an academic audience (like your professor and classmates). Use examples from the text as well as your own experiences to describe specific differences between writing for these two types of audiences. Respond to two peers.
