writing communication

Instructions: In class, we discussed how the IDEAS model can be applied to solve real-world problems. For this activity, you will apply each step of the IDEAS model to plan out how to solve a common problem that college students face. Refer to class notes from Unit 3 to help you complete this activity.

Visit http://garfieldgates.hubpages.com/hub/common-problems-for-college-students and read the summary of 10 problems that college students commonly face.

  1. Identify and define each step of the IDEAS model in your own words
  1. Choose a problem that you are currently facing that fits with one of the 10 problems addressed in the article and describe it in 2-3 sentences.
  1. Discuss what action(s) you would take for each step of the IDEAS model in order to solve this problem.

This activity must be submitted to eCampus as either a text submission or an attached file no later than 11:59pm.

 

Writing – communication

I need help with a Writing question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Taking into consideration the “Writing Style” chapter you just read, reflect on the reading and your own experience with professional writing. Please submit your response to the following:

  1. What is the most useful thing you learned in the “Writing Style” chapter and how will you use it in your own writing?
  2. What does the word “concision” mean to you and why is it so important in professional writing? Do you have a strategy (or are you developing one) for ensuring that your own writing is concise?
  3. Consider your own writing style in professional correspondence (i.e., emails for school or work, or other professional writing tasks you do on the job). How would you characterize your style. Considering what you have learned, do you think it is appropriate. How could your style be improved?
