Advanced Composition: The Audience
May 18, 2000

One little word, "audience," means so much. Our subject (and topic), our method, our organization all depend on who is going to read our final product. Right now, you probably write for the teacher. To do so, you have some knowledge of him or her and use this information to help create your work. Tonight we will learn more and practice writing for two different audiences.

Considering Audience

bulletWhat are your audience's interests? 
bulletWhat does your audience know? and not know? 
bulletWhat might your audience want to know? 
bulletWhat do you know that might interest your audience? 
bulletHow will you write for your audience?


Describe a unique cultural event (such as a celebration that is done only by those who share your culture). First, describe this celebration for someone who shares your culture (write about 50 words). Then, describe the same celebration for your teacher who you assume does not know about this celebration. (another 50 words) Teacher Writing sample.

Even a birthday celebration varies according to culture.
