Tutor beth: business writing letter and invite
Part 1: (Part 1 length :1 page only)
Find a sample letter or memo on the Internet. In a memo to your instructor, discuss why you believe the letter is effective or ineffective. Discuss how the content, organization, style and design are effective/ineffective. Then make suggestions for improvement.
Part 2: (Part2 length: 2 pages with double spacing)
Find a document (or a reproduction of a document) that wascreated for a unique physical context. (For example, a poster displayed in a manufacturing facility or a sign displayed in a workplace might be impacted by the physical context.)
Write a memo to me explaining (1)Why physical context of use is an important consideration; (2)What accommodations have been incorporated (or should have been incorporated) into the document based on the physical context of use? (3) Discuss your findings in terms of the information you have read in Chapter 2.
Provide a copy (or a link) of the document that you studied.
Studies have shown that different fonts convey different tonesto readers.
Create a different invitation for each of the following occasions:
1. a wedding,
2. a child’s birthday party,
3.an art show reception at an art museum,
4. a Halloween party.
Find a font that conveys the tone that you believe is most
appropriate for the event. Make up any details such as date and time,
names, and locations. Include appropriate graphics. Choose colors that enhance the purpose of each document.
Fonts, design, graphics and information will be considered as you create documents that are appealing and “inviting.” Think about eliciting a positive reply.
