  • 2. What I Learned One of the first things that I learned in the class, was how to properly write and submit a complaint letter, as we did for our Writing Assignment 1. Complaint letter example
  • 3. What I Learned Ctd. Writing a complaint letter, as well as any correspondence to any professional, should be persuasive, but should have a tone (Ch.4) that does not turn the reader off of the purpose of the document.
  • 4. What I Learned Ctd. I also learned about writing for a specific audience. It is clearly important that the people reading my documents feel that they are intended specifically for them to read.
  • 5. How I Learned Writing the complaint letter for Writing Assignment 1, as well as the topic for Writing Assignment 2 helped me to properly write to a target audience but in a professional manner. Professionalism is key to any great career. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3L- _Nbki0Q
  • 6. How I Learned Writing Assignment 2 helped me to learn about writing correctly to the specific audience. Sending book recommendations to an on-campus organization proved very useful!
  • 7. Why is it important? Knowing how to properly write in the professional world is significant because, to some people, it could prove your competency.
  • 8. Why is it Important? Ctd. The things I learned doing these assignments are also important because they can be used to impress superiors in the future, and also to prove myself in the professional world.
  • 9. The Future In the future I will use these skills in writing emails, resumes, memos, and other forms of correspondence to my superiors.
  • 10. The Future Ctd. These skills will also be important in corresponding with future teachers and professors. It seems that the more professional a student is with a teacher or mentor, the more seriously the teacher will take that student.
  • 11. The Future Ctd. In the future, I will always use these skills when corresponding with anyone really. My goal is to attain future career goals with the help of seeming professional over email, mail, fax, as well as in person.
