Preparing to write
First of all, check:
- What sort of genre or format do you need to use?
- What is your intended audience?
- What is the purpose of this writing?
Here's an example of a good plan:
|GENRE||Information pack||Clear and easy to read|
|AUDIENCE||Students in my school||Tone needs to be suitable|
|PURPOSE||Offer advice||Do NOT persuade or argue|
|STYLE||Short, direct||Use lots of bullet points|
Genre → information pack → clear and easy to read
Audience → students in my school → tone needs to be suitable
Purpose → offer advice → do NOT persuade or argue
