Based on my writing in unit 2, the overall gist was to spread awareness of the consequences in which we are living in today on climate change. Although the effects of climate change today might not be so drastic, this can very well change in a matter of years. My intended audience is young adults because we are the future. We are the ones who have to deal with the consequences of climate change. We have social media and other platforms to bring awareness to this sensitive subject. The genre in which I would like to present this would be a speech. For me, a well written and spoken speech always sticks with me, which is what I hope to present. First, I need to figure out how to not make my speech sound boring because majority of the time when people hear speeches, they automatically get bored like I do. My hopes are that I can deliver a very good speech in which it can stick to my audience and leave them thinking, “Climate change has to do be dealt with ASAP.” My worries are delivering a plain boring speech in which no one would understand the point of it.
ENG 1101 is about you getting more comfortable with your own process. You’ll look at tools and ideas about how language is used to communicate and persuade and even exclude. And you’ll be introduced to concepts like transfer, genre, and metacognition.
