For my unit 3 project, I want to inform people how different forms of media have influenced movements for a better change and how they can continue to help prepoll change in society. The audience that I want to inform are teenagers to young adults since they are the most vocal on what they want to see in society. I think that I’m going to use a news website styling because it’s the one that I’m the most comfortable with. I plan on first seeing how websites like the New York times fashion their post and start from there. I’m concerned about it not being as coordinated and readers having a hard time understanding what I’m trying to say.
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.
I’m Jackie Blain, and you can find me on our Slack workspace or via email DBlain@citytech.cuny.edu.

It’s good that you’re focusing on audience. Looking at different potential places to publish, or that might publish something like this, is a great next step. You do need to think about where teens/young adults get their news these days in terms of websites; that’s the real challenge here. But it’s a good start.
