Something that I want to teach my audience about is what makes a serial killer. This is something that I want people to learn about because I feel like in today’s age people say things without taking it into consideration and you never know how that can negatively affect someone and I feel like a lot of serial killers’ history comes from the way that they were treated. The audience that this is targeted to is older generations because I feel like they say things without noticing how negatively it can affect someone and I also feel like this can be targeted to people who just like to learn more about crime. I think that the genre that I might use is a video probably because it’s the easiest. In order for me to get started I think I need to plan out what I’m gonna say so that I can draw whatever goes with my sentences. Something that I am worried about is that I might get lost in the topic or I might get a little bit confused on what I’m supposed to do.
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.

You’re definitely voicing the right concerns. A video really does need to be nailed down in terms of script and visuals before you do the actual recording. Crime is a very popular subject for video essays and podcasts these days, so that’s a good choice. The challenge is, as you say, in making sure it’s all planned out before you start — that will help you focus the language and information.
