Project #71903 - Discussion Question

3 PARAGRAPHS

Greetings, Class:

I can tell from your posts that you are starting to really understand the idea of writing with the PIE technique.  It is very helpful to learn how to use that  technique in your academic writing.  It is also a good technique to use in the real world.  The method is exactly the same as what we would see in a court of law:  Both sides take a stand ...  a strong one based on an opinion.  Someone is guilty or innocent -- and the two sides must argue so well that either the judge or the jury agrees.  Our audiences are much like those judges and those juries.  When we write, people are going to  decide whether they agree with us, believe us, like us, and/or will listen to us enough to act upon what we say.  Having good evidence to support our opinions helps.  The last step, though, is explaining how that evidence proves our point.  Without making that connection clear to the readers, we leave them room to misunderstand us.

In the world of professional writing, tiny things can hurt us.  One wrong word can determine our fate. One area that comes up a lot is in the way we handle  greetings and closings for email messages.  I would like you to look at the following website:  http://excelle.monster.com/news/articles/5175-the-best-email-greetings-and-sign-offs

Let us know what you think about  how the writers have delivered their seemingly innocent greetings and sign-offs.  Can you find any other funny examples of these things?  Discuss why they work or don't work in a professional setting.

Another area that can be dangerous ground is in our auto-replies.  The ones listed here are quite  extreme.  I thought you might enjoy them.  Would you dare use them in a work environment?  Why or why not?

Here is one company that has put together some creative suggestions as to how to deliver routine messages in a creative way.  Do you like any of the ideas listed?  Why?  Which ones would you use to deliver routine messages?

Please find some examples of positive and neutral routine messages that companies have used that employ the strategies discussed in our text.  Try to find some that are creative or interesting.  Why do they work or fail to work?  Discuss which strategies they used and how they are good or bad examples for us as professional writers.
