For this assignment, we will explore different types of readers, specifically in terms of their needs, values, and attitudes. You will need to identify/create three groups—a primary group, a secondary group, and a gatekeeper group. You can be creative in your group criteria, but your purpose should center on potential stakeholders for the mock business or organization you created for your portfolio (if you haven’t decided yet, now is the time).
Once you have your groups, create a Reader Analysis Chart (see pp. 21-22, & 37 of our textbook for examples).
You can make up your own demographic groups; the following list may help you develop some ideas (they are listed in no particular order):
Feel free to be creative. Remember, as it is with all technical writing tasks, you will need to take the time to edit and revise your work so it is clean, readable, informative, and attractive to your readers.
Once you have completed your Reader Analysis Chart, post it to the week one drop box.
