Discussion Question- White Paper

1. Describe a possible white paper for anexternalaudience.  Keep in mind that, for a white paper to an external audience, you will not be writing to an audience for an organization of which you are a member.  In other words, you would not write a white paper to your boss about the need to correct a problem in your company.  That would be an internal white paper because you are a part of the company.You would not write a white paper to the board of directors of your son’s soccer league about the need to address a problem in the soccer fields.  That would be an internal white paper because you are a part of the soccer league.However, you could write a white paperto other companiesabout a product or service that your company sells or offers.Or you could write a white paper to soccer leagues around the country about problems in soccer fields.For example, let us consider an example of a person named Susan.  She works for a company that has developed a new method of training IT personnel.  She could write a white paper for companies that have IT departments.  The white paper might compare current methods of training IT personnel to the new method that her company has created.This would be an example of an external audience, as Susan is not familiar with the individuals who will read her white paper, does not work for these companies, and is not involved in these companies.Or we can consider an example of a person named Joseph.  He works for a company that had a bad experience in moving its data to the cloud.  He could write a white paper for companies that are considering moving their data to the cloud.  The white paper would discuss current reasons companies are considering moving to the cloud in light of the pitfalls of moving to the cloud that Joe feels companies should be aware of.This would be an example of an external audience, as Joseph is not familiar with the individuals who will read his white paper, does not work for the companies that might benefit from it, and is not involved in these companies in any way.2. Describe what terms you might need to define or what concepts you might need to explain for a white paper of the type you mentioned in task #1 above.  For example, a white paper that gives cautions about moving to the cloud will have to define certain cloud terminology for its audience.  A white paper that describes a new method of training IT personnel will have to define certain terms used in IT now.3. Please read the following article on recipes:Anderson, L.V. (2015, October 21). Kitchen nightmares: Why poorly written recipes drive me nuts. Slate Plus. https://slate.com/human-interest/2015/10/recipes-why-are-they-so-badly-written.html1. After perusing the article, examine the following set of instructions for a recipe and answer this question: According to Anderson, what is wrong with each step?Place 2 lbs. of ground beef into the pot.Mix 1 cup chopped onion into the ground beefStir ground beef.2. Anderson writes the following:Don’t take this the wrong way, but a good recipe is written under the assumption that the people who read it are idiots.Is this good advice for technical writers in general when they write instructions for a task?  What problems or frustrations might occur if a set of instructions is written assuming the audience has no knowledge of the task when the audience does, in fact, have some background knowledge of the task?For writing assignment #3, the recipe, Anderson’s statement should be heeded.  While we wouldn’t call Alice an “idiot,” the scenario in which that recipe is to be written is one for which the audience, Alice, has little to no knowledge of cooking.  Anderson’s advice should be followed for writing assignment #3.

Writing Context

Read the following sections in preparation for this assignment:”Thesis” in CEL Ch. 8, p. 251-254We are working in this unit towards the goal of writing an essay that defines the context for your chosen issue and synthesizes existing perspectives about the issue.Context, as we have defined it, is both a rhetorical tool and an analytical tool. We have used context to evaluate texts in other assignments from this module. For this activity, we will use context as a rhetorical tool to give purpose, focus, and grounding to the ideas we are developing for our research on a relevant cultural or social issue.Assignment:Write a short response of at least 200 words in which you practice defining the context for the topic you are writing about in this unit. Use the following questions from the “Thesis” section in CEL Ch. 8 to help you. Additionally, see the example below for analysis of context in the Wykoff article:How can you establish that the issue you are writing about is relevant: timely, current, and part of important existing conversations?How can you refer to existing perspectives on your chosen issue in order to show that you are knowledgeable and that your ideas are credible?How can you identify space in the existing conversation for your own ideas: a chance to re-interpret, disagree, extend existing arguments, or provide new evidence and support?What is your thesis and main claim, and how does your main claim take part in the context that you have established above?Submit your response as 1-2 strong, coherent paragraphs to this assignment.ExampleHere is one example of how student writer Simon Wykoff moves quickly through these questions to create a context for his thesis and main claims (see Wykoff, “Unemployed and Working Hard,” CEL 403):RELEVANCE OF ISSUE: “A common stereotype in today’s society is that of the lazy bum. People see a homeless man on the side of the road, waiting for handouts, and assume that’s all he ever does”EXISTING PERSPECTIVES: “According to a fact sheet available from the National Coalition for the Homeless, […] roughly 3.5 million people in the United States will experience homelessness every year”SPACE FOR YOUR IDEAS: “In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. […] For most of my childhood, my father was one of these many homeless people. While growing up, I spent a large amount of my time living on the streets with him. I can tell you from my experiences that the process he went through every day in order to find food and shelter was one of the roughest “jobs” I have ever seen.”YOUR THESIS AND MAIN CLAIMS: “This is absolutely true, and I think you’ll find that homeless people are incredibly busy doing the most important job to all of us: surviving”
