Description: Learning writing strategies for addressing general audiences in Education. CO301D focuses on writing for a full range of public audiences interested in issues and practices in education, including parents, school boards, legislators and other education policy makers, and teachers in training. To write successfully for these readers, students need to be able to analyze audiences and their needs in detail, building sophistication about rhetorical context as they do so. Students specifically target publications including local and national newspapers, magazines as diverse as US News and World Report and Phi Delta Kappan, or general websites such as Education.com and education advocacy websites.
