Question and answer
Provide 2 tips for writing in each rhetorical mode. Narration
First, define the overall unit. In a few paragraphs or a couple of pages, explain what the document is and for whom it is intended. [ [ Readers will be able to appreciate reasons why they should read the document, and will be more likely to take an interest. In addition, understanding the overarching structure will help to put the pieces in context as they browse categories, either reading
straight through or selecting areas for particular information. Next, list sub-points derived from the main idea. If the handbook you are writing describes employee benefits, for example, you may need to categorize these into various types, such as medical, disability, and educational. Again, explain what you are doing in terms of the document's layout, then list each point succinctly and separately, whether on pages or paragraphs, so readers can find the information they need quickly. . Don't use too many categories. Page after page of one section after another will probably overwhelm a majority of readers. Of course, such lists make useful reference tools, but they are not effective training tools to teach new skills or desirable outcomes. Keep your classification simple and short. Perhaps the most time-consuming task is drawing distinctions between similar entities and writing descriptions for them. But taking time to do a thorough job will make easier reading later and perhaps contribute to increased productivity. Don't use too many categories.
