Professional Writing Final Reflection

  1. 1. Professional Writing Final Reflection Carly  Fleck  
  2. 2. Professional  Tone     •  Every  field  of  study  has  it’s  own  unique   approach;  but  every  field  of  study  shares  a   common  approach:  professionalism.   •  No  matter  where  you  go  in  life  or  what  you   may  do,  you  will  always  want  to  be   professional.  
  3. 3. Catching  the  Readers  Eye   Email  Newsletter   •  Email  subject  titles  can  make  or  break  you.     You  want  the  reader  to  be  interested  in  what   you  have  to  say;  therefore  you  must  create  a   subject  line  that  will  make  the  reader  want  to   first  open  the  email.   •  The  more  detailed  you  are,  the  better  chance   you  have  that  your  email  will  not  only  be   opened,  but  it  will  also  be  read.  
  4. 4. Catching  the  Readers  Eye   Email  Newsletter   •  In  order  to  fully  understand  what  type  of  email   subject  line  interests  readers,  I  went  through   my  inbox,  my  sent,  and  my  deleted  messages.   •  I  decided  what  emails  I  would  open  as  well  as   which  ones  I  would  go  ahead  and  delete;  this   gave  me  a  much  better  understanding  of  what   engages  readers.  
  5. 5. Keeping  the  Readers  Interest   Email  Newsletter   •  Although  you  may  be  able  to  convince  the   reader  to  open  your  email,  you  have  to  keep   the  readers  attention  throughout  it.   •  If  you  start  off  negative  or  with  something   irrelevant,  the  reader  might  automatically   close  out  and  delete  the  email.   •  You  want  the  reader  to  read  what  you  wrote.  
  6. 6. Keeping  the  Readers  Interest   Email  Newsletter   •  Although  all  emails  have  different  goals,  you  must   first  be  able  have  the  reader  look  at  the  entire   email.   •  To  get  a  correct  and  accurate  understanding,  I   went  ahead  and  looked  through  some  of  my   friends  inbox’s.  I  decided  what  emails  made  me   want  to  continue  reading  and  the  ones  that  lost   my  interest  immediately.    I  then  asked  others  to   do  the  same  and  explain  to  me  what  made  them   keep  reading  or  what  made  them  close  out.  
  7. 7. Time  Management   NPP  Work  Schedule   •  No  matter  how  much  time  a  student  is  given  to   complete  an  assignment,  it  never  seems  to  be   enough.    Many  students  tend  to  wait  until  the   last  minute,  thinking  they  have  a  lot  amount  of   time,  which  is  usually  not  the  case.   •  In  order  to  correctly  calculate  the  time  it  will   take  you  to  start  and  complete  an  assignment,   you  first  have  to  be  aware  of  your  own  work   habits.  
  8. 8. Time  Management   NPP  Work  Schedule   •  To  be  sure  that  my  schedules  are  precise  and   accurate,  I  must  think  realistically.    I  know  my   work/study  habits  and  then  go  ahead  and   apply  them  to  my  estimated  time  schedule.   •  Although,  I  would  love  to  finish  my  work  days   ahead  of  time,  I  know  that  it  will  not  actually   happen.    You  have  to  make  your  schedule  is   for  you  in  order  for  it  to  work  on  time  and   correctly.  
  9. 9. Understanding  the  Audience   New  Program  Proposal   •  When  writing,  you  must  understand  who  your   readers  are.    You  want  to  write  so  that  they   understand  what  you  are  saying  as  well  as   allowing  them  to  find  interest  in  your  writing.   •  If  you  write  on  a  middle-­‐school  level,   professionals  are  not  going  to  respect  your   writing  and  vise  versa.    Middle-­‐school  students   will  not  understand  an  extremely  professional   tone.  
  10. 10. Understanding  the  Audience   New  Program  Proposal   •  When  I  began  to  write  the  New  Program   Proposal,  I  had  to  understand  that  I  was   writing  to  students,  but  also  those  students   are  the  ones  that  direct  student  programs  on   our  campus.   •  To  be  sure  that  I  was  writing  in  the  correct   tone,  I  went  ahead  and  looked  up  different   examples.    I  then  compared  these  examples  to   my  work  and  made  adjustments  as  needed.  
  11. 11. Benefits   •  Without  learning  how  to  catch  the  readers   eye,  keep  the  reader  interested,  have  effective   time  management  skills,  and  understand  the   audience  I  would  not  be  able  to  fully  succeed   in  the  real  world.   •  Without  these  four  important  topics  others   would  not  be  able  to  take  me  seriously  nor   would  I  excel  in  my  field  of  work.  
  12. 12. Applying  Objectives   •  In  my  everyday  life  I  will  use  everything  I  have   learned  in  this  class;  from  writing  emails  daily,   to  making  sure  I  hand  in  tasks  in  a  timely   manner,  and  being  sure  my  audience  will  find   interest  in  my  writing;  without  applying  these   skills  my  goals  and  dreams  will  not  be  capable   of  becoming  fulfilled.   •  These  skills  are  ones  that  everyone  needs,   without  them,  success  is  not  in  reach.
