  • 5. Name:_____________________________________Dear Reader Letter for Your Mixed Multigenre Page This is usually one of the LAST activities you complete even though it will come near the beginning. This serves as a guide for the reader. It provides the reader with some idea as to how to read the paper and the information they ought to know before reading the paper. This can also briefly discuss your journey with the assignment and the challenges faced. This letter is written in a letter-form with a salutation addressed to “Dear Reader.” If you are struggling with what to write, partner with someone and give them the highlights of the information you are supplying and the attitude your are striving to establish. Have your partner say back what they understood and ask questions that naturally arise in their mind. From their response, write a “letter” to the reader filling in the blanks they pointed out. Use this as a rough draft for your prologue, revisiting it and revising it as needed. It should be multiple paragraphs---we are requiring at least four---see below.>What you knew about the topic before the research began>What resources were used to find the information and which resources weremost helpful for each specific research question?>Highlights of what you learned---what are the take aways from the learningexperience?> Why should someone take time to read and explore the group project? Whydoes this topic matter? Include a closing. Example: Sincerely, Ellie Smith Lester and Hamilton Spring 2012 Multigenre Paper in Microsoft WORD Guidelines | 5
