Final reflection assignment

  1. 1. By Gianna Libretti
  2. 2.  Functional Outline: provided an organizational pattern for memos and letters that inform and request.  News (What?): Informing or requesting? The purpose of the memo/letter must be stated right away, expect for bad news where you can say something nice before stating the bad news.  Reason (Why?): What is the reason for writing the memo/letter to inform or request? Separate your news from your reasons if you have more than one reason. Do not begin the memo/letter with your reason.  Details (How?): Details of the information you are giving the reader? Details of your request?  Closing (Now what? And/or HONEY): What do you want the reader to do when finishing the memo/letter? Do you want to thank the reader or close with a courteous statement that doesn’t require the reader to do anything?
  3. 3. 5      Cs Document: Clear: The news/purpose of your correspondence must be put in the beginning of your memo, letter, or e-mail. There are only 3 purposes in any business correspondence: inform, request, persuade. Make sure it is clear who your reader is. Make sure details in your correspondence are clear to the reader. Make sure your information is organized in a way that is easy for the reader to follow. Make sure your word choice is clear as well. Concise: Your correspondence must be concise. Do not use excess words. Language in business writing is simple and to the point. KISS (keep it short and simple) is the rule to live by. Do not use flowery or overly formal language. Do not use excess information that is not needed. Carefully analyze your reader(s) to determine what information is needed and what information is already known by your reader(s). Complete: Do not miss any news/details that are necessary in order to understand the memo/letter/e-mail. Must include the news, details, and closing. Stating your reason(s) will depend on the situation. Correct: Must have correct grammar, format, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and word usage. Courteous: Be careful of loaded language, punctuation that shouts, and capital letters. Do not order something, request politely. Do not use biased or sexist language.
