These steps can help us anticipate how readers will use our texts.

How do we test for reader-based text?

Tyler, Josh, and Jacob:

How do we predict what each reader is looking for?

  1. Not a narrative, but issues and ideas
  2. Create a hierarchy of ideas for the reader rather than telling them a story
  3. Write about the problems that employee's want outside input on

How do we test for reader based text?

  1. Testing your drafts against your initial plans
  2. Using cues to reveal this plan to a reader
  3. Keeping the promise you made in your writing
  4. Know who your reader is

1)

    * Using cues that restate your thesis
    * An outline to breakdown your thoughts
    * "I" is relative to the type of projects but can make important points

2)

    * Go through several revisions with other readers
    * Reading out loud
