Technical writing Unit IV assignment

Unit IV 

Chapter 9 of our textbook explains the best strategies for delivering good and bad news in the letter format.   

For example, if you are writing to employees you supervise to tell them that it is mandatory they work an upcoming Saturday, you wouldn’t start out the letter by saying something like, “I have to work this next Saturday and so do you.”   That might be the bottom line for everyone, but you should start out the letter by telling your readers something positive, like how much you appreciate their willingness to help you. 

 Take some time to review the strategies presented in the chapter and then write two letters to fit the scenarios provided in your syllabus.  You can be creative in your content if you choose, but remember to illustrate the letter formats presented in the chapter.

Unit IV Assignment Imagine you are a small business owner trying to grow your business, and use the guidelines and examples from Chapter 9 to create two separate letters to your customers for the following purposes. For each letter, you may choose what type of business you own and what your business is selling. 1. An expensive product you sold but did not manufacture was recently returned to your store because it was defective, and the customer is angry that your store did not catch the defect prior to the sale. To make matters worse, you no longer have this item in stock, and you will not be able to order another. Write a “bad-news” letter to explain the situation and apologize to the customer. See figure 9.8 in the textbook for an example of a bad-news letter. 2. A job that your company was hired to complete was finished ahead of schedule and under budget. Write a “good-news” letter that would be attached to a final invoice, explaining the situation and thanking the customer for doing business with you. See figure 9.7 in the textbook for an example of a good-news letter. EH 3341, Technical Writing 4 Each letter should be approximately one page in length. Upload both letters as a single document. Use proper letter format and grammatical conventions to write a good-news and a bad-news letter. Be sure to include the elements of a letter as discussed in the textbook, and write using clear and concise sentences. References are not required for this assignment.
