3 Assessing the writing situation C1-a Writing is a process of fguring out what you think not a matter of recording already developed thoughts. Since it’s not possible to think about everything all at once you will fnd the process more manageable if you handle a piece of writing in stages. You will generally move from planning to drafting to revising but as your ideas develop you will fnd yourself circling back and returning to earlier stages. C1 Planning C1-a Assess the writing situation. Begin by taking a look at your writing situation. Consider your subject your purpose your audience available sources of information and any assignment requirements such as genre length document design and deadlines see the checklist on p. 5. It is likely that you will make fnal decisions about all of these matters later in the writing process — after a frst draft for example — but you will become a more effective writer if you think about as many of them as possible in advance. Purpose In many writing situations part of your challenge will be determining your purpose or your reason for writing. The wording of an assignment may suggest its purpose. If no guidelines are given you may need to ask yourself “Why am I communicating with my readers” or “What do I want to accomplish” College writers most often write for the following purposes: to inform to analyze to explain to synthesize to summarize to propose to persuade to call readers to action to evaluate to change attitudes Audience Analyzing your audience can often help you determine how to accom- plish your purpose — how much detail or explanation to provide what kind of tone and language to use and what potential objections to address. The choices you make as you write will tell readers who you think they are novices or experts for example and will show respect for your readers’ values and perspectives. The checklist on page 5 includes questions that will help you analyze your audience and develop an effective strategy for reaching your readers. hackerhandbooks.com/writersref C1 Planning Exercises: C1–3 02_HAC_6676_chC_003-068.indd 3 17/07/14 5:01 pm

4 C1-b Planning NOTE: When you write e-mail messages to instructors classmates or potential employers respect your reader by using a concise meaning- ful subject line keeping paragraphs brief and focused proofreading for careless errors and paying attention to your tone. Don’t write some- thing that you wouldn’t feel comfortable saying directly to your reader. Finally avoid forwarding another person’s message without permission. Genre Pay close attention to the genre or type of writing assigned. Each genre is a category of writing meant for a specifc purpose and audience — an essay in a writing class a lab report in a biology class a policy memo in a criminal justice class or a case study for an education class. Some- times the genre is yours to choose and you need to decide if a particular genre — a poster presentation an audio essay a Web page or a podcast for example — will help you communicate your purpose and reach readers. Academic English What counts as good writing varies from culture to culture. In some situations you will need to become familiar with the writing styles — such as direct or indirect personal or impersonal plain or embellished — that are valued by the culture or discipline for which you are writing. C1-b Experiment with ways to explore your subject. Instead of plunging into a frst draft experiment with one or more tech- niques for exploring your subject and discovering your purpose: talking and listening reading and annotating texts asking questions brainstorm- ing clustering freewriting keeping a journal blogging. Whatever tech- nique you turn to the goal is the same: to generate ideas that will lead you to a question a problem or a topic that you want to explore further. Talking and listening Because writing is a process of fguring out what you think about a sub- ject it can be useful to try out your ideas on other people. Conversation can deepen and refne your ideas even before you begin to draft. By talking and listening to others you can also discover what they fnd hackerhandbooks.com/writersref C1 Planning As you write: Thinking like a college writer C1 Planning As you write: Exploring a subject 02_HAC_6676_chC_003-068.indd 4 17/07/14 5:01 pm

475 Forming a working thesis APA-1a This tabbed section shows how to document sources in APA style for the social sciences and felds such as nursing and business and in CMS Chicago style for history and some humanities classes. It also includes discipline-specifc advice on three important topics: sup- porting a thesis citing sources and avoiding plagiarism and inte- grating sources. note: For advice on fnding and evaluating sources and on managing information in courses across the disciplines see the tabbed section R Researching. APA Papers Most instructors in the social sciences and some instructors in other disciplines will ask you to document your sources with the American Psychological Association APA system of in-text citations and refer - ences described in APA-4. You face three main challenges when writing a social science paper that draws on sources: 1 supporting a thesis 2 citing your sources and avoiding plagiarism and 3 integrating quo- tations and other source material. Examples in this section are drawn from one student’s research for a review of the literature on treatments for childhood obesity. Luisa Mirano’s paper appears on pages 526–34. APA-1 Supporting a thesis Most research assignments ask you to form a thesis or main idea and to support that thesis with well-organized evidence. In a paper review- ing the literature on a topic the thesis analyzes the often competing conclusions drawn by a variety of researchers. APA-1a f orm a working thesis.
