Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

You are writing articles for two different audiences to persuade them that voting in local elections is important. One is for sixth-grade students, and one is for their parents. How will your writing differ based on these two different audiences?

Jules L.
Answer:

For an audience of sixth graders, it's important to use simplified language in order to clearly communicate your point. My writing would also address the reader using words like "you" in order to help appeal to their shorter attention spans. Finally, since sixth graders are not yet old enough to vote, I would mention the work of younger activists to show that my readers could make a difference in our nation's legislation even if they were not yet old enough to vote themselves. Parents of sixth graders, however, are a very different audience. For their article, I would be able to use more academic language in order to make more nuanced points about the importance of voting. I would also include examples of narrowly-passed legislation that helped local schools to show that positive change can occur when caring parents vote. Finally, I would make sure to address at least one counter-argument in my writing, because adults' opinions tend to be more fully-formed and this would make my writing appear more trustworthy.

Question:

List and define the three types of irony.

Jules L.
Answer:

Dramatic irony: This type of irony occurs when the readers know something that the characters in a literary work do not. Situational irony: This type of irony occurs when the readers expect one thing to happen in the plot of a literary work, but a different outcome occurs instead. Verbal irony: When a character in a literary work says one thing, but means something else, the author is using verbal irony.

Question:

What was the role of muckraking journalism during the American Industrial Revolution? Give one example.

Jules L.
Answer:

"Muckraking journalism" was another name for the investigative-style writing that exposed the horrors of American factories in the late 19th and early 20th century. This kind of journalism called for legislative action on behalf of workers and consumers. Writers like Upton Sinclair exposed the horrific labor conditions of Chicago meatpacking plants and the heavily contaminated products with his famous 1905 novel "The Jungle." Thanks to muckraking journalists like Sinclair, President Theodore Roosevelt passed the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act that aimed to regulate the sanitary conditions of factories.
