Respond Letter

This exercise will allow you to consider channel and persuasion and continues our discussion of writing that was started during class and in Forum 1. In this Forum, you will respond directly to an email composed for Forum 1 by one your section peers. You will take on a specific role as a store management team member. As this team member you will write an email in response to the message from the Director of Store Operations that you are encouraged to apply for a position on the New York City store opening team.
For this assignment:
Choose one (1) of the following voices to adopt for this email:
1.Store Manager – Recently married. No kids just a golden retriever. Your spouse also works at another BizCafe. You reside in Los Angeles, California.
2.Senior Store Manager – Married. Your partner has a high-profile job that is fully remote. Children are in middle school. You reside in Dallas, Texas.
3.Assistant Store Manager – Young and single. Avid snow skier. Avid sailor. You reside in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
You have three specific concerns related to the New York City opportunity. To prepare for the upcoming Zoom meeting, and to help your Director prepare, you feel compelled to respond to their email so that they will be able to come to the meeting with the answers that you and others will need.
You turn on your iPad and compose a concise but substantive response of 450–550 words to the Director’s email. Express your top 3 concerns with moving to New York City and why those issues could be a barrier to you applying. Be sure to consider the tone and style you use, as this is a conversation that could be volatile on both ends. Remember, you are writing as if you yourself are in one of the three positions outlined above.

Research Techniques

As shown in the textbook and online readings, you have three primary techniques of using materials from sources: Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing. Quoting is using information word for word, punctuation for pumctuation exactly the same as the original source. For most quoted materials, you will need to use quotation marks around the entire borrowed passage. If you are simply quoting a name or a number of some sort, you do not need to use quotation marks, although every time you borrow from a source you still need to cite that source in-text. Paraphrasing is taking the entire borrowed passage, including main point and evidence used by the original author (Do not quote a quote!), and put it into your own words by using your own language and syntax (changing the words and the order the information is presented), still citing the source you are paraphrasing. Summaries are similar to paraphrases in that you take the borrowed material from the source and put it into your own language and syntax, but a summary only identifies the main point of the passage, not the evidence the original authors used. As with quoting and paraphrasing, you will still cite your source. Each of these techniques is necessary in writing an effective research paper, but they are not all the same. Some times you will want to quote, at other times you will want to paraphrase, and at still other times you will want to summarize.
Please answer the following prompt:
When do you want to quote, when do you want to paraphrase, and when do you want to summarize? Each technique is useful in different circumstances within a research paper. What defines those circumstances?
For your answer, identify when you believe each technique is best. You will want to write at least 3 long sentences for the answer, one for each technique, although writing a short paragraph for each answer (3-4 sentences each) may be more effective.
Resources
Please review the textbook and online readings about using source material

First, please note that your research will not be causal research in design.
Second, when it comes to data collection for a later assignment, let’s stick with creating a questionnaire to measure whatever it is you want to measure as determined in your Chapter 2 Assignment (based on the objectives) — of course, I’m open to other data collection methods if you would like to try something such as a focus group for example. Questionnaires and creating questions are covered in more detail under Chapter 7.
Lastly, after reading Chapter 3, take a look at your research problem and give a brief descriiption of how you think exploratory and descriiptive research designs might be appropriate for your chosen study and what methods you might use to discover hypotheses and to provide answers to the decision problem. Support your answer by using terms from the textbook and additional reliable information online.

Summary of the Assignment:
• Task: In this assignment, you will write a set of instructions that explain how to accomplish a task on a website at a local institution. You will also write a brief descriiption of how the personas that you wrote for writing assignment #1 informed this assignment.
• Length: There is no minimum or maximum word count on the set of instructions. However, your instructions must have 8 or more steps. More information on the number of steps is provided below.

• Incorporating the personas into this assignment: You will write a descriiption of 100 to 200 words indicating to the instructor how your instructions accommodate the personas you wrote in writing assignment #1.
For this assignment, it is acceptable to write a set of instructions on how to accomplish a task on a mobile device. An example of this approach would be a set of instructions on how to download an app to borrow library books from your local library.

• The organization or company can be national. However, the set of instructions you write must involve a local or regional location for that national organization. For example, you can write about how to arrange a rental tool online at Home Depot, provided that you are arranging the rental at a local Home Depot location.
• If you have questions about whether your topic will work, please contact your instructor for approval or for suggestions on the topic.

• Whether you choose a local establishment or a national organization with regional locations, the important features of your set of instructions will be that they are written to a general audience but also accommodate the specific personas that you wrote for writing assignment #1.
Some examples of topics are the following. (Keep in mind that you may select your own topic. These are just examples to help you consider various topics.)
o how to check your balance in your checking account online at your local bank or credit union

o how to order a chabchae dish from the local Korean restaurant in your area o how to locate a product on your local Craigslist site and contact the seller to
arrange for purchase and pickup
o how to order a large pizza online from a local pizzeria in your neighborhood
o how to pay a fee on the website for the Motor Vehicle Association in Maryland
(or the equivalent for your state)
• You must have at least 8 steps.
• Each step is to be numbered and is to begin with an imperative verb, as the resources in
the class indicate.
• Every step will include a picture or graphic to help the reader follow the instructions.
Sections to Include in Your Set of Instructions:
The set of instructions will include the following sections:

of your personas had at least one pain point or one unique situation that needs attention in your set of instructions.
