Enhancing the Writer-Audience Connection

Instructional Resource

This lesson helps students work toward strengthening the writer-audience connection through their word choices. Students should be able to acquire and experiment with both new and prior vocabulary to better understand how, when, and why to use the words they choose to create a specific effect. They need to be able to make the choices writers make in order to address various audiences and purposes. Through experimenting with the effects of specific word choices, a student can begin to see and strengthen the connection and communication between the writer and the audience.
