Developing Definitions and Assessing Audience

 

Choose your topic:

  • marriage
  • murder
  • terrorism

 

Definition:

  • Write a thorough, comprehensive definition of your chosen word.  This should take you a few sentences to a paragraph.
  • Make sure to include one or both of the following:
    • At least three criteria that a situation must meet to be defined as your chosen word (e.g. "An act can be considered terrorism if a) it involves X, b) it is committed by Y," etc.)
    • Two examples, one which is an example of your term and one which is not.  Explain why each is or is not an example (e.g. "X is murder because...")

 

Audience:

 

Email me (s.muecke@wayne.edu) your completed definition/audience assignments before leaving class today.
