Experiencing a second writing course may include you to write in a very different manner depending what you want to write, and who you are writing to. Especially in my class AGR COMM 2367. This class has you writing to different audiences with very different ways of writing. For instance the way you write to your mother and the way you write to your boss completely turns the tide of your writing style. Here are some things to keep in mind when taking this course; consider your audience, purpose, ideas, and feelings of the paper.
This course will have you thinking on many different things like; what to think during a crisis situation, and how to tell your audience not to freak out about the situation at hand. Since in that situation communicating is key to either be aware of the situation, or to help with donation in this certain situation.
There is one assignment that has you write about all five senses on agri-tourism or agri-tainment like in the picture above, I went to a family farm to write my experience. The taste of the air, the smell of crops and straw, the laughing and playing of children, the touch of grass, and the sight of a hayride. All this was put into the assignment; it was a fun, exciting experience.
The class does have you think about real agriculture issues today and how they are facing those issues. What is your opinion on GMO labeling? This question came to me while I was sitting in my class, and I had never really thought about it before. I considered my options; positive which will promote GMO, negative which will put consumer in more of and unaware situation, or neutral promote GMO but it may do it in a negative way. I was at a standstill at the time I was asked that question. I really did not have a stance of the issue, since I had not thought of it until it was brought up in this class.
This class has many things wrapped in one big blanket of experiences to tell all of my stories would ruin everything for you. So I suggest you take this class and experience the class for yourself. I would like to thank the teachers for the tips and experience, fellow peers for opinions, and of course you the reader.
