Even when you are communicating the same information,how you write a message may change depending on who you are writing to.
You may do this naturally without realizing it.
But you can also make choices to customize your message to your audience.
For example, a text to a friend might use different language - including emojis,GIFs, and slang - than a text to an adult.
In this video, you will write 2 different texts in your document.
One text will be to a friend, and one will be to an adult,like a coach, a counselor, or a club sponsor.
You will customize, or adjust your writing, to speak appropriately to each person.
Customizing your writing for your recipient makesit easier for that person to understand your message.
When you adjust your writing to suit a specific person,that person is more likely to understand your message.
It shows respect, and communicates that you are considerateand value the time and effort it takes to read your message.
To begin, go to the document you copied in the last videoand read the scenario at the top of the page.
You can write about this scenario, choose another topic, or your teacher may assign a scenario.
Once you’ve chosen your scenario, write a text to your friend.
When you are writing to a friend, it is OK to use abbreviationslike "IRL" or "LOL".
You may use slang that you know your friend will understand, but you may notfeel right saying to a coach or another adult because they may not understand your message.
You may also use emojis or GIFs in a text to a friend.
Next, write a text to share the news with an adult you know well,like a coach, a counselor, or a club leader.
Think about the person you are writing to.If you’re writing to an adult you know well,you can write in a friendly way, but still show respect by using completesentences, correct grammar, appropriate punctuation, and by leaving out slang.
When you finish writing the message, move on to the next video to write a more formal message.
