Definition Assignment: This task required creating three definitions (parenthetical, sentence, and enhanced) of a technical term for a non-technical audience.

Complaint Letter: The complaint letter offers a chance to practice the art of persuading an audience to respond in a certain way. I chose to draw upon a negative experience from purchasing a printer at an electronics store. Writing a complaint letter in a professional and respectful manner helps the writer achieve the purpose set out in the letter more effectively.
