Our final project is about the development of e-mail. By showing it grows and evolves rapidly, we want to show our writing behavior is also changing as well. People nowadays more and more like to write briefly and immediately with various electronic devices such as laptop, smart phone and tablet computer. However, whether this trend of writing habit is good or not is still too early to say.
The target audiences of our project are current e-mails users. Most of them have seen the emergence of e-mail and are experiencing the evolvement of it. Therefore, our project could attract the target audiences by showing the history of e-mails and some characters of current e-mails. Moreover, we have made a very interesting video clip as the beginning of our project. It compares the life of a fast-growing baby with the rapid development of e-mails, which might lead audiences to think deeper about whether the pace of the development is too fast.
The ultimate purpose is to show the rapid development of e-mails and make audience to think about this process. In order to achieve this goal, we use a video clip to make a interesting comparison between e-mails and a baby. Then we show the examples and writing trend of current e-mails. By applying a specific example of current e-mail writing process, audiences could clearly see the changes of length, content and format. Moreover, we also include a interview in our video to test and verify the arguments in our video.
This project helped me learn more about how to make a rhetoric composition. In order to make our arguments convincing, I had to think about questions such as what are our audiences and how to make our project be attractive to them. Some of the rhetorical strategies played an important role in our project and the process of applying these method also let us have a more complete understanding of our project.
