Based on the information you provided, it seems like you are required to compare and contrast communication strategies for two different scenarios.
In the first scenario, you need to convey the information about a canceled trip to Mexico to 25 of your classmates, who have lost their $100 deposit. The goal is to maintain goodwill towards you despite the disappointing news.
To approach this scenario, you can consider the following communication strategies:
1. Readability Formulas: Use simple and concise language, avoid technical jargon or complex terms that may confuse or frustrate your classmates.
2. Good Style: Use a friendly and empathetic tone in your communication. Express understanding of their disappointment while being clear and informative about the situation.
3. Building Goodwill: Show that you care about their concerns and feelings. Offer alternative solutions or options, if applicable. Provide a clear explanation of the reasons for the cancellation and address any questions or concerns they may have. Offer assistance in any way you can to mitigate the negative impact of the cancellation.
For the second scenario, you need to draft a letter addressing a mistake made by your local bank, where they charged you for checks that were supposed to be complimentary. The goal is to express your irritation effectively, without damaging your relationship with the bank.
Here are some communication strategies to consider:
1. Readability Formulas: Keep the language professional and courteous while clearly expressing your frustration. Avoid using offensive language or making personal attacks.
2. Good Style: Use a tone that reflects your concern but also conveys a desire for a resolution. Clearly explain the issue, providing supporting evidence if available. Suggest a solution or request a corrective action without being confrontational.
3. Building Goodwill: Acknowledge any positive experiences you have had with the bank in the past and express your expectation that the mistake will be rectified promptly. Offer suggestions for improvements or ways the bank can correct the situation to maintain your business. Show willingness to work together towards a resolution.
You can use Appendix B, provided in your assignment, to brainstorm and organize your ideas before writing your response for one of the scenarios. This will help you consider and incorporate the communication strategies mentioned earlier.
I understand that you're feeling overwhelmed with this assignment and need some guidance. Let me try to break it down and help you understand what your professor is asking for.
In this assignment, you are given two scenarios. The first scenario is about informing your classmates that a trip to Mexico during spring break has been canceled due to the bankruptcy of the bus company. The second scenario involves writing a letter to your local bank addressing a mistake on your printed checks and the bank charging you for them when they were supposed to be complimentary.
The main objective of the assignment is to compare and contrast the communication strategies, readability formulas, good style, and building goodwill that you would use to respond to the different audiences in these two scenarios.
To get started, you can brainstorm the different communication strategies and consider the readability formulas, good style, and building goodwill aspects for each scenario. Appendix B provided in the assignment might give you some additional hints and guidance on how to approach these scenarios.
If you need further assistance in understanding the concepts or need help generating ideas, you can refer to external resources like the link you provided. It seems to contain some search results related to the scenario of the canceled trip to Mexico.
I hope this helps you get started on your assignment. Remember, it's important to think about the intended audience, the purpose of your message, and the best approach to convey the information while maintaining goodwill. Good luck with your assignment!
