ROUTINE AND GOOD NEWS LETTERS Ms. Debbie F. Dianco
Routine and Good news Letters: - are letters that convey pleasant information. - are easier to write. The trick to writing these kinds of letters is to put the Main Ideaat the beginningof the message.
ROUTINE AND GOOD NEWS LETTERS = take the direct approach in delivering information. Main Idea Supporting Details Neutral Or Positive Closing
ADVANTAGES • Saves time for the reader. • Places the main idea at the beginning, where it will be emphasized. • Simplifies composition. • Once the important idea is identified and written, the remaining sentences fall into place.
Remember: • Do not use impersonal or weak language. • Express ideas from the reader’s point of view. • Use a friendly and personal tone.
