  1. You’ve done an excellent analysis of the audience of this article. However, I don’t know that you have thoroughly engaged with the textbook reading. How would you, as a writer, identify your audience? What kinds of questions would you ask yourself to figure out how to tailor your rhetoric (your persuasive writing) to that audience you want to reach?
