1) Write three killer opening sentences for your podcast script; of the three, which one will you use to start your script?
2) Look at the real controlled assessment task you will be completing (see below).
Write the script for a podcast aimed at young people, in which you review your favourite children’s literature.
Now, referring to the above task, answer the following questions:
a) Is the audience (your listeners) defined by age, gender or occupation?
b) What should you assume about the interests and attitudes of your listeners?
c) How hard do you think you will need to try to interest them in your topic?
d) Why might your listeners either want, or need, to know what you have to tell them?
e) What will be the appropriate register (formal or informal) for your listeners?
