You will probably find that you need to work on both questions together. As you work on Question two, you might find that you expand or refine the answer to question one.
- Landrieu is working to reach multiple audiences. Describe the different audiences he wants to reach, and why.
- Landrieu cites (either by quoting directly or referencing what the person said) a number of people. First, make a list of the people he cites, then consider why he used that person. How does this help us understand who is audience is?
Your answers don’t need to be in paragraph form. You can use bullet points (for instance, to make the list of people he references), but be sure to answer the larger questions in sentences.
