Workers Trapped After Chilean Copper Mine Collapse” article found
in the Electronic Reserve Readings
articles and information about the Chilean mine
Write a 700- to
1,050-word paper using this and other articles as a resource.
Because communications must be designed with the audience in mind,
answer the following questions:
What are some considerations to remember given the different
roles and people in the audience?
What would be the potential needs of the families of the
miners in receiving a message about this incident?
What would be the potential needs of the company’s employees
when receiving a message about this incident?
What actions must you take before and after the message is
delivered to ensure that it was received as intended?
Format the paper
consistent with APA guidelines.
Draft two communications
from the mining company announcing the accident, using what you
have learned about the audience and effective messages. One
communication should be directed to the families of the trapped
miners and the other as an internal news release to employees in
the company. For both, identify the most appropriate
channel—face-to-face, e-mail, video, memo, and so on.
