English

I need help to understand conceptual goals and practical goals: very vague questions provided. The definition I was provided for conceptual goals-you want your audience members to change beliefs and attitudes. The definition I was provided for a practical goal you have a specific action in mind and try to convince your audience that it should take this action. Inspire action out there.

1. This document describes the events that led to Mr. Smith's dismissal.

2. Of our cost-cutting options, renegotiating our lease agreements for the airplane fleet would save the company more than the next three options combined.

3. Our investigation shows that security costs have risen in four of the past five years.

4. Well-fitting footwear can reduce the circulation problems that lead to struggles with balance.

5. Bander hedge trimmers are more powerful but less expensive than comparable models; therefore, they represent your best buy in the market.

6. Our software helps you save money, time and effort-for most busy executives, it's like winning the trifecta.

7. Repainting your garage door every third year protects it from weather-related rust.

8. The following table summarizes the results of the most recent customer satisfaction survey.

9. Demographic data predicts a drop in school-aged children in the next decade; therefore, school construction is too risky at this time.

10. Creating a dog park on company grounds would benefit the company in several ways.

  5. Please go back and read the definitions of each of those terms again. #s 1, 6, and 10 are correct, but you have too many of the others incorrectly marked. Please review those seven and let us know what you decide.

    Practical -- "you have a specific action in mind and try to convince your audience that it should take this action"

    Conceptual -- "you want your audience members to change beliefs and attitudes" (I take this to mean there's no specific action indicated; just the overall idea, hoping the audience will change beliefs.)

  6. The way you explained conceptual makes more sense-just the overall idea, hoping the audience will change beliefs. Now it is starting to click. Thank You for all your help. It is greatly appreciated.
