In , the Department of English at Purdue University asked Muriel "Mickey" Harris to establish a writing lab, a campus -based service designed to assist learners in their rhetorical writing processes. Harris began the writing lab by collaborating with a team of graduate assistants, who worked one-to-one with student writers and often developed handouts to reinforce the lessons the students learned in the writing lab.

The writing tutors and Harris sent paper copies of their materials to individuals beyond Purdue University who contacted the writing lab requesting information on writing, citation, or research.

Writing test is one of the module. I need some one to validate my writing skill, can you please validate the following email writing and send your feedback.

I have written answer for two questions, please validate both of them. You work in a very big office. There is a popular and cheap restaurant in the building. The boss is thinking of removing the restaurant and replacing it with a child care facility for the working mothers in the office. Your company has asked you to respond to an opinion survey. I think we should keep the restaurant. I think we should replace the restaurant with a child care facility. Having restaurant in our office premise is good option but I I feel the best option is to go for daycare facility for the working women in our office because the number of ladies working in our office is more and we know that they are struggling to take care of their kids.

Based on the review of past three years attendance we did in the last month, we observed that most of the time ladies are coming late to the office and leaving early. The reason told by them is they need to drop their kids in the daycare in the morning and pick them up in the evening. For example our accountant Kate has two kids, her husband is in travelling most of the time for his job. She is the one should take care of the kids, so many time she is facing issue in coming to office on time.

Moreover our office is in center of the downtown, we have many restaurants in just two minutes walk distance. Furthermore many of our employees bringing lunch from home having at our cafeteria.

So I suggest having daycare facility with subsidized rate for the working women in our office which will help them to improve their performance at work. You are a high school teacher. A student of yours has just graduated with excellent marks from high school. This person wants to find work. I am very happy and proud of you for the achievement you did in your high school annual exams.

Getting 10th rank in the province in high school exam is not simple task, you achieved it. Also I was delighted when you scored 3rd rank in the province in mathematics the subject I taught you. I know your family situation demands you to go for job immediately instead of doing higher studies but I suggest you to go for higher studied in university. You may get job based on your high school qualification but the salary will be very less and also the possibility of career growth is limited.

If you are getting university degree in specialized area the opportunities are wide open. Moreover based on my understanding you are capable of studying masters in mathematics and can join in some research institution because you have very good basic knowledge and problem solving skills in Maths.
