Importance of PACC

Importance of PACC-Purpose.Audience.Context.Content
1)We can differentiate what kind of tone and register, whether it is informal or formal by finding the motive on why you are having the conversation. Finding out who is listening to you, who you are talking to and what you are talking about.
2)”Really? I have a different view, do you guys want me to share it?”/”I don’t really find this view correct, in my opinion...”
3)People will laugh or just accept the mistake.

  1. 1)It is PACC when communicating because the register(formal or informal) will depend on the audience. Tone depends on purpose and context so, we will not be able to communicate using the right tone and register if we are unaware of the purpose, audience and the context.
    2)If I oppose a certain view, then I must let the whole class know in polite manner. The register needs be formal and the tone needs to be firm and respectful(not offending or demeaning). For content, phrases like "I beg to differ", "In my humble opinion", etc. may be used. Proper reasons should be provided. Last but not least, we must listen to what the others have to say.
    3)If tone and register are used wrongly, the end result of the discussion may be disastrous. We need to keep in mind that even though we may hold a different view point from the rest of the classmates, we need to be respectful, polite yet firm. We cannot under any circumstances, hurt or demean others(in this case our friends) so, the discussion made a fight/quarrel which in turn will damage relationship
