The article I chose was the one about the woman on the bus who was kicked off because her baby was too loud. I changed the audience, form, context, and purpose. I turned it into a rhyming children’s story. The audience became children ages 3-5. The form was a storybook. The context obviously changed to either a bedtime story, or book in a school library, or preschool. & the purpose changed to entertain and it also had a bit of a lesson.
I changed it to a children’s book because I thought that made the most sense. In my story when the “mean” bus driver finally tells the mother and daughter to get off the bus, they are only one block from their stop so kicking them out was basically pointless. & it also made the bus driver feel stupid, because she didn’t make their lives any harder; she just made herself look silly.
My language drastically changed. The words I used were much smaller and easier to understand. I also only put four lines on each page as to not seem too overwhelming to children who would try to read it. I also used pictures to compliment the story as well. I made the text in color so it was more appealing to children, and finally, I made the story rhyme so that it was more fun to read.
