In many cases, knowing who the writer is writing for or to helps in the writing process. Is this a story for children or a report for a employer? The students’ knowledge of their readers will in such cases determine the best voice, or how the words are said, just as the audience will determine what is said. If the students can keep their audience, or readers, in mind they will be able to “speak” their words with greater intensity.
