Mexico – power point and brochure

ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS: Your team, a travel group specializing in group travel to exotic locations, is responsible for creating a presentation to interested clients, who will essentially choose to travel with you…or ‘the other guys.’ Your goal is to inform the group about all the aspects of your chosen travel destination by immersing the group in the culture and communication styles of this country. Your ultimate goal is to make the class feel as if we are a part of the culture you are presenting through visual and auditory sensations. This will require you to use decorations, and possibly even incorporate music, food, and even language. You also must include a visual element (photos via POWERPOINT, PREZI, possibly a promotional video, etc. to accompany the presentation). Also, know about the CUSTOMS of the country. And it is permissible to have the class (potential travel group) do just about anything you want us to do—we can take off our shoes, sit on the floor, dance, go out of the classroom…BE CREATIVE! Each group has 40 minutes-1 hour to present. You want to use all of this time and not run short. Everyone in the group must talk for equal amounts of time.

PROFESSOR’S COMMENTS: Really intriguing work, Silvana. While I think you try to at points move too fast (not fully developing your claims) or too slow (a bit too much background), overall you raise good points and try to tackle big things in this paper. Your scope is perhaps too big for a paper this size, but I deeply value your efforts and care in this work. Purpose (37/40 points): The author calls the audience’s attention to the issue, analyses the issues from a rhetorical perspective, and uses research to back up the analysis; Context (18/20 points): The project demonstrates a clear sense of the rhetorical situation, including meeting the needs and expectations of the audience; Organization (19/20 points): Purpose is clear for the essay and for each paragraph of the essay; Document Design (10/10 points): The document is designed with the audience in mind and represents information accurately; Mechanics (9/10 points): There are no noticeable spelling or grammar errors.

defining rhetoric – 3 step project

ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS: The main purpose for this assignment is to produce a class definition of rhetoric that represents the various viewpoints and ideas of our class. To do this, you will begin by individually writing a 2-page paper that defines rhetoric. You have some latitude in how you complete this 2-page paper. You might write an encomium or an invective. You might also write a dramatic Platonist dialogue between people to illustrate a point. Whatever the approach you choose for the short paper, keep in mind it will be remediated into larger documents through an extended negotiation with your peers. The penultimate goal for is to create a document that can serve as an ongoing theoretical and practical resource for you to use as you continue your education.

ENC3371 Rhetoric Practice & Theory.
PROFESSOR’S COMMENTS: Nice work. A very elegant approach and interesting throughout. There are some missteps, some things overlooked, etc., but overall this is a strong approach to rhetoric that I enjoyed quite a bit. If I were to point to one thing that stood out negatively, it would be how easily/simply you laid out a definition (and not the most nuanced of ones) and how you skimmed over the rich history of definitions and ideas that have given rhetoric its shape today. I assume you wanted to streamline your time/space and you wanted to take a more practical approach– both good ideas –but I’ll admit to missing the history of rhetoric. Aside from that, and a few errors, this was a particularly strong and enjoyable approach. I loved your uses of examples, your clear and easy prose, your overall approach. Well done.

rhetorical analysis – vw beetle ad

ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS: For this paper, you will rhetorically analyze a text of your choosing. Your rhetorical analysis must explain how the text was constructed to impact its audience. You should start by analyzing the images, music, or text of the composition. How did the author use aspects to create a tone/mood? How did the author organize the text to establish appeals to ethos, pathos and/or logos? Is the text meant to be persuasive? What is the text’s purpose or goal? What genre is the text? What is the occasion or reason this text exists? Who is the audience for this text? Be sure that your rhetorical analysis presents a thesis statement (an OPINION in the form of a STATEMENT that needs EVIDENCE to support it). What Course Outcomes Am I Working On? • Apply rhetorical theory through developing an analytical framework; • Analyze rhetorical principles, ideas, or concepts in public or professional texts; • Develop a rhetorical language for thinking broadly about communication; • Use rhetorical theory to inform writing decisions, including issues of style.

PROFESSOR’S COMMENTS: Excellent work, Silvana.
