Question

Question;week 1 discussionThe Brand of You (graded)As discussed in this week?s lecture, the Brand of You is created from the perception you give others through your writing. In creating the brand of you, how do you decide what to tell, how to tell it, and what to leave out? If given the task of introducing your personal brand through writing, what specific characteristics or attributes of yourself would you share? What stories would serve to provide the greatest impact? What memories would be the most telling in introducing who you are?Though we?ll work to answer these questions throughout the week, let's do a concrete exercise to get started: First, in seven words, tell us who you are and what you do. Try to draft a phrase that serves as our introduction to you (see examples below). Place this phrase in the subject line of your response post and then provide us with details to show us how this title represents your personal brand. Using vivid, concrete, descriptive words, share an example, anecdote, or scenario that brings your personal brand to life for your audience and provides an impression of who you are. This example should be written as the content of your actual post and should, at minimum, be at least one full paragraph.Here are some examples of seven-word biographies:Hopeless romantic infatuated with all movie starsCreative entomologist enjoys bees, hives, and honeyDesperate Facebook user needs to go outsideDiscovering an Angle (graded)Spend some time searching online news sources, such as npr.org, cnn.com, msnbc.com, or your own local news outlet. Although it?s often hard to find topics that are entirely new, the key to communicating a topic through writing is to present it with a fresh angle. What topics are you finding in the news today? What new angles are being presented? What current events or social changes have prompted these new angles? (Please be sure to include a URL with your post. If you use exact phrases or sentences from your chosen article, be sure to place that information in quotation marks.)This section lists options that can be used to view responses.week 2 discussionThe Profile Genre (graded)Please read Carl Wilkinson?s profile, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, on pages 622?626 of your text. What writing techniques does Wilkinson use to meet the profile genre? How do these strategies help establish meaning, and what impression do they leave about Grohl? (Be sure to be specific in your response, pointing to areas of the text and noting both page and paragraph numbers.)Getting Started Writing (graded)Drawing on one of the strategies for writing introductions outlined in your text or the lecture, post a draft of your introductory paragraph(s) as your first post. Then, throughout the week, reply to your classmates with feedback on their introductory paragraphs. Note how or whyweek 3 discussionive Messages (graded)What makes an ad succeed or flop? Think about specific print or television advertisements that have either stuck with you or made you turn your eyes, and explain what works or what doesn?t. In your response, be sure to consider the impact the rhetorical appeals of reasoning, credibility, and emotion play in the ad?s effectiveness.\Writing With Style (graded)In what ways do people adopt a particular writing style or voice? How does your style or voice change in different writing situations? Please share an example in your response.week 4 discussionThe Role of Truth in Ad Campaigns (graded)Read Discovering the Truth: The Operation of Ethos in Anti-Smoking Advertising,by Rebecca Feldmann, on pp. 678?685 in your text. In this essay, Feldmann dissects the way the Truth antismoking campaign has achieved results by appealing to a teenage audience?s need for independence and rebellion. She notes that the campaign?s strategy has encouraged teens to stand up against the smoking industry. By accepting Truth?s agenda, however, Feldmann asks, ?how is the advertising strategy of the Truth campaign that different from the deceiving strategies employed by tobacco advertising?? (p. 684).On YouTube or through an Internet search, find the Truth website and some of its antismoking videos. After learning more about the organization and viewing some of its ads, what is your response to the question Feldmann poses above?Revising and Refining (graded)Conduct a self-analysis of a portion of your essay. In your first response post, copy and paste the paragraph of your Rhetorical Analysis essay that describes your chosen advertisement. After you have posted the paragraph, explain how you might revise specific sentences to include more vivid details so that readers can better see what you are writing about. As peers, please also reply to some of your classmates? posts, providing feedback on what is working well and any suggestions you might give for more vivid description.an introduction caught your attention and explain what impression it gives you about the essay?s larger purpose. Also explain how your classmate?s voice, tone, or diction contributes to the overall effectiveness of the introduction.eek 5 discussionForming a Position (graded)Let?s use our discussion forum as a space to practice writing and to determine the viability of possible topics. To begin, find a topic that is currently in the news and provide us with some brief background (the who, what, when, where,and howof the topic). Then continue your summary by explaining the positions others hold on the topic. What do the true believers of the issue think? What do the ultimate doubters have to say? Finally, what is your position on the issue? Remember: The best topics aren?t just focused on pro/con debates. Though this activity asks you to look at the extreme sides of the issue, your opinion might fall somewhere in the middle or contain elements of each side.Beginning Research (graded)This week?s assignment asks you to begin researching your chosen topic and to summarize other perspectives on your issue. Begin by reviewing the library tutorial from the class lecture. Then use the Academic Search Premier database via the DeVry Library to begin searching for sources. Once you have found a source, summarize it in a post below. Then discuss the credibility of the source by identifying the author?s background, credentials, and relationship to the topic. Make an overall assertion regarding whether or not the source is credible, and explain why. Finally, use the APA resources in class and Chapter 28 in your text to write out the full reference of the source, and include that in your post.week 6 discussionPosition-Based Writing (graded)Please read ?A Gay Man?s Case Against Gay Marriage? by Michael Bronski on pages 687?690 of your text. Then reply with your analysis of the rhetorical situation of the essay. What is Bronski?s reason for writing? What is his purpose and angle? Who do you think his audience might be? Finally, think about the writing strategies Bronski uses to achieve his overall purpose. Based on our discussions of commentary and argumentative writing, what strategies do you think he relies upon to present his position?Integrating Research in APA Style (graded)Last week, you were introduced to the Academic Search Premier database through the library tutorial in your lecture. Because you are drafting this week, share one paragraph with us here that shows how you?ve integrated a source into your writing. The source should be summarized, paraphrased, or directly quoted. Additionally, an in-text citation and author tag should be present. Finally, provide the full end reference in APA style with us here as well. This is not only practice for drafting this week, but it?s also a good way to receive some feedback from your peers on your writing.week 7 dissThe Revision Process (graded)Reflect upon the draft you submitted last week.

For instructions on how to use the Dropbox, read theseThe Commentary Context Revision and PostscriptThe concepts of genre, process writing, audience, and personal influence have been common themes throughout this course, and the final assignment asks you to demonstrate your knowledge in these areas. To do so, you will rework your Commentary essay into a short document that will either be submitted as a letter to the editor to a specified publication, or published as a blog post. Your goal is not to summarize your entire essay for this new context, but to instead share one important point as an addition to the public conversation. As you review the Commentary essay final you submitted last week, think about the most important point you would leave with readers if you had only a limited amount of time to express yourself, that one main point is where you?ll want to focus this revision assignment.To begin, think about where you originally came across your topic or the different publications that you chose as sources for your Commentary essay. In doing so, select one of the contexts for revision below.Letter to the Editor: You are likely somewhat familiar with this genre because it is a common inclusion in the opinion section of a newspaper, magazine, or news site. Newspaper editors publish the submissions of readers who share their opinions on current topics as part of the ongoing public conversation. Normally, a letter to the editor is a direct response to an article that was recently published in the paper. If one of the publications you used in your research for the Commentary essay includes a Letter to the Editor section, it is likely a good choice for your chosen context for this assignment. Please review pp. 186?187 of your text for further information about letters to the editor.Blog Post: If you already have a blog or would like to create one, this is your opportunity to use this genre to share a main point from your Commentary essay for a wider public audience. Be sure to review Chapter 29 in your text for more information about Blogs.Your public response should include the following elements.Brief summary of issue to provide context for readers, if you are writing a letter to the editor, remember that you are responding to a specific story or article that was published (likely one of your sources from the Commentary essay).A precise thesis that provides your clear purpose, whether it is to agree or disagree with a point previously published (in the Letter to the Editor) or to provide a main point of your position.Support through personal experiences or factual evidence.A professional tone and style that does not attack or berate, but is instead reasoned and respectful.Assignment RequirementsYour Blog Post or Letter to the Editor should be approximately 250 words.It should use APA format for in-text citations and an end References page for any included sources.The essay should be typed and submitted as a Microsoft Word 2010 document (.docx), with 12-point font and double spacing. Due to meeting the standards of the publication, a title page is not required.Following your Blog Post or Letter to the Editor, please write a brief statement that explains where you intend to publish your writing. If you are writing a Blog Post, post it to your site and include the URL in your assignment submission. If you are writing a Letter to the Editor, include the name of the specific publication to which you will submit.IMPORTANT POSTSCRIPT ADDITION:In addition to submitting your revision, please also complete a brief postscript (one to two paragraphs), written in first person, to address the questions below. Include this postscript after your References page in your assignment submission this week.How did you determine what main point to share from your Commentary essay in the revision activity?What changes did you make in your writing style as you revised the essay for a new audience and context?What new insights have you gained on your Commentary topic throughout the process of drafting, researching, and revising?Please be sure to review the rubric for this week?s assignment in Doc Sharing.See the Syllabus section "Due Dates for Assignments & Exams" for due date information.Su
