Question

Question;Week 1 discussionThe Writing Process (graded)Your textbook describes genres as ?ways of writing and speaking that help people interact and work together? (Johnson-Sheehan & Paine, 2010, p. 2). List a few different genres in which you write (such as academic papers, text for social networks, business documents, diary entries, or poetry), select one, describe the specific kind of document you typically produce, and then discuss your process for creating that document.Essay Writing (graded)Your assignment this week is to write a draft of your rhetorical analysis. First, read this week's lecture. Then go to the search engine of your choice and search for this phrase: "vintage ads." Include the quotation marks to search for exactlythat phrase.Tell us about the ad you chose: name the product and the year the ad was published.Remember that the goal of advertising is to make you spend your money on products and services. Does the ad motivate you to buy the product or service?How does the ad useethos,pathos, orlogosto make you desire the product?Ethosrelies on the credibility or the authority of the ad itself ("I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV."),Pathosis an appeal to your emotions ("Coke adds life."),Logosis an appeal to your intellect (Ads that show great gas mileage numbers for a car appeal to your intelligence?they imply that you have the brains to buy the most efficient vehicle.).What elements create ethos, pathos, or logos in the ad that you chose? Discuss 2-3 elements that work to create therhetorical appeal(ethos,logos,pathos) that you detect. Some elements you might analyze areThe use of colorsThe appearance of people in the ad or their expressionsThe way the product is photographed or displayedWords used in the adHere is some advice. In your discussion:1) Avoid summarizing the ad?let's not look at the ad and describe it. Keep in mind that this is not a description paper.2) Avoid talking about your experience with the product or service depicted in the ad. Keep in mind that this is not a testimonial paper.Make sure that you are writing about how the ad makes you want to spend your money on a product or service. Ethos, pathos, logos...By working on this now, you will write material that you can use in your draft to turn in this week.Week 2 discussionRhetorical Analysis (graded)The purpose of ?rhetorical analysis? is to determine if, how, and why something is influential or not. As a consumer, you are exposed, every day, to messages designed to get you to buy a product or service. Select some kind of advertisement from television, radio, a magazine, or the Internet, briefly describe the message, and discuss its use of reasoning (logos), credibility (ethos), or emotion (pathos) in persuading you to take action.Analyzing (graded)Look at the draft of your working analysis paper and think about the overall topic, angle, and purpose. How well does the draft state what the topic is, describe some sort of fresh angle, and accomplish its intended purpose? Assess the draft?s strengths and weaknesses, and propose two ideas for revision that could help clarify the purpose, narrow the topic, or develop the angle.Week 3 discussionAudience (graded)If you were asked to create a brochure or give a short presentation on bicycle safety to a group of 4thgraders, how would you profile them, as an audience? What values would they have? How can you generalize them as an audience without stereotyping? What information might you need, in addition to the fact that they are fourth graders, in order to create an effective message for them?Week 4 discussionEvaluating Sources (graded)When using sources of information to support your own ideas, you are making your own writing more credible and believable. This way, your writing has more authority, but how do you know a source is credible and believable when you?re searching for sources of information to support your writing?Editing, Proofreading, and Citing (graded)As an improving writer, you are learning and employing many new strategies in every document you write. Working as a class, use this discussion area to create a revision, editing, and proofreading checklist for college students (and yourself) to use when writing academic papers that include citations in American Psychological Association (APA) style.Week 5 discussionOutlining (graded)This week you begin working on your final paper, the position paper. A position paper explains both sides of the issue, but argues one side over the other. After you have read Chapter 11 and this week?s lecture, choose your topic, one that has at least two clear points of view that can each be defended.To help you choose a topic, think about what issues have come up in your own life or what you have heard in the news lately. Consider topics that are controversial, like the topic of "social networking" in the lecture:Social Networking:Some feel that social networking is a valuable tool for communication.Others believe that it is a medium for cyberbullying and biased information.Do not choose topics that are moral or religious in nature (e.g. creationism vs. intelligent design), as sources will be inherently biased.In your own words, tell what you see as the two sides of the story:The point of view you wish to build upon about this topic and the supporting details you will use, andThe point of view that contradicts your point of view and the supporting details you will use.In this discussion, comment on one another's ideas, giving pointers so that you can each improve or take your paper in another direction. This is the time to ?bounce? ideas off each other. Other people might point out aspects of your topic that you never considered, and you could do the same for them.By working on this now, you will write material that you can use in your outline to turn in this week. The outline is the foundation of your position paper, so getting valuable feedback now will help you write a successful paper.Perspectives & Reactions (graded)After reading ?TV Watching: The Top Environmental Hazard for Children? by Todd Huffman, note your initial reactions to the essay. In one paragraph, record your strongest reaction to the essay and explain why you think you may have reacted that way. From what perspective are you reacting, that of a parent or that of a child? What factors outside of the essay might have influenced your reaction?Week 6 discussionPersuasion (graded)Earlier in the course, we discussed ethos, pathos, and logos in the context of advertisements, which are generally persuasive messages. Persuasion is a more general purpose, wherein one?s main goal might be ?to persuade? or it might be ?to justify,? ?to convince,? or "to argue.? To create an argument, you must begin with an arguable claim?one that is neither factually ?right? nor factually ?wrong? nor based solely on personal judgment. Of the many strategies for creating an effective argument is the practice of avoiding logical fallacies. Identify a logical fallacy and discuss, briefly, how its use could harm the integrity of an argumentWriting Process (graded)Describe how your writing process has evolved since the start of this course. Explain exactly what you are doing differently, and how the new practices have contributed to your overall improvement as a writer. Name one aspect of the writing process you still want to work on even after you complete this course.Week 7 discussionWriting to Print Vs. Writing for the Internet (graded)If you're asked to present information, you may have the option of oral or written delivery. Each medium has unique requirements. Further, where written information is concerned, print versus electronic texts also have unique characteristics. Please click on the link and read the attached essay,"Writing Style for Print vs. Web," by Jakob Nielson. What are the similarities and differences between writing for print and writing fEssay 1: Rhetorical Analysis DraftThis week, you will be working on the rough draft of the rhetorical analysis.

While the final draft of this paper is not due until the end of Week 4, you will submit a draft to your professor and to your peers in your assigned peer review discussion this week. Chapter 6 in our textbook discusses reviews: "The review is essentially an informed opinion based on common expectations that the average consumer tends to have for the kind of item under review. The reviewer elaborates on his or her experience by linking his or her opinions to these expectations and passing a final judgment" (Johnson-Sheehan & Paine, 2010, p. 124). To write a review, you set out the product or service that you're reviewing, your expectations for that product or service, and compare your expectations with what you actually got. Finally, pass judgment on the quality or capacity of your subject. A "product or service" includes anything for which you paid money and expected to receive something in exchange. Read the sample reviews in our text, and you'll see that some are about music albums or movies. Those are products of the entertainment industry. You can review music or a film yourself. Services include anything and everything from an oil, lube, and tire pressure check on your car to a memorable vacation at a resort in Vanuatu. Pick any product or service that you've experienced or used AND that left you with a clearly good or bad impression. To start, outline your expectations and how your subject met them: What did you want? What did you get? Next, outline the precise ways that your subject met or failed to meet expectations. Use specifics and details: explain exactly how your subject succeeded or failed. You should have a good start with your details, so begin drafting the essay. Name your product/service in the first paragraph so your reader identifies the subject. Establish your ethos by describing your background, your relationship to the product/service, the length of time you've used it or known about it. Establish your logos, too: in a thesis, tell what you expected and whether or not your subject met those expectations. The rest depends on specifics. Get into them. Write paragraphs that have one idea each and that tell, exactly, what the product/service did or did not do to meet your expectations. Your conclusion should either 1) reinforce your positive review of the product/service or 2) offer an alternative if you've written a negative review. Successful drafts will:1. Be 2-3 pages in length. 2. Follow APA formatting rules and referencing rules shown in the APA sample paper in Doc Sharing or here: https://hub2.devry.edu/node/258353.
