Module 2 Discussion

Rhetorical Analysis Peer Review

Peer review is an important part of the writing process because it gives us an opportunity to gain insights and feedback from outside readers. Essentially, peer review offers us a chance to test out our writing on an audience in a very low-stress way. As a peer reviewer, remember you do not have to be an expert writer to offer feedback to someone.

Offer Your Initial Thoughts

In your initial post, share the rough draft of your rhetorical analysis essay.  This essay is described in M2A1: Rhetorical Analysis and will be turned in on Sunday.

Your initial post is due by Tuesday at 11:59 PM EST.  You will not be able to see posts written by your classmates until you create your initial post.

Connect With Classmates

Please read the Sample Rhetorical Analysis (Links to an external site.) from St. Louis Community College; this will help you target your feedback to your peers.

Select one of the posts which have not yet received peer feedback. After carefully reading the essay, please address the following questions in your response:

How does the author present the purpose of the essay? Is it effective? What advice do you have for making sure the purpose of the essay is clear?

How does the author clearly address the following rhetorical principles (in both discussion and example)?

Purpose

Audience

Ethos

Pathos

Logos

Is the essay well organized for you as a reader? Explain your response.

Did you notice any issues of clarity or any errors that impacted your understanding of the essay? If so, be sure to point out a specific example(s).

What do you see as the strengths of your classmates’ rhetorical analysis essay? Be specific.

Remember, you do not have to be an expert writer to provide quality peer review feedback. You will be sharing your thoughts as an informed reader, and your classmate will then be able to consider this feedback during the revision process.

Module 3 Discussion

Practicing Genre in Social Media

Let's Talk About Writing

Before You Begin

Before you begin this discussion, be sure to review the reading materials this Module on writing expectations in certain genres. Then, think about how you use genre conventions in your own life, when you write a text, make a Facebook post, or send out a tweet on Twitter.

Offer Your Initial Thoughts

For this discussion, you are required to write three sentences or passages for different genres. The sentences can be on any topic you choose, but you will be writing the same sentence in three different ways. Just make sure the content is appropriate to share with the class.

First, you should write it as a semi-formal sentence or passage that you might share with classmates and professors in a college class.

Second, you should share the same content as a text message written to someone you are very close to. If you would like to share a screenshot of a text that includes emojis, please feel free to do so.

Finally, share the same message as you would on social media. You can choose a Facebook post, a Tweet, or an Instagram post. Just be sure to specify which social media platform you chose and include the image if you have one.

Your initial post is due by Thursday at 11:59 PM EST. You will not be able to see posts written by your classmates until you create your initial post.

Connect With Classmates

In your peer responses, review the three passages and evaluate them based on genre conventions.

What differences do you see in the passages?

What kinds of content and style decisions did the student author make in the posts?

What did you learn about genre conventions from your analysis of these three passages?

Module 4 Discussion

The Ingredients of Research

Let's Talk About Writing

Before You Begin

Before you begin this discussion, review the assigned reading for this module, Walk, Talk, Cook, Eat: A Guide to Using Sources (Links to an external site.) by Cynthia Haller.

Offer Your Initial Thoughts

For this discussion, you are going to consider possible research scenarios. The scenarios can be from real life, work, or your academic courses (like the examples provided on pages 204-206 of the Haller article). In your initial post, create a research scenario for your classmates to respond to.

Here are some sample research scenarios to give you some ideas as you work to create an original scenario for your initial post:

You are hoping to purchase a new car by the end of the year, and you want to consider a wide variety of factors including budget, safety, reliability, and gas mileage.

Your company has asked you to be a part of a committee to help research a new location in the United States for a branch office. Sales take place online, so sales are not a factor. However, your committee must consider the cost of living, quality of living, and cost of office space.

In your economics class, you are being asked to write a paper analyzing the factors that led to the financial crisis of 2008. You are required to use at least one scholarly source and at least one popular source.

Your initial post is due by Thursday at 11:59 PM EST. You will not be able to see posts written by your classmates until you create your initial post.

Connect With Classmates

Respond to the posts of at least two of your fellow students. Your response posts should use the model from the Haller article (pp. 204-206), describing the ingredients, processes, and product you would use to carry out the research project described in your classmates’ scenarios. Remember, there are many ways to approach a research scenario, so you may have different responses than your classmates, even if you chose the same scenarios.

Module 5 Discussion

Selecting a Topic

Let's Talk About Writing

Offer Your Initial Thoughts

During Module 5, you will choose a topic for your research essay due at the end of Module 6. Please follow the steps below before making your initial discussion post. In your post, you will communicate the topic and question that you have developed by going through this process.

Step 1: Start by identifying a topic, issue, or problem related to your field of academic study or your work. Since your research essay must persuade your audience of something, rather than merely providing them with information, it is important to select a topic or problem that does not have a simple, easy answer. Since your research essay should be 4-5 pages long, make sure that you select a topic that can be covered well in this amount of space. If your topic is too broad, you may need to focus on just one part of it. If your topic is too narrow, you may need to select a different topic where there is more to write about.

Step 2: Do some preliminary research on your topic by searching for related terms (keywords) using the OneSearch function on the Excelsior Library Web site. (Links to an external site.) One way to find good sources is to check the box under the OneSearch entry field next to the words “Limit to Peer Reviewed Journals.” If you are having trouble finding high-quality sources, contact the Excelsior College Librarians. (Links to an external site.) They should be able to help you with this.

Step 3: Finally, you should develop a research question based on your topic. Your research question is the question that your research essay will attempt to answer. For example, if your research topic is clinical depression, you might use one of the following research questions:

What causes clinical depression?

What is the impact of clinical depression on the American economy?

What role does depression play in the educational achievement of American school children?

Notice how each of the examples above takes the broad topic (clinical depression) and narrows the focus to something that is more manageable in a short research paper. There are many ways to narrow down this topic:

You could focus on depression in one particular population group (teenagers, college students, postpartum mothers, women, men, the elderly, etc.).

You could focus on a particular environment (the military, schools, businesses, etc.).

You could focus on different aspects of depression: causes, effects, treatments, etc.

You could focus on one particular theory or approach, for example, cognitive behavioral therapy and the treatment of depression.

Once you have worked through the three steps above on your own, make an initial post in this week’s discussion. In your initial post, include the following:

Share your research essay topic with the class.

Share your process of preliminary research that led you to choose this topic. What research did you do, and what kinds of sources did you find?

At the end of your first post, share your research question for that topic.

Your initial post is due by Thursday at 11:59 PM EST. You will not be able to see posts written by your classmates until you create your initial post.

Connect With Classmates

Respond to at least two classmates providing feedback on their research essay topics. Do the research topic and question fit the assignment requirements? If so, why? If not, why not? You may also offer tips or suggestions for how to find good sources, based on your experiences during the week.

Module 6 Discussion

Drafting and Revision

Let's Talk About Writing

Offer Your Initial Thoughts & Connect with Classmates

In this discussion assignment, you will be engaging in a formal peer review process for your research essay assignment. Remember, you do not have to be an expert writer in order to provide sound feedback as a reader on someone else’s writing. Also, as a writer, remember that your peer review feedback is for you to consider as you revise. Ultimately, the changes you make to your essay are up to you as a writer.

In your initial post, include the rough draft of your research essay as an attachment. Be sure to attach your paper as a Word file. In the body of your message, write a short memo to your classmates providing two pieces of information:

Where are you in the drafting process? What are your known struggles?

What specific areas would you like a peer reviewer to focus on in your essay?

Your initial post is due by Tuesday at 11:59 PM EST. You will not be able to see posts written by your classmates until you create your initial post.

As soon as you post your essay, please find an essay posted by one of your peers and respond to their post with the comment "I will review this essay." You do not have to review it at that time; you are just signing up for the review. This helps guarantee that everyone's essay is peer-reviewed. Please do not sign up for an essay which has already been "claimed."

The next step is to review your peer's essay. Please read the memo in the initial post and then the attached paper. Complete the peer review CARES formPreview the document and respond to the questions in the memo written by your classmates. Peer review feedback is due by Friday at 11:59 PM EST.

Module 2 Assignment  

Rhetorical Analysis

For this assignment, you are required to complete a rhetorical analysis of one of the following texts. You should choose just one of these for your rhetorical analysis.

Barker, D., & Pollen, M. (2015, December 15). A secret weapon to fight climate change: Dirt. (Links to an external site.) The Washington Post.

What is the context for the argument being presented?

Who is the target audience? How do you know? How does the author appeal to that audience?

What is the author’s tone of voice in the essay? It is effective? How do you know?

How does the author appeal to ethos, pathos, and logos? Be sure to cite specific examples from the text.

How does the author convey their attitude toward the subject at hand in the article?

How does the author handle opposing views, if applicable?

Ultimately, your goal as a writer in the rhetorical analysis is to make an argument about the effectiveness of the author in the piece. Is the piece effective or ineffective? The questions above will help you support your points.

Please make sure that you quote frequently from the text in support of your argument.

Before you write, be sure to review the sample rhetorical analysis (Links to an external site.) essay located in the Excelsior College OWL. The notes within the sample essay will help you better understand the conventions and requirements of a rhetorical analysis essay.

Module 7 Assignment  

Presentation or Photo Essay Assignment

For this assignment, you are to use your argument and research from your research paper assignment and present that information visually to an audience. You may choose to create a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation, or you may choose to create a photo essay.

Your presentation or photo essay should include the following elements, although you are not limited to these:

An introduction slide.

6-8 content slides.

A conclusion slide.

A slide for references (be sure to cite images as well).

For presentations, you should include at least 6 images or graphics. For a photo essay, each slide should include images or graphics.

*Please note that speaker notes are not required for this assignment.

Whether you choose a presentation or a photo essay, images will be required. These images must be open source, in the public domain, or otherwise legally available for your use. Many websites, including Google Image Search, offer freely available images of this type.

Google Image Search: (Links to an external site.) Enter a search term and Google will return images from all over the internet. In order to make sure that the images are usable for this project, click “Settings,” then “Advanced search.” Scroll down to “usage rights” and select “free to use or share.” Then click on the blue “Advanced Search” button. This will filter your search to include only images that are legally available for use.

Pay attention to the specific licenses associated with any images that you use. Images that are in the public domain and some Creative Commons images do not require any attribution. Other images may be available for use, but only if certain conditions are met, such as crediting the creator or using the image as-is without any changes. Here is a link to more information on the different Creative Commons licenses. (Links to an external site.)

You can read more about other sites with public domain images on 31 free public domain image websites (use with care). (Links to an external site.)

Remember, you will need to cite any images that you include using APA Style. These should be cited both on the slide where they are used and on a separate references slide at the end. Good citation habits that you learned about this term are important in presentations and photo essays as well. This FAQ (Links to an external site.) from Concordia University Portland provides guidelines for how to do this. You can also watch APA Formatting for powerpoint: How to Apply APA Style to PowerPoint Presentations (Links to an external site.) (5:21 minutes) by David Taylor.
