Transcript of ENGL 102: Public Argument, Presentations & Final

ENGL 102 Units 3&4: Public Argument, Presentations & Final
How I arrange units 3/4:
Public Argument: a written text
Final Unit = "revision" Presentation (multimedia) + "reflection" analysis
Public Argument = 20% of grade
Presentation = 5% of grade
Written Final = 15% of grade
(making Final unit = 20%)
NOTE: some examples shown here are older / may reflect different syllabi or requirements
Public Argument
The Public Argument is a written text. Students will choose:
what to argue (purpose)
who their audience is
what genre of writing to use

Give students a choice of "real-world" genres of writing:
blog post
web forum comment
facebook "note" (or long status)
letter to person in power
letter to the editor / guest opinion
blog post 2:
blog post 1:
letter to
in power:
Students transform their written public argument into a multimedia presentation (the "revision" part of the final exam)
new audience: classmates
5 minutes max
choice of multimedia genres
Genres / Options:
video: vlog, animation, slideshow, MovieMaker/iMovie, etc.
powerpoint or prezi
speech or performance
poster, poster series, brochure, infographic
a website
Audience Matters!
Students grade each other's presentations!
60/40 split, teacher's score can override
in-class writing credit for scoring others
scores are anonymous
excellent practice rhetorical analysis
don't have to score on the day you present (your brain is full, it's ok!)
knowing classmates are grading you increases attention to audience
Grading rubric / worksheets on WIRe
free resource for animated presentations (this!)
free & easy website building program

The Final "Reflection"
Slightly different from the "Reflection" in 101, this reflection is a rhetorical analysis of the student's own process:
students will analyze their own rhetorical choices as they created their Public Argument and then transformed it for a different audience and context and format.
can follow the model of Unit 1's Rhetorical Analysis (Essay or Memo)
example final:
*Students have had experience rhetorically analyzing these forms in Unit 1
