Context Summary: For Wednesday, the 22nd, you should write a 1-2 page draft of your context summary. This summary should be posted on-line.
Draft1: For Friday the 24th, each student should bring in a draft of each of their sides. The drafts, at a minimum, should be a 10 minute free-write that includes a preliminary visual. The key for the draft is conveying the message and persona for each side. You may experiment with the medium for the side as well (i.e., its format, context, and accompanying layout) but this is not mandatory. Post your draft under your personal work unless it is best represented printed out -- in which case, bring one print out to class in addition to storing it on PanFora.
Draft2: For Monday the 27th, each student should bring a "dress rehearsal" of their multiple sides project to class -- a thorough mock-up of the project, complete with images and design -- although you may print it in b/w. At this time, you should also bring drafts of your introductory and concluding frames for peer review. Bring one print out to class of your entire project.
Revision: Each "side" should be a position paper approximately 2-3 pages academic pages in length (approximately 600-900 words); this length (but not word count) might change when you format it as a popular article. The introductory frame will be between 1 paragraph and 1 page long; the concluding contextual analysis should be 1-2 pages in length.
The different sides should be
produced in a format consistent (as far as you are technically capable)
with its context - i.e. an essay from the Daily should be in
multiple columns, with an appropriate header and footer and use of visuals.
You must use at least one visual in each side in a rhetorically effective
manner. You should site your secondary sources; if that is inappropriate
for your context (i.e., a Newsweek article rarely contains footnotes
or parenthetical documentation) you should include a brief works cited
list in your concluding frame.
The Multiple Sides Popular Article Project is graded as a portfolio: in other words, while you will receive comments on each individual side, it is your overall project that is assessed when composing your grade.
To clarify: Your final Multiple Sides portfolio (which should be turned in in an actual portfolio or folder as well as posted on-line) should contain 1) the introductory frame; 2) the three "sides"; 3) the concluding frame 4) your (revised) context summary. This project is worth 20% of your grade for the class.
