ENGL 1020: Composition/Analysis
University of Memphis
Individual New Media Writing Assignment
When we produce an argument, many of the decisions we make are determined by the rhetorical situation. Thus, when the rhetorical situation changes, so will our argument. In this major Multimodal Composition, you will be revising your researched argument using one of the digital apps we learned during the New Media Group Project.
Length: If you make a video, it should be 3-5 minutes. If you make an infographic, it should be two pages.
You will need to include an MLA citation page in your presentation.
Caution: You are completely revising your argument for a new rhetorical situation. It will not be adequate to cut and paste from your Researched Essay Draft. Your tone, structure, word choice etc. should change to reflect the new situation. Also, be sure to check how long you have free access, so your trial doesn’t end before you finish your project.
Assessment: Per the syllabus, this project is worth 20% of your overall course grade.
