What I want to teach my audience is simply how to assess the situation around them and remind them of the precautions one must take to avoid becoming infected by the coronavirus. My audience would include anyone, just a general audience who may need reminders or information about keeping safe during the pandemic. My approach will most likely be something along the lines of a presentation with something that doesn’t look very dull (adding things to make it look not very serious/boring but still get the point across). I’m not too sure what I can do but I’ll just add in my own sense of humor and add small minor details, staying on track with the topic of coronavirus, yet being there for a completely different reason. I plan on just making a poster covering what should be done and how to assess one’s situation to determine their potential exposure to Covid-19. As for plans, I just want to start by making the poster look not dull by adding pictures and just trying to create an outline for myself to place parts of information within. I’ll fill out everything once I have an outline though finding the space to fit everything might become a problem. My concern so far is this assignment seems to demand creativity which I believe, while I am a bit of a creative person, I am not really capable of making anything that I can imagine, just not being capable of making something that looks spectacular, like the examples shown during the class session. Another concern I have is while this assignment is supposed to be more of a “fun” one and just something for us to be creative and make something in, I feel pressured by the unspecified amount of work that needs to be done since I’m not too sure what exactly I need to do (basically not too sure if my approach is appropriate but will be trying to make a poster).
This OpenLab site accompanies Jackie Blain’s synchronous ENG 1101 course for Fall 2020. The Course Materials are here (Assignments, Resources, How-to Videos) as well as the Class Discussion blogs. We’re all about writing in multiple digital and analogue situations, for multiple purposes… and investigating and talking about issues by asking questions. Lots of questions.
To get in touch with Prof Blain, either drop me a text on our Slack channel or email me at DBlain@citytech.cuny.edu.
