Audience – Fourth Graders
Main Point – Why It’s Important Younger Students don’t hate school and If they do, why should they keep going ?
The Genre is School – The reason is because school is most likely the most important thing going on in these 4th graders lives right now and being miserable and hating it isn’t going to help the time go by faster, in fact it’s the exact opposite.
Plan – My audience will be the 4th graders and the genre will be school. I know at this age most children hate school, they don’t want to be there and they have yet to realize just how important their education really is. I will use different multimodal strategies in order to push my main point that they shouldn’t hate school and why they should keep going. In order to do this i’ll start with Intro images and some explanations, A mad person hating school to relate to the students and explain I was also in the same place as them, a sick person in order to show how I got sick and explaining how it affected my education, a bored person to show how much more boring it was being home sick not doing anything, a sad person to show how sad I got when all my friends were graduating and I wasn’t.
Images – Money, cars, candy and food, a great job, a great family, most importantly no school!
These images will grab the kids attention and show that they can have whatever they want if they just keep going and not give up.
Day one – begin grabbing images that relate and start creating the slides and explanations for the images.
Day two – start creating the story so I can grab their attention and have them hooked on my story to then relate it back to them.
Day three – combine the images and writing together.
Day four – final changes / additions and submission.
