    Hi all!

    For homework, answer these questions:
    1) What is the call to action (thesis) from your research paper?
    2) What are three potential genres that you might choose for your remix project? Why would these be a good fit?
    3) Does any one genre stick out to you most of all?
    4) Do you have any model texts that you might use to help you create the remix? (for example, if you want to make a photo essay, have you seen any photo essays that you might want to use as a sample as you create your own?) Feel free to post links for model texts!

    1. My call to action thesis was after school staff members should get training for working with students who are a part of iep.
    2. Three potential genres would be a psa, PowerPoint, or a photo essay. These stuck out to me best because I’m big on visuals mainly and some audio.
    3. The psa really sticks out the most because it incorporates both audio and visual. Another reason why is because it’s straight to the point.
    4. Yes, I do have some examples. I’ve been looking at the way the company truth does their public service announcements. https://youtu.be/loLpcd7gqNE

    1) My call to action is that people should try to sit down with the toxic members of the One Piece community and try and see if they can help them become less toxic.
    2) I might choose between making a speech, a comic, or a photo essay because will give me a chance to express my thoughts on the subject however I want.
    3) comic sticks out the most being how creative you can be while drawing the comic.
    4) For the comics genre, Webtoons will be a big help in learning how to draw the comic hopefully https://www.webtoons.com/en/

    1. My call to action thesis is my discourse community has the bear with effects of gun violence and my call to action is offering many services to support people (who feel as If they have to pick up a gun to solve there problems) like a community center or mental health services, and as a community people have to stand up and make their voice heard enough is enough.
    2. Three genres that would work would be a power point prestation, oral and visual podcast, or a blog.
    3. The power point sticks out to me the most because I think that standing up and making awareness to this issue in my discourse community and ways that may improve it is a wonderful way to get a message across.
    4. As of now I currently do not have any model text that might help me create my remix, but I’m actively researching.

    3- One of the genres that stick out the most is the photo essays
    4- I don’t have any specific one yet

    1. My call to action was understanding college working students. Why do we need to pay to receive an education. How can we help students balance work and their studies.
    2. Three potential genres that I might consider using would be a PowerPoint, photo essays these two are more visual, and maybe a poster( more information).
    3. The one that sticks out the most is the photo essays it would be nice to have a photo and underneath information. (Have a photo of student) underneath their student.
    4. I found this link helpful to help me create a photo essay https://www.redesignu.org/design-lab/performance-tasks/photo-essay

    1. My call to action these is to incorporate sports/ co-curricular activities in city tech
    2. Three potential genres would be a photo essay, film , or power point. These would be a good fit because, it gets to capture the differences between other schools and city tech.
    3. The genre that sticks out most is probably a film because it gives you perspective on the major differences
    4. This gives me an idea of the type of film but I’m not entirely stuck on the idea https://iloveps.org/films/the-mind-inside-episode-one

    1) My call to action is to bring back the Tribunal into league of legends and end toxicity in ranked matches.
    2) Instagram photo posts, Vlog, and a youtube edited video on toxic gameplay. Each would be able to bring my paper to light and actually be a bit more entertaining and memorable than my paper.
    3) The instagram post seems easier to do as well as execute. It will also bring a social connection and potentially humor.
    4) The example given by you in class for humans of ny is definitely the approach I am inspired by.

    1) My call to action is for gamers to give more money to independent companies, and for game developers to promote in-game purchases less.
    2) Three genres I’m interested in using are videos, photo essays, and posters because the audience would be more easily informed if they saw what I talked about visually instead of text.
    3)The one genre that sticks out to me the most is the genre of video.
    4) Some examples of this genre that I would be able to use are “Pack opening” videos from NBA 2K Youtubers. This would help me show the unnecessary amount of money that is being spent by gamers in order to receive a virtual item (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xVUcDxIuqc).

    1. My call to action is, in order for car culture to thrive we must get rid of the hate between each other and our individual ideas.
    2. I believe a documentary, picture essay, or even a podcast could be really good for my remix project. Each of these give a chance for audio/visual representation of what hate looks like in the car world.
    3. A documentary would be fun to do because I can talk about what I see going on, reference videos with small clips about what is happening, include an interview.
    4. I have a few documentaries already that I was using in my call to action that will work perfectly.

    1) My call to action as presented in my essay is to provide more transparency between artist and exhibit sponsors.
    2) The three genres that stick out to me the most are the power point slide, comic, and photo essay.
    3)The comic genre sticks out to me the most since I’m discussing the topic of artists.
    4) Yes, there are many sources where I can get information on how to make a comic. So far the website deviant art is my runner-up for that sort of information since that community is strictly art-based.
