ENG1121 Composition II (D416), Spring 2020

ENG 1121 aims at further developing your reading, writing, and analytical skills while fostering awareness of your own literacy practices. Our focus will be to learn how to successfully asses and adapt to different writing contexts, also known as rhetorical situations. To this end, ENG 1121 provides you with ample opportunities to analyze the rhetorical choices of authors, and then practice authoring your own compositions in the writing styles and mediums that you deem are most effective, given the unique writing situation and the audience being addressed. Along the way, you will engage in metacognitive thinking, or personal reflection, about who you are as a writer, what your beliefs about writing have been and are becoming, what your personal process is, and how you might be able to transfer that process to other courses and even into the work world.

My Projects

Multimodal Project

Multimodal Project

In your final project you must re-think or re-envision the Inquiry-Based Research you gathered in Unit 2, presenting it in a totally new multimedia composition and targeting a new, specific audience of your choice. For example, a revision that goes from an annotated bibliography to an audio podcast, OpenLab Project website, 3-minute movie, or digital essay. This assignment builds on the generic, rhetorical and audience awareness that students have worked on all semester long, asking them to consider what discourse community they are trying to reach and, not only what diction, but also what mode of delivery would be best for delivering that message. This “translation” is key to transfer, one of the core learning outcomes of this course. If students can take a message and transform it for different audiences and media, then they are well on their way to being able to transfer writing skills across fields, disciplines and discourse communities. The project contains three parts: you will 1) convert your Inquiry-based Research Report into another medium, 2) write a Rhetorical Response that analyzes the rhetorical choices you made and conveys your understanding of the rhetorical situation, and 3) present your new media composition.
