This is the post for the week of October 27, 2015.
Readings for the week of October 27
For this week, please read the following as needed:
- Genre Analysis Report Assignment (Due 11/30, 1-week grace period)
- Genre Analysis Examples
- Genre Analysis Proposal Assignment (Due 11/2, 2-day grace period)
- Genre Analysis Progress Report Assignment (Due 11/9, 2-day grace period)
Work for the week of October 27
Choose your focus for Project 4, following the advice in Step One of the assignment. Consider the various kinds of writing you can examine in your report, and choose one that you have not yet written in your career but that you want to know how to write.
Write your proposal, following the instructions on the Genre Analysis Proposal page. If you need an extension, take advantage of the 2-day grace period for daily work. The proposal is an important part of the process, since it makes sure that you’re on the right track before you dive into writing the actual report, which is worth 30% of your course grade.
Begin your research for the project, and be sure to keep track of your sources for your bibliography. This is a large project, so I encourage you to work steadily over the next month, rather than waiting until the last minute.
- If you need to ask any questions before you write your proposal or have any other questions about the assignments, send me an email message.
