          Guidelines for Revised Essay
    Final Draft must be a SUBSTANTIAL
      revision of the draft you wrote in unit 6.
    Arguments should be defended-remember
      that the goal in persuasion is to convince
      your audience of the value of your
      position.
    Consider and respond to counter arguments
    Aim for strong, clear, readable sentences.

          Guidelines for Multi-Modal
                 presentation
    The audience for this presentation of your
     ideas is WIDER than the audience of your
     actual paper.
    How will this affect the presentation of
     information?




5
                       Reflection Piece
    You will also write a reflection piece that answers the
      following questions in paragraph form:
    • What did you learn about yourself as a writer? As a
      thinker?
    • What did you learn about the process of writing?
    • What skills did you develop that might help you in the
      future?
    • What did you take from the larger conversation with
      others?
    • How did your feedback from peers and your instructor
      affect the revision of your blueprint, letter to the editor,
      and presentation?

6
        What about YOUR presentation?
    • What is your plan?
    • What is your purpose?
    • What format will you use to convey information?
    • How will FORMAT affect the way you present
      your information?
    • How will your audience affect the way you
      present your information?
    Share your plans for the final project. Offer your
      classmates advice.

                    An Example

    Food, Inc.
    Analyze the audience and purpose of this
     presentation of information.
    What are the purpose and how is it accomplished?
    How is the audience addressed?
    How does the METHOD of presentation affect how
     this information is given to the audience?



8
                   Questions?

    Let’s open the seminar up to any questions
     you may have about the final project
     requirements.
    Remember that there is NO seminar in unit
