In 1250-1500 words, write a reflective analysis to accompany the final draft of your multimodal video project that details your composing process and analyzes your rhetorical choices. I’ll expect that you’ll use the terminology and theory we’ve discussed in class up to that point and that you used in your rhetorical analyses. Please address the following questions:
- Describe your composing process for this project. Were you able to draw on the skills you’ve learned in other projects this semester? How was it similar to or different from other, more traditional, argumentative assignments?
- What did your project argue? What action does it inspire your audience to take? How did you arrive at this argument, and how is it different from the other arguments you’ve made in this class? What rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) did you use to make these arguments?
- Who is your intended audience? How did you design your argument to suit this audience?
- How would you describe your project’s genre? Why was this most suitable for your audience and purpose?
- What research did you draw on/incorporate? Given all the research you’ve done on your focal topic this semester, how did you choose what to emphasize for your audience and what to leave out?
- Describe the elements of your video project. How did you decide to arrange your project? How did you use audio, text, still images, and/or video footage? Is any of this material copyrighted, and if so, does your use of it fall under fair use guidelines?
- Detail a circulation plan for your video. Where would you post it? How would you attract attention from your target audience so that they will see and potentially share this video?
- What part of this project are you most proud of and/or what did you work the hardest on? Where did you struggle?
- Is there anything else about your project/process that you want to express?
Remember, this is worth 75 points and is due by the end of the day on XX (post to your google drive along with your finished project).
