“My favorite assignment during this module was the evaluation project. This is because the topic of my project was the same as the topic for my paper, which made the module a whole lot easier. Furthermore, the topic of my project was very relatable to me….I was very interested in evaluating my topic.”
–English 105 student, Spring 2015
The quality of many students’ multimodal projects improved from the Rhetorical Analysis module. Based on my observations, here’s why:
- students are now more accustomed to writing on the blog
- they prepared for the project by brainstorming formats through a blog post that looked at other online reviews
- I floated around our lab day offering suggestions on the rough drafts
- based on a class vote, most of them prefer working individually on projects
