Today is the due date for Project 1. We’ll talk about the reflection memo and how to submit your project. While we will not talk about Project 1 after today, you have a one-week grace period if you need it. The very last moment when you can submit Project 1 is Monday, February 24 at 11:55 PM.
Write Your Reflection Memo
For this project, your reflection memo will give me the links to the document you are analyzing and to your rhetorical analysis. You will also tell me about what you have written. Follow these instructions to submit your work:
- Go to the Assignments tab on the left menu in Scholar.
- Choose “P1: Technical and Professional Rhetorical Analysis.”
- Scroll down to the text box below the headings Submission and Assignment Text. You will write your memo in this box.
- Add your memo headers (To, From, Subject, and Date).
- Insert a horizontal divider line using the button indicated with the red arrow in the image below:
- Add a sentence about the document you are analyzing, and add the Share link from Google Drive or the public URL to the site.
- Use the Insert Link button (shown with the red arrow in the image below) to make the URL a working weblink:
- Follow the instructions in Submitting Your Projects to make sure you have sharing set up properly and get the link to the final version of Project 1.
- Add a sentence that introduces Project 1, and add the Share line from your Google Drive.
- Use the Insert Link button (shown in step 7 above) to make the URL a working weblink.
- Write your reflection comments on the first project, following the explanation in the Project 1 Assignment page. Use what you know about effective memos to organize your reflection. For instance, use headings to arrange the information in your memo.
- Agree to the Honor Code by clicking the checkbox at the bottom of the page in Scholar.
- Submit your Project, and save a copy of the confirmation and submission ID.
- Celebrate! You’ve finished the first project!
We will begin Project 2 during the next class session. This assignment will rely heavily on Markel, Chapter 14, “Writing Definitions, Descriptions, and Instructions.” Go ahead and begin reading the chapter to familiarize yourself with these kinds of technical writing.
