Science and Technology: Composing A Technology Review Website for Ole Miss Students
"After all, when you come right down to it, how many people speak the same language even when they speak the
same language?” ~ Russell HobanIn your last paper, you reviewed a mobile technology product in a very traditional, academic form, the
argumentative essay, using a moderate, academic voice for a general, academic audience over the age of 30. For this assignment, you will change the form, the voice, and the audience of that paper. Your assignment is to rework your mobile technology review into a webpage for a technology review website that you will create by yourself or with one other classmate. Yo
ur website may contain any of the information you used for your argumentative paper, but it may also include personal anecdotes, funny graphics, and pictures. It should also address student issues like
whether this product is too expensive for the average student, whether it is too heavy or fragile to carry around in a backpack, how likely it is that this product will be stolen from your library cubby while you are grabbing a cup of coffee, how much the product increases your personal attractiveness, or any other issue that would interest an OleMiss student. The purpose of the website you design is to provide student-to-student reviews of mobile technology products. The website design should appeal to Ole Miss students.
To develop skills in composing electronic text for a specific audience and to develop skills inworking collaboratively.
