PROJECT 4: WRITERS TEACHING WRITIN
G
the assignment
We have approached research-based writing as a vehicle for criticalthinking, a form of creativity, and a way of engaging with the wider world.This final assignment asks you to teach next year’s class some of what youhave learned. You will create TWO lessons through which to teach TWO ofthe major topics we have explored this term. These topics include:
 
How to invent an argument by analyzing an artifact.
 
How to present arguments creatively in visual, musical, or literary forms.
 
How to invent an argument by formulating and testing a hypothesis.
 
How to conduct effective ethnographies, case studies, interviews, librarydatabase research, or internet research.
 
How to use your rhetorical imagination to change a community throughwriting.
 
How to make truly significant, thoroughgoing, and effective revisions.(You may create a lesson on another writing-related topic from class, but youmust clear that topic with me first.)On the last day of class, we’ll post your lessons on The Rhetoric Rewritten(http://rerhet.blogspot.com/
 
), an online handbook for students learningabout rhetoric, writing, and research, and to the Writing Program Portfolio.
 what to include
Be as imaginative as you can when designing your lessons, but be sure thateach one includes the following:
 
A clear and complete definition of the relevant concept (or concepts).
 
Specific, step-by-step “how to” instructions.
 
A detailed illustration of how you used the concept in one of your ownprojects for class.
 
An original assignment for your students, so that they can learn by doing.Your lessons should aim to be self-contained. That is, you should feelconfident that someone who completes your lessons online (i.e., without youin the room to guide them) will have learned how to do what you set out toteach them.
due dates
A first draft of both lessons is due in class on Tuesday, May 25. We will uploadyour revised lessons to the blog and to Portfolio on Thursday, May 27. Youmay revise your lessons yet again for final submission to me on Friday, June 4,along with all of your other final drafts.
