GENRE in the WILD: Understanding Genre Within Rhetorical (Eco)systems
For this blog posting, you will create your own genre piece that is based on one of the 17 SDGs. Your genre piece can be anything you want — a poem, an article, a podcast, a video, an Internet meme, a brochure, or a song lyric. The limit is your creativity! If you need to review examples of possible genres, check out
Chapter 14 Examples of Genres
1. Please post your Genre Piece at the top of your Blog Posting. If you use other tech tools, then simply provide a link to your Genre Piece. Or if you create an artistic piece, you can post a picture of your Genre Piece.
2. Underneath your Genre Piece, you will post your Composer’s Statement, which is basically a rhetorical analysis of the very Genre Piece that you created. In essence, you’ll be describing the rhetorical choices that you made as the composer of your piece.
· Labor Specifications: Postings should be developed responses (if you need a target, shoot for 500-800 words) and may contain text, video, images, links, etc. You are considered the composer of your blog, so there is no limit to the creativity you may use!
· Audience: You will be dealing with two separate audiences for this blog posting. First, the audience for your Genre Piece can be anyone you want to target. For example, perhaps you’ve created a Prezi Presentation about gender equality for a target audience of middle schoolers; your Prezi would need to contain content that would be understandable and appropriate for a younger target audience. Second, your Composer’s Statement will be written to an audience that understands rhetorical analysis, even though they were not your original audience. Think of this audience as your classmates who will be observing your Genre Piece and your analysis of it. Will they find your analysis thorough? Will they understand your rhetorical choices made as the composer of the piece?
· Process: The Genre Piece is totally up to you — choose an SDG to explore and then create your genre piece. The Composer’s Statement will be a bit more complex. Remember, you’re reflecting on your process–and persuading your readers that you made thoughtful choices. Maybe your choices weren’t all perfect, but that’s okay. This is your chance to explain your intentions. Try to explain the following:
1. The rhetorical choices you made as you composed your genre piece. Define your purpose, audience, and how you wished to affect your audience. Please also discuss your use of rhetorical appeals and the mode and medium you chose to work in.
2. How you worked within (or broke out of) genre conventions. Discuss the elements that define the genre most typically, and how you responded to those in your composition. Discuss your style (written or other), your use of design, and how you drew on sources.
3. In fact, you can organize your Composer’s Statement into 2 Major Sections that answer the following questions:
· What was your purpose? For example, did you set out to tell a story, report information, or present a persuasive argument? Or some combination? How well do you think you achieved your purpose? What, if anything, might you have done differently?
· Who was your intended primary audience? Secondary audience? Why? Characterize the people in each group. What are their assumptions and expectations about your topic? How did you speak to these audiences? What message did you want them to take away from your composition? For example, did you want them to take a specific action?
· Did you use one or more of the rhetorical appeals (ethos, logos, pathos, kairos), and how effective were you in reaching your audience through appeals?
· How and why did you choose the mode and medium that you decided on? What are the advantages of these choices?
· Why did you choose the genre that you did? What elements of the genre interested you the most? How did you use or subvert the conventions of the genre?
· What choices did you make in terms of style (including organization, language, voice, and tone)? What did you consider in making these choices?
· Evaluate your design. Why did you choose to work with text, images, video, and audio (and any other elements) as you did? How effective do you think you were? What might you have done differently if you had more time?
· Did you draw on any sources for this piece? How did you decide which sources were right for you? How did you integrate them into your composition? Did you cite them according to the conventions of your genre?
