Should not be part of this assignment

This assignment will ask you to take part in a public event of some form. This could include a sports game, festival, fair, concert, convention, or any other such event that is otherwise open to members of the general public (even if they charge an admission).
The event I wanted to write about was a Fall Harvest Festival at a local cider mill. (http://www.weberscidermillfarm.com/index.php).
Unlike journalism, you will not be documenting the event itself. Instead, you will document your experience of the event and use that experience to demonstrate a specific form of thematic engagement.
This should NOT be an incomplete draft. It should have a clear and decisive beginning, middle, and end.
A successful Narrative Non-Fiction essay should accomplish the following:
• Define the public event
• Define the author’s engagement with the event
• Use the relationship between the author’s engagement and the event itself to explore a
point of thematic intent that develops a universal truth
• Make specific and formalized compositional choices to further the readers engagement
with the text
• Achieve a length of 1000-1500 words
Restrictions –
• Be Safe. The author should not take part in any event that puts their safety, mental, or
physical well-being in any form of danger
• You’re not Hunter S. Thompson this means that the consumption of drugs and alcohol
should not be part of this assignment
• Do not prove yourself right you are attempting to explore an event, not write a
propaganda piece that justifies some preexisting opinion about the event, its participants,
or some other factor

Describe the rhetorical situation (purpose and original target audience) surrounding the text under analysis and accurately summarize the argument presented in the text.

Choose an article we have read from Media Studies (articles listed below). Choose the one that has sparked the most interest—not just your interest in the topic but also how the article is written. Write a 4-5 page Rhetorical Analysis that SUMMARIZES a main argument from your chosen article and ANALYZES how this argument is constructed.
Based on what you have read in the textbook and what we have discussed in class about rhetoric and the rhetorical appeals or artistic proofs (ethos, pathos, logos), this assignment asks you to think about how and why a written text works (or doesn’t work) rhetorically.
In addition to being well written and organized, the most successful responses to this assignment will do the following (these are not listed in order):
Describe the rhetorical situation (purpose and original target audience) surrounding the text under analysis and accurately summarize the argument presented in the text.
Include a clear and precise thesis statement (an analytical claim with reasons about how the text works)
Explain and analyze how the author builds and presents his/her argument.
Explain and analyze how the author connects with (or fails to connect with) the audience.
Demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of how the artistic proofs are working in the text.
Keep in mind that your focus is not on your own opinion about the topic being discussed in the article, but on explaining how the author of the article has put together her argument and how she appeals to the audience. In other words, if you were writing about an essay discussing the war in Iraq, what you think about the war would not be the focus; rather, you would need to show how the author argues their point and how their strategy is working.

Word count: 1500 minimum (works cited page not included in word count)

Essay 2: Multi-Modal | The Great Literacy Shift
Word count: 1500 minimum (works cited page not included in word count)
MLA style: 12 pt. font, Times New Roman, 1-inch margins, etc.
Goal:
The year is 2132, and you are an anthropologist looking at an event that took place more than one hundred years ago called “The Great Literacy Shift”: when over a mere two decades, the vast bulk of media and information exchange migrated from paper to screens. This migration manifested new technologies and other means of social communication, entertainment consumption, and consumerism. Your investigation addresses this question:
Based on two artifacts [texts/sources] you have discovered/uncovered from the early 1990s to 2022, what changes have occurred to society and culture as they progressed from the paper age into the digital age?
For this project, you will need to analyze various articles to determine what changes took place during the period between the late 20th century and the early 21st century. You will need to read articles representative of each era. You will use evidence gathered from those artifacts to address what changes in technologies led to changes in either social interactions, entertainment, consumerism, or other aspects of culture and society.

How did they support or build their argument?

Directions:
When analyzing a work you break it down into its parts to see how they work together. Ask what the author’s theme or main point is. How did they support or build their argument? What are the elements of his or her position?
Do not merely retell the essay in your own words. Assume your reader has read the essay but didn’t understand it. If you were explaining it to them, you would focus on the keys parts and how they’re connected. Yes, there is an element of retelling involved, but your focus should be on the elements of the author’s theme.
Use the text below, must Include two direct quotes from the essay.
