Your main webpage on your collaborative website is going to highlight your digital justice focus, the assignment that was introduced to you at the beginning of the semester. Some of you may have already even presented your topic. Now you are going to write about that issue via a series of digital essays that will go on your website.
You must introduce this topic on your website in a way that will make people want to care about it. You must establish your own ethos as a rhetor; in other words, you need to show that you can and should be taken seriously and trusted.
You must also offer serious rhetorical analyses of your digital artifacts (imagine and TRUST that the creators will visit your site!) You do not need to explicitly use the terminology of rhetorical theory, but you need to dig deeper into EXACTLY how these activists and inventors establish an audience and who that audience is. It is NOT acceptable to argue that ANY address is universal and appeals to everyone. That’s just not ever true. Think on it and figure out the unique context.
You can template your main webpage any way that you like. Your "About Me" page was designed for you in order for you to get comfortable with the weebly platform. Now you are on your own so take these wings and flyyyyy!
You are creating three webpages related to
your digital justice topic:
This main page introduces your digital justice issue with your prezi, slideshare, or google presentation embedded (you might revise log #1 for this). This page should be at least 600 words long and exploit as much of the multimedia possibilities that weebly has to offer. This page is worth 10 points.
Your Research Subpage
Your research subpage presents--- in digital, multimedia format--- pertinent research (statistics, history, etc) about your justice issue. You are not writing an essay here. You are presenting an infographic in the way that you think your audiences might best understand the secondary research. For great examples of weebly webpages packed with information, click here to see Justine's page OR click here to see Sadia's page.
|Your Justice Subpage|
Your justice subpage chronicles the person/organization you have followed (you might revise log #2 and #3 for this). It must be at least 600 words long and exploit as much of the multimedia possibilities that weebly has to offer. This page is worth 8 points. This is the most original aspect of your work. Represent it well!
