English 654: Literacy, Diversity, and Technology
Your final portfolio will showcase your work across this course. You may choose to revise and improve earlier pieces from your portfolio, compose new pieces, or a combination thereof. You can use audio projects, video projects, or blogging projects. Your portfolio should take one of two forms:
3-Piece Portfolio: The three pieces you have already composed this semester, 2 of which should be significantly revised.
4-Piece Portfolio: The three pieces you have already composed this semester, plus one more. You can choose from 1) a set of 5 new blog posts with a critical introduction; 2) an audio narrative collection; 3) a 60 second video.
Post your digital portfolio on your website in a way that is most suitable for your collection of materials.
The success of your Portfolio will be directly tied to how you think about, approach, and execute each of your projects. In addition to the three or four projects, you will describe, analyze, and assess the work in your Portfolio.
You should also consider the following:
Your projects can be about subjects of your choice as long as your treatment of that subject matter is rigorous, serious, critical, and reflective.
Your projects must exhibit your careful considerations of rhetorical choice surrounding the issues of audience, purpose, forum, and technological affordances. Also, your projects must exhibit your careful consideration of genre and its conventions. Finally, your projects must exhibit your careful consideration of design.
You should secure permission to use materials/assets, as needed.
Along side, digital portfolio, you need to submit/post your overall impressions of the project and reflect on learning challenges and successes.
