“ open letter ” genre W r i t i n g
revised (Article Translation letter) and Reflective Analysis.
Hi there for the first part it is meant to be as a letter in a letter format this will help,
“Translate” (rewrite) the article into a new genre (an open letter) addressed to a specific public (non-academic) audience. (PART 1)
HOW TO APPROACH THIS ASSIGNMENT CHOOSE and READ YOUR ACADEMIC ARTICLE – Choose a peer-reviewed academic article from a scholarly journal on a topic of interest to you in your field. This article may be used to address the development of a research question as the course continues (more on that later). – Read the article carefully using the reading strategies and the specific rhetorical elements we will cover in the course. Make sure you understand what it conveys and have a sense of the exigence, object of study, purpose, methodology, relevance, main findings, and implications (don’t worry—you’ll find out what these things are!). ANALYZE THE EXPECTATIONS AND CONVENTIONS OF THE “OPEN LETTER” GENRE (See examples here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_letter and the examples on Blackboard) Closely examine several examples of the Open Letter genre so that you can identify and analyze the conventions and expectations of the genre and how to address your specific audience. Your project will be assessed according to its ability to reproduce those genre expectations, so you will need to know what they are in order to reproduce them. TIP: Keep track of your choices as you rewrite/translate (see below: Write the Reflective Analysis). CHOOSE YOUR AUDIENCE, CHOOSE THE AUTHOR The objective is to shift the audience from an academic audience to a targeted public audience. For your open letter to be effective, you will need to choose a specific audience so that you can address your points effectively and understand the relationship between the writer and the readers. You may choose to write the letter as yourself, as the author of the original article, or as a fictitious/made up person from a real or fictitious company. In any of these cases, you need to identify who you are so that the authorship is clear to the letter’s audience. CONSTRUCT THE GENRE (i.e., WRITE THE LETTER) (1.5-2 pages double-spaced) **the page count does NOT include your/the class identifying information or the reference at the end. At this point, you’re ready to begin constructing or translating the article into the new genre of the letter. The form, structure, and development of your ideas are dependent on the genre AND the audience. What you produce should look like a letter. In other words, make it look real!
What we had was just a summary you must just tailor it to a form of a letter with and audience my prof said and and be epecific to who and what we are adressing in a motivational way
*Make sure you have added your blurb/paragraph about the peer response experience from the Zoom group conference.
The biggest issue is that Part 1 is not a letter; it has no specified audience, author, or purpose. Neither is it in the format of a letter. It’s really just a summary of the article. You can use much of the information you already have, but please choose a targeted audience, author, and purpose, and put it into the appropriate letter format to address the assignment.
The reflective analysis is good, and you explain how you went through the original article choosing elements to include and exclude, addressing the tone, etc. All of this will be more effectively conveyed once your letter is revised. You’ll also need to revise the reflective analysis to clarify those choices.
I have made it more into a letter format and all with audience but needs a better revision and audience theres examples above and full description
