Demonstrate competence in Standard Written English, including grammar, sentence and paragraph structure, coherence and document design (including the use of the visual) and use this knowledge to revise texts
Choose a magazine or newspaper for a general audience, NOT scientific experts, where you would like to publish your article. Find an article from the publication to use as an example. NOTE: News websites like CNN.com are NOT newspapers nor magazines and will not be appropriate.
Determine the audience for the publication – either through the publication website or media kit. Write a brief (3-4 sentence) analysis of your audience – what is their level of background knowledge on the topic? What is their level of education? Include the percentage of readers that have a B.S or higher. What are their values (why would they care about this topic, what is important about it to them)? You should be able to figure out what’s important to them by viewing the demographic information in the media kit- what are characteristics of the audience? Are they mostly, young, married, have children or are they over 50 or 60? What perspective or point of view might they have on this topic?
Choose one article from your search that you will report on. Use either an appeal to wonder or an appeal to application, and explain how you are using this appeal in your article. (Links to an external site.)
Write a 2 page (double spaced) article, with a title for your article. Remember from your reading, that a newspaper or magazine article starts with the “lead” – conclusion or findings of the study. It does not follow the format of an IMRAD journal article.
Use correct citation format for this genre, natural language – follow the example found in the article you have chosen as a sample from the newspaper or magazine. Make sure you have at least 1 graphic that is appropriate for your publication and audience that conveys an important concept.
