Magazine Assignment Evaluation

These are the questions that I will ask myself as I look to give your articles advisory grades next week. These are the only elements on which I will base your grades:

Self-Reflexive Essay

For Friday, in addition to your revised draft, I want you to bring in a 250–500 word essay explaining the rhetorical choices that you made while writing your article, including a brief description of the strategy behind them. The audience that you are addressing in this essay is me. You can use the above outline as a guide for what to look at in this essay, but this is not about jockeying for a grade. Rather, I need you to explain your decisions in order that I can determine how and why they meet the criteria of “appropriateness” that I’ve outlined above. In addition, please mark the changes that you have made on your revised article draft with a highlighter.
