My topic chosen is … “Should Couples Live Together Before Marriage”

Purpose: Explore a career-related or public interest topic through both an infographic and an editorial essay.  Your subject should be a topic you can take a stand on: an issue within your current or future profession or an issue in the public sphere you feel strongly about.  In your infographic you will present research to inform your audience about the issue.  Your editorial essay will be your chance to express your opinion about the topic and to urge an action for your audience.  It will also include research to back up your argument.  

For your research you should strive to find two to four reputable sources of information about your source.  The minimum requirement is two sources, and you must have the sources approved in DB 11.  I highly recommend you use at least one academic source, if not more.  Try search for survey data on your topic at Pew Research.  Although you will be allowed to document your infographic and editorial with hyperlinks, I do want you to turn in a complete Works Cited list of all of your sources for MWA 2 and 3 for DB 11.

Audience: Your classmates and instructor.  A secondary audience would be peers in your career or future career (or the public at large if you choose an issue in the public sphere).

For MWA 2, you will create an infographic on your topic.  You can organize your infographic any way that makes sense and will help your readers understand the information/research.  

  • Make sure to include an introduction to your issue (title and possibly a brief statement or paragraph)
  • You will need to document the research you use with hyperlinks (live). 

With the infographic you have the ability to use color, images, photos, and the layout to structure your explanation for your reader.  I have loaded links to two free infographic applications in our D2L content (Easel.ly and Piktochart).  Other free infographic applications include Infogr.am, Venngage, and many more.  (These applications all have more advanced options for pay, but the free version is all you need.)  You can even construct an infographic in Powerpoint.  I recommend exploring the Powerpoint option, because it is easy to hyperlink in Powperpoint.  Select a program to construct your infographic.  Save your infographic and upload it into both the MWA 2 dropbox and discussion board.  I will give you a brief review on how to use Easel.ly and Piktochart in the D2L virtual class.  I will also include some Youtube links for infographic tutorials.  

For MWA 3, you will revise your infographic into a short editorial/opinion essay.   An editorial essay may be less formal than an academic essay.  You should express your opinion (feel free to use “I”) and may include personal examples.  Strive for a catchy introduction and memorable conclusion.  Keep in mind that while your MWA 2 and 3 are on the same topic and research, your focus and purpose will change from MWA 2 to 3.  When you shift from the infographic to the editorial, you are turning from an informative, visual document to an argumentative, text-based document.  For example, if I were to research about the benefits of coffee and coffee shops, my infographic might simple be about the benefits of drinking coffee (caffeine).  My focus for the editorial might change to argue why MTC needs a coffee shop on campus (using some of the research about the benefits of coffee in my argument as well as other arguments).

Format: MWA 2 will be presented in electronic form in the MWA 2 discussion board.  You will probably have PNG or JPEG file options for loading (or a Powerpoint slide).  Your MWA 3 essay should fall into the 2-page range (typed) or about 450-500 words.  

You will need to use research in both the infographic and essay, but as these are both public/work genres, formal MLA documentation is not needed.  Instead, you may add hyperlinks to your infographic and essay for your documentation.  I am going to require that you create a formal MLA Works Cited page of your sources for DB 11, but you do not have to include it as part of MWA 2 or 3.

A note on hyperlinks.  Rather than typing in a full URL (which can be clumsy and take up too much space in a document), right click and highlight the key word or phrase you need to document.  You’ll see a drop down menu with hyperlink as an option.  Click on add hyperlink and type or past in the URL.  For example, a study found that knitters were 40% less likelyto suffer from chronic anxiety.  This is a clean and easy way to document for online modes that are not academic genres requiring MLA or APA documentation.
