For this project, you will select a purpose and audience that addresses the class theme (or responds to one of the class texts). You will then select an appropriate genre for this project, and demonstrate your rhetorical know-how by making appropriate rhetorical choices for this situation. Building on these, you’ll create your own text that fulfills this purpose and message.
RIP projects should be a text-based genre, but can be creative, hybrid genres. Practice possibilities in your RIP exercises and take risks to find out what might be the best way to express your message. Your instructor may suggest specific directions that relate to your class readings; please ask your instructor for more details.
You will then write a companion essay that describes your creative and revision process, analyzes the rhetorical choices you made and assesses your success at meeting your goals in this project.
