The “Grammar + Editing Handbook for New EWM Majors” is a project designed for Josh Mehler’s Advanced Writing and Editing class, an elective course in the Editing, Writing, and Media major. The purpose of this assignment is to help familiarize students with elements of grammar and punctuation while simultaneously giving them experience researching, writing, and editing a large, class-wide collaborative writing project. Further, this project is specifically targeted to an audience of new EWM majors and ultimately aims to support incoming students as they begin their studies in EWM.

Remix Project

Composed in Rory Lee’s WEPO (Writing and Editing in Print and Online), Heather’s expository piece was developed this piece using movie clips, an Edmund Burke Quote, and a handful of researched information about the genocide in Darfur.  Heather’s composition communicates a powerful message about the enduring scars of genocide, scars that persist long after the next news cycle.

“Florida State Create” was created as a part of Rory Lee’s WEPO course — Writing and Editing in Print and Online. This particular project was part of a viral marketing campaign project. To complete the viral marketing project, students create a constellation of texts that address one subject. What is interesting about Florida State Create is that it includes a diverse range of creative projects: art, photography, writing, and music. Florida State Create is currently taking submissions for student works.

The projects in this collection were developed in Rory Lee’s Rhetoric course (ENC 3021). Rory asks his students to develop a digital work that communicates the key terms and ideas developed by the sophists, Aristotle, and Plato. As is the case in his epistemology projects, Rory does not ask his students to use a particular medium or composing platform.  The projects included here were composed with Wix (a web-building platform), Tumblr (a social media platform), and InDesign (a desktop publisher).

The projects in this collection were developed in Rory Lee’s Rhetoric course (ENC 3021). Rory asks his students to develop a digital work that explores the epistemology — way of knowing —  of a specific author included in Rhetoric’s canon. The projects included here explore the epistemologies of Kenneth Burke’s, Francis Bacon’s, and Gloria Anzaldua’s theories of language, knowledge-making, and motive.
