English 112 Multi-Genre Project

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?

To explore and learn about various topics and genres, and to deepen our understanding of what we have read…in addition to producing a variety of polished pieces of work.

WHAT IS A GENRE?

It is a type of writing or representing, like a poem, a play, a grocery list, a diary entry, a sketch, a photograph, or a set of directions…or a million other things (see the links below). 

WHAT IS A MULTI-GENRE PROJECT?


It's a collection of pieces written/created in a variety of genres, informed by your research on a particular subject, that presents one or (more likely) more perspectives on a question or topic. A multi-genre project is personal, creative, and can’t be copied from some other source. It involves you, as a writer/creator/artist, making conscious decisions about what information is important and how it should be presented to the reader in order to be most effective.

 

WHAT ARE SOME GENRES I MIGHT USE?

 

Follow these links for some ideas . 

http://www.mshogue.com/ce9/multi_genre/multigenre.htm#Types of Genres:  OR

http://aboutmultigenreprojects.blogspot.com/2011/05/list-of-multi-genre-...

 

Please be aware that the genres you choose must somehow be connected, not just a choice of the easiest types.  You will very likely have to do a little research about them.  Also, they should revolve around whatever you develop as the CENTRAL THEME of your paper.

 

WHAT IS A “CENTRAL THEME”?

 

Well, this is the overall connecting thread with all of your pieces.  The genres you select are completely up to you, but they must somehow tie in to your overall idea. 

 

 

 

HOW WILL I BE SCORED?

 

Here’s how it breaks down:

Title Page (2 points):

 It should match the tone of your central theme, and must include:

Your title (central theme), your first name, the due date, and the teacher & course name

 

Table of Contents (3 points):

This should include the title of each piece, and the genre it falls under

 

Opening/Introduction/Prologue…or whatever you’d like to call it (5 points):

Greet your readers, and provide some background to your project.  Provide any background information you think they may need in order to fully enjoy it, and offer any personal comments on the pieces, if you like.

 

Body (120 points): 4 PROJECTS IN TOTAL 30 POINTS EACH

This is the real meat of your assignment.  Be sure that each piece is clearly identified with a suitable title, and the page layout is as effective as possible.  You’ll need four different pieces, all from different genres.

 

Each piece will be scored according to the following rubric:

Relation to central theme – 10

Mastery of genre – 5

Creativity – 5

Conventions - 5

Presentation - 5

 

 

Epilogue (5 points):

This will provide your conclusion, with any closing notes you’d like your reader to consider.  Any parting words?  Any call for reflection?

 

 

I can’t wait to see what you create!  Good luck!
