SGarza: PartIVWritingProcessKnowledge

As we continue to look at what writing is all about in your discipline area, we want to continue to look more closely at actual documents that are produced, and the kinds of moves writer make when creating those documents. This assignment will be similar to the Part III assignment in that we will be looking at the same kinds of things.

This time you will present the information as a screencast. There are several screencast programs available. Here's a link talking about screencasts And here's an example of a screencast I created for a class using Camtasia You can talk about the document you are analyzing the way I did in my video. You can get a free trial for the Camtasia program. Your computer may have a screen capture feature so you can look for that. Movie Maker might be an option but I have never used it for this. Here are links for tutorials that might help with Movie Maker.

For the interview part, you can record a video or audio of the student as you interview. Then you can use that to introduce your discussion of the document analysis. But keep the interview short; I'd say under 2 minutes. Audiences get bored easily. This will mean you will probably need to edit the audio/video, so if you don't know how to do that, you can just provide a summary of the info you gathered from the student interview.

Remember to cite all of your sources (even images). And you will need to cite the interview as well. Check the APA info on the Purdue OWL to find the format for that.
