Written Communication Assessment Instructions: Select one of the writing prompts

Written Communication Assessment
Instructions:
Select one of the writing prompts on page 3 and write a letter as indicated. Be sure to address every part of the writing prompt in your letter. Your letter should be 400-800 words long and will be graded according to how well you:
Adhere to the context and purpose of your letter
Tailor your letter to its audience (the recipient/s)
Develop your ideas and convey meaning
Use the appropriate level of formality
Use letter-writing conventions
Organize the content of your letter
Use clear language that is free of errors (in grammar, usage, punctuation, and spelling)
Before you begin writing, take some time to organize your thoughts. Identify the main points you want to communicate, and make a plan for developing and connecting them. Be sure to stay within the given word count range for the task.
When you have completed this assessment, submit it as an assignment in your course space.
The writing assignment below:
Write a letter to a living public figure whom you admire. It should be someone you do not know personally, such as an athlete, artist, writer, musician, or politician. Tell them why you appreciate them and be specific about what they do that resonates with you. If they have inspired you to do something in particular in your life, tell them about it. Your letter should not resemble a fan letter written by a child or teenager, nor should it entail a list of the person’s accomplishments. Focus on your perspective as an adult, and write with depth and maturity.
Please tell me who you are going to write about first and I will tell you if I agree to it.

You will be required to create a single poster that chooses a specific invention

You will be required to create a single poster that chooses a specific invention or technological innovation and traces its development life cycle.
It is most likely that the innovation you choose will use the Winston template.
Your chosen innovation may be something local, such as the Australian pacemaker or the multi-channel Cochlear implant, or an international one like Netflix or Facebook. The ‘innovation model’ that you choose will necessarily depend on the innovation you want to trace.
For example, if the innovation met a pre-existing need in society then you might choose Brian Winston’s model (2002, pp. 3-15). If you chose a ‘disruptive’ type of innovation, then you might choose Clayton Christensen’s model (2016). Please watch the lecture from week 1 if you are unsure, and do the following readings:
Winston, Brian (1998). “Modelling Change” in Media, Technology, and Society: a History $CANVAS_COURSE_REFERENCE$/file_ref/g6e7d8a9397a5f0a17f97120e47739ccb?wrap=1 Download $CANVAS_COURSE_REFERENCE$/file_ref/g6e7d8a9397a5f0a17f97120e47739ccb?wrap=1
The Disruption Machine (on Disruptive Innovation) http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/06/23/the-disruption-machine (Links to an external site.)

Make sure you choose an innovation where you can clearly determine the different steps.

Once you have identified the different steps in the development of your innovation, you can create the flow chart in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint, or in any software program you have at hand. You will not be marked on your ‘design’ abilities – but the flow of the innovation should be clear. You can also use this template. Download this template.
You will be assessed on your ability to identify the correct steps in the innovation life cycle, your understanding of the history of your specific innovation, and the historical accuracy of those steps.

It is not necessary to include more detail than is contained within an annotated model, but if you find that you require more room to expand on the innovation you’ve chosen, you should limit yourself to no more than 200 words. Please include a bibliography on a second page to identify your sources.
Criteria:

A clear schematic representation of the innovation life cycle
Steps within the diagram are historically accurate
Evidence that you understand the ‘innovation life cycle’ you have chosen, the innovation’s social impact or the social necessity to which it responds, and that the model is appropriate to the innovation
Evidence of research to support your schematic representation and chosen model.

Attached Files:
Speech Outline Template.docx (20.577 KB)
Rubric Persuasive Ver2.pdf (112.603 KB)
Your fourth speaking assignment will be a persuasive speech using Monroe’s Motivated Sequence.
You will be persuading your audience to physically do something. It is recommended that you choose a specific behavior for this speech (because such topics will fit into the motivated sequence nicely). This speech must include the following:
Three (3) documented sources (books, magazines, newspaper articles, WWW pages, etc.) These sources cannot be all of the same kind, but rather a variety of sources. Only ONE may be a web site (though you are allowed to find your other sources electronically).
YOU are not a source for yourself.
This MUST be listed under the Supporting Materials section of your outline in MLA format.
Remember to verbally cite your source as you speak, too. (“According to Margaret Renkl’s New York Times editorial, ‘The Cicadas Are Coming, It’s Not an Invasion. It’s a Miracle.’ Periodic cicadas emerge in cycles — every 13 years or every 17 — and they are generally smaller than their annual cousins.”) Verbal citation and attributions can be found in Chapter 10 of your book.
One (1) presentation aid.
List this under the Supporting Materials section of your outline.
Attach and submit copies of any electronic presentation aids (including PowerPoints) used along with your outline for this assignment.
Introduction, Body, and Conclusion sections to structure your message
Monroe’s Motivated Sequence
The five parts MUST be indicated within your outline. They may be part of the outline or written in its margins.
The five parts are in addition to your outline, they do not replace already existing parts.
An Outlne that is fully developed and properly formatted
Please use the attached outline template as a guide for proper format. It is recommended that you save your own copy of the document and build your outline directly in that file.
Your outline should not be a script of your speech – but it should include all the content you plan to address and all the analysis and elaboration you wish to say about said content. Additionally, this outline must be a full-sentence outline. (There are example outlines available for you to look at in Outlining folder in the Week Two Assignments section here on Blackboard.)
Include all parts of the outline – including each section of the template and all of their listed components. Speech on why kids shouldnt text or drive with facts supporting your reasons will include a rogh draft outline must be included uded
Be sure to include language you intend to use in your speech as you present, not generalizations of ideas

How many enforcement actions does the SEC take each year against securities law violators? What are the typical infractions?
After the Great Depression, Congress passed the Securities Acts of 1933 and 1934 to improve investor confidence in the markets. What two “common sense” notions are these laws based on?
Who was the President of the United States at the time of the creation of the SEC? Who was the first SEC chairperson? Who is the current SEC chairperson?
