ILP Assignment OverviewILPs are assignments designed to simultaneously teach research, writing, and rhetorical analysis skills. Each ILP will build on the last and, as a group, help build the basic foundation of the three major projects. Each ILP should run between two and three pages and is made up of two parts: a researchreflection section and an annotation section. Each ILP will keep this two-part form, and most of the sections will remain the same from assignment to assignment. The two exceptions are as follows: The kind of source that the student must find (news article, essay, academic journal article, scholarly book, et cetera) and the kind of analysis to be done, which will correspond to the rhetorical concept being taught that week.Research Reflection ~ 200 WordsThe research reflection asks students to reflect on the research process.Reflections to be done before searching for sources1) Reflect on what you know about the issue you are going to research. What are the problems, events, and people that might be significant?2) Plan a research strategy. Identify the search terms you will use and why you will use them.Reflections to be done after you’ve found a suitable source1) How did the research plan differ from what actually happened?2) How could you change your research strategy in the future? Why?Source Annotation The analysis section asks students to cite, summarize, and analyze the source.1) Write a correct citation for the source (MLA)2) Write a ~75 word summary of the text.3) Write an analysis of between 250 and 450 words, depending on the assignment Remember that the Research Reflection section and Analysis Section are an assumed partof every ILP. The example instructions below only relate to the kind of source and kindof analysis to be done. See the Appendix for an example of what an ILP assignment sheetand completed assignment could look like. Intro to Research ILP: 1) Find two texts on an issue in which you are interested (this may require some timesearching around topics, since you might not have an issue in mind right away)2) For each source, write a paragraph that notes its interesting features, and how those features differ from the other text. What’s interesting about the differences? Given the issue at hand, what is potentially useful about each text?Stasis ILP1) Find a feature story or essay, written for a general audience, on an issue in which you are interested. 2) Identify the major claim of the text and determine its status (Conjecture, Definition, Value, Policy). Show how at least two sub claims in the text support the main claim (how might a claim of definition or value support a claim of policy?)Timeliness ILP1) Find a magazine article on your issue, published in the past year.2) Analyze how the text makes a claim for its urgency or timeliness. What is at stake, who is it at stake for, and who can respond to the issue? Make sure to give support from the text.Value System ILP1) Using TCL resources, find a book length treatment of your issue area. 2) Identify the predominate values system or systems that drive the book’s claims. What commonplaces, and other evidence, suggests the value system(s) you identified, and why?Argument Analysis ILP1) Find a substantive source on your issue2) Give an overview as to how the evidence and support of the text is used. Be sure to identify the kinds of evidence used and show, via the Toulmin Model, how this evidence supports the claims of the text. Be sure to give at least one detailed example from the text.Ethos ILP1) Using the library databases, find a professional magazine article on your issue. 2) In one paragraph, summarize the text’s situated ethos (author and publication credentials and reputation). In a second paragraph, explain how the texts invents its ethos, i.e., how does the text demonstrate, or fail to demonstrate, intelligence, character or virtue, and good will? Be sure to give support from the text.Logos ILP1) Find a peer reviewed article on your issue2) Give an account of the logical appeals in the text.
