19 Sept. Visual Rendering W/S.
Part I: W/S Prewrite
Working on your own take five minutes and write down your response to the following:
- 1.What is the overall goal or idea you are trying to convey to your audience?
- 2.What is the most successful illustration in your graphic and why?
- 3.How do you plan to develop the draft further?
Part II: Peer Feedback Session
Please organize yourselves into the following groups and then complete the activity below:
|One||Liya, Shruthi, Kendall||Michael, Branden, PJ
||Quentin, Gabriella, Davis|
|Two||Kusona, Jacob, Benjamin
Noah, Malek, Giba
Patrick, Nicole, Alex, Benjamin
Megan, Yotam, Morgan, Samantha
Gabriella, Miguel, Lewey
Nishant, Chaudhary, Ashley
Bianca, Felipe, David
Prashikh, Peter, Kaitlyn
Ryan, Emma, David
Briana, Joshua, Bruce
Ian, Saige, Shiva

Once you are settled into your groups, introduce yourselves, “exchange drafts,” and respond to the following questions, in writing, for each draft you read.
Once completed, email or hand your responses to your peer members:
- 1. Describe the main purpose or claim that author makes. How does the purpose/argument fulfill the assignment goals? If purpose/argument is unclear, suggest ways author can strengthen it.
- 2. Describe the key feature or image around which the author organizes her/his Visual Rendering? If the key feature or image is missing or unclear, suggest ways author could incorporate one.
- 3. Describe how the author has organized his/her rendering. Why do you think the “blocks” (i.e. slides) progress as they do? If organizational strategy is unclear, suggest ways the author could strengthen his/her claim support or transitions.
- 4. Describe the ratio of text to image. How do the images reinforce the author’s goal? If the graphic is too text heavy or the images do not work to support the overall claim, suggest ways the author can better communicate his/her claim to the audience.
Part III: Group Discussion
In the time remaining, be prepared to discuss the following with the whole class:
Will a few of you be willing to share your Rendering drafts? May I put them on the overhead and discuss the strengths?
