CCT 110: Rhetoric and Media Winter 2017 Prof. Rhonda McEwen Op-Ed Assignment Value: 15% Due: April 6, 11:59 p.m., uploaded to Late assignments will not be accepted. Submission instructions: Upload to your tutorial section’s account. No hard copy necessary. The login and password for your tutorial section’s account will be posted on Blackboard. Assignment details: Following our lecture and discussion in class, write an op-ed on any issue that you care about, aimed at being published in a newspaper (or on a newspaper’s website). The op-ed should follow the format and rhetorical approach we discussed in class. The aim of this assignment is to develop skills in writing for the public, and to hone your ability to develop a clear argument and convey that argument effectively. The topic is open. You are encouraged to write about an issue you care about, or something you have expertise in (for example: issues related to being a student, or being a student at UTM; issues related to your work or job; issues related to the media/communication information/technology industries; issues related to your community, your neighbourhood, your city, etc.). You can also read the news for inspiration and write about something currently being discussed in the media. Sample op-eds will be discussed in class. Requirements: • Between 400 and 500 words max • Double-spaced, 12-point font • Include a headline (newspaper terminology for a title) • Must be written in the tone and style of an op-ed • Must make a clear and concise argument • Must make a recommendation or suggestion of how to address the issue you’re writing about • Must be on a topic you are interested in that the public will care about and therefore would be likely to be published in a newspaper (can be anything you are interested in/care about/have expertise in/want to learn more about, related to topics in ICCIT or beyond) • CITATIONS: Following the style of an op-ed, you are not required to cite research within the text of your op-ed. This means, however, that you must write the op-ed entirely in your own words, with no quotations or citations. If you are drawing on research, reports, events, etc., you must explain that research, report, event, etc. in your own words and write the reference into the main text (rather than citing it in brackets in typical APA style). Please, however, include a list of any and all works consulted in your research and writing process. You can call this list Works Consulted. All assignments will be checked by for plagiarism, so please approach this very carefully. • Even when not writing in the academic form, we must respect academic integrity. Writing things in your own words will no doubt involve effective summarizing and paraphrasing – simply changing a couple of words from material that would otherwise be quoted is unacceptable. Remember that, even when summarizing or paraphrasing material, attribution must still be provided in the form described above (i.e. in the main text and not in parentheses). Ensure you review the relevant academic integrity materials and policies and ask the teaching team for help if you don’t understand how to appropriately quote, paraphrase, summarize, or cite your sources. Must contain a brief “Works Consulted” list of sources consulted for the piece (at least two sources must be consulted) in APA style. These can be academic or non-academic texts, such as media articles or reports, but all sources must be both verifiable and reliable. Again, consult us for help if any of this remains unclear. Grading criteria: - A clear argument - Deep understanding of the issue - Acknowledgement of other perspectives in the debate - Evidence that the topic is well researched - Presents and advocates for a clear solution to the issue - All writing is in students’ own words and attribution is provided in an appropriate form - All material consulted listed in a Works Consulted list in APA style - Is 400-500 words max - Is well-written, free from errors, spell-checked and proofread ...

Social Media and Fake News
At the beginning of this year, with the formal takeover of The United States’ Presidency by
Donald J. Trump, the idea of “fake news” became global headlines. Though it appeared as if the
use of misleading information might have just appeared into the political landscape, the use of
distorted information in favor of an agenda has been a common and constant occurrence in the
field of politics. Since transitions of power became dependent on popular opinion, the need to
sway the majority’s ideas has been imperative. To achieve this goal, the spread of rumors,...
