This final paper is the culmination of your work in this course. In this final paper, you practice analysis by selecting an artifact to examine and by making strong arguments using sound reasoning and strong evidence about your analysis of that artifact. The analysis should contribute a unique finding or observation about communication or the human condition. Length: The final paper should be no longer than 18 pages (excluding Works Cited page and any Appendix or Exhibits.) Ideally, your paper will be between 14 to 16 pages. SUBMIT: Final paper (including Works Cited page and any Appendix or Exhibit), and revised annotated bibliography PRESENT: Your findings in whatever form you wish (panel presentation, video, art project, etc.) Total points: The paper & its various elements are worth a total of 450 points Conference with instructor reviewing paper artifact: 20 points Draft Extensive description of topic/artifact: 20 points Draft annotated bibliography: 40 points Draft deep analysis/argument: 20 points Final paper + final annotated bibliography (300 points) The presentation of the paper is worth 50 points: due online Further explanation about the assignment This final paper has three components which are: (1) the description of your selected artifact and justification for studying this artifact, (2) a review of relevant scholarship about the artifact itself or your related concepts, and (3) your analysis of the artifact which helps you prove your conclusion. During the next weeks, you will submit drafts of these sections, which will help you timely complete the paper. Extensive description of artifact: Describe every aspect of your artifact in excruciating detail, including its prominence in society (about 3-4 pages, double-spaced). In addition to helping you better understand your artifact, this section will help you justify why this is an object worthy of study. Annotated bibliography: This document (about 3 to 4 pages, double spaced) should provide you with resources for your research, organize that research, and help you structure your paper. You should have at least five scholarly sources. You will likely have about ten total sources (scholarly and trade). The annotated bibliography serves as the basis for your mini-literature review or discussion of relevant theories or concepts. Some guidelines to help you with the annotations: Annotations should relate to the concepts or theories in your paper. Each annotation should summarize the contents of the article, book, or source in a long paragraph or one to two paragraphs. Each annotation should end with one or two sentences discussing the relevance of this source for your paper. Make sure you use MLA style properly. If you quote from the source, include the page number in the annotation. (This makes your work on the paper so much easier.) Deep analysis of artifact: Again, you want to analyze the artifact in detail and with great insight. This is the section of the paper where you show your creativity and unique perspective. Because you have examined the artifact in excruciating detail, you know the artifact incredibly well. Thus, you can explain both the overt and covert messages about society, power, relationships, gender, knowledge, etc. that the artifact communicates to us. (This section should be about 5 to 6 pages, double-spaced.) Presentation: You present your findings in whatever form you wish. Typically, students present their paper as if their were part of a panel (in the format used at academic conferences) via a recording. These presentations are about 5-7 minutes, delivered extemporaneously. However, you can create a performance to present your findings or a video of images that explain the work. Purpose of this assignment: This assignment provides you the opportunity to practice rhetorical writing by developing a thesis, researching information relevant to that thesis (supporting and opposing your thesis), and presenting your thesis and supporting arguments in an organized, well-crafted document. The assignment addresses all of the PSLOs (4, 4.1-4.4) for this course.

Further explanation about the assignment An annotated bibliography identifies relevant scholarly research and helps you organize that research and structure your paper. The annotated bibliography serves as a mini-literature review in which you explain theories or concepts relevant to your artifact and arguments. A literature review of a scholarly paper tells the reader: What we know about the topic, what we don’t know, and, given what we don’t know, what is worth knowing. In other words, it reviews what others in the field say and provides for the basis for what you say and why what you say is different than what we already know and is worth studying. You integrate your research into your paper not in the format of this annotated bibliography, but as a separate section that explains to the reader why your scholarly research leads to your argument (which you present in the deep analysis section). What to cover in your extensive description of your artifact In this extensive description of your artifact, you are trying to download all the information you can find on your artifact. One reason for this part of your paper is to justify why you are studying this particular artifact. In other words, what makes this item worthy of study. What is so important or significant about this item that it is worthwhile to examine and to identify its messages. The following list areas that you could examine in the extensive description of your artifact or topic.
