Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to refine your understanding of justification, to practice the construction of an argument, and to evaluate arguments. You will gain a deeper understanding of how you choose criteria of justification, and you will gain experience in evaluating what you believe. You are doing this assignment to practice a deeper form of self-expression and self-reflection.
Instructions: Using the feedback you received from your reflection in Week 2, edit your work and reflection and create a selfie video speech/essay entitled “Here I Stand.” Your video essay should be between 5-10 minutes in length. You can use your webcam or your cell phone to shoot your video. The video should align with the following outline:
Introduction: Draw your audience into your presentation
Thesis: Make clear what your stance on the issue is
Evidence: Provide justification for your thesis
Objections: Anticipate how some might disagree
Conclusion: Bring your essay to a logical conclusion.
For this assignment, you will not be graded on the quality of your video or how well you deliver the speech. This week you are simply practicing recording a video so that you will be ready to record a screencast in week 6. You will be graded on the content of your speech. For detailed instructions on recording the selfie video see Here I Stand Selfie: Video Directions. If you do not upload a video this week you will not be penalized, but be sure you upload your script. If you do record a video be sure to upload your video and your script.
