     Colaborative Repurposing Project (see rubric)

     Overview

This will be your final project of the semester. It involves repurposing research you have conducted and written about in previous classes or research experiences, revising that research for a different audience, producing a brief research report, and a final repurposed product. The repurposed project may take the form of a website, a brochure, a flyer, a tutorial designed to teach a specific audience about your topic, a process guide for implementing your research, a public service announcement or other video, or various other formats.

     This Repurposing Project involves composing and delivering the following products:

1) the Pitch Proposal ( individual: worth 15% of entire grade)
2) a Progress Memo (individual; worth 7% of entire grade)
3) a Completion Memo (individual; worth 8% of entire grade)

4) a Repurposed Product (worth 30% of repurposing project grade)
5) a Repurposed Report (worth 30% of repurposing grade)
6) a formal Oral Presentation (worth 25% of repurposing project grade)

6) colleague evaluations (worth 15% of repurposing project grade)

The Pitch Proposal, the progress memo, and the completion memo are individual. The rest of the project will be completed by a team of two or three people. You will collaborate on all aspects of the "team" portion of the project. Please note that I will assess your professional participation and communication during the preparation of this project and calculate this assessment into your team grade.  Teams should be composed of people with differing strengths and interests so that all aspects of the project are supported.
