PROJECT 4: ELECTRONIC PORTFOLIO Assignment
An electronic writing portfolio, or e-Portfolio, is typically a collection of writing samples that showcases your best work. A writing portfolio is created by collecting, selecting, and reflecting on writing that is completed at the end of a given period of time—a unit, a course, a program, even a career. In this class, you will create an e-Portfolio that includes a globally revised version of one of the major writing projects, supporting documents reflecting your particular composing practices and writing skills, and a reflective statement that articulates what you have learned about writing by completing the major projects in the course.
It is important to note that “global revision” of a composition entails the “review of the entire composition, adding, deleting, and moving text as necessary” (AWR p. 65). In contrast, “local revision” refers to minor editing changes, usually at the level of the sentence.
The following items need to be included in your portfolio:
● A revised, edited, and polished version of either Project 1 or Project 2; (My project to help you will be linked below)
● At least 2 artifacts of your own design (in-class activity, homework assignment, or even notes explaining a concept) that reflect your composing practices or the development of a particular writing or communicative skill that was focused on in this class; (I selected: Ethos, Pathos, Logos, AND rhetorical strategies)
First Draft includes Set up Wix account, create a Homepage and About Me page. The following items need to be included in your portfolio:
• Welcome page with photo of your choice (all provided in links below, the picture of football team)
• About Me photo and page (photo of me will be provided)
• Tabs of A revised, edited, and polished version of either Project 1 or Project 2;
• At least 2 artifacts of your own design (in-class activity, homework assignment, or even notes explaining a concept) that reflect your composing practices or the development of a particular writing or communicative skill that was focused on in this class; (already provided up there)
• A reflective statement (min. 500 words) of what was learned about genres (persuasive article, meme, etc…) composing, and rhetorical strategies in the process of completing the course’s three major projects.

Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all pe

Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.
Unfortunately, the environment has been harmed by people who have acted thoughtlessly and without due consideration to all the relevant stakeholders. Identify one prominent example of environmental injustice in your home or regional area. Analyze the scope of the issue, the individuals or groups most impacted, and what if anything they have in common.
In your initial post, consider the following questions.
What groups are most negatively impacted by environmental injustice?
What is the role of social power, prestige, or political influence in these injustices?
Who should be held liable for environmental injustices?

Writing Assignment #4 Report to Your Supervisor Summary of the Assignment: • Ta

Writing Assignment #4
Report to Your Supervisor
Summary of the Assignment:
• Task: In this assignment, you will write a short report to the owner of a company to which you
have just been hired.
• Length: 1200-1500 words, single-spaced
• Graphics: You must integrate at least one graphic
• Sources: You will integrate at least three sources into the report.
The Situation and Your Role In It
You have been hired for the position of Manager for Customer Service at Lawn and Order Services, a
landscaping company.
Lawn and Order maintains a robust business in landscaping both residential and business properties. The
company has many clients in the local DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) area.
The landscaping staff that services residential and business properties comprises 75 individuals. In
addition, the company has several staff working in its office in Landover, Maryland. Included among
these office staff members is the IT Department, which consists of 10 employees.
The growth of the company has led to some problems that concern you as a new employee.
The History of Lawn and Order Services
Some history on the company will help to explain the problems Lawn and Order has now.
Lawn and Order started off in 2010 as a small outfit, owned and operated by Chris Taylor. Chris grew up
in Prince George’s County, Maryland. He graduated from high school and took a few courses at a local
community college. He never graduated from the community college but instead, after completing 18
credits, decided to leave school to start a landscaping business.
Chris started off the business with one truck, three lawn mowers, and a few helpers. He operated the
business out of his house. Eventually, as the number of clients grew, so did the number of trucks, lawn
mowers, and pieces of equipment. He added new employees to assist with the landscaping.
Chris eventually leased office space in Landover in order to have a more professional and scalable base
from which to operate the company. In addition, as the company grew and its office staff grew, so did the
technology and IT needs.For the IT needs of the company, Chris took several steps. He hired a web developer, Sandra Davidson,
to develop a website for Lawn and Order. Sandra used WordPress as the platform. Chris later hired Jack
Johnson to develop and maintain a database of customers, past and present. The database includes
personal information on the customers, such as physical addresses, email addresses, and, for some, credit
card information.
Eventually, Chris hired a few more IT employees, all of whom persuaded Chris to put the company’s
database on the cloud instead of purchasing an expensive server to maintain in the office. Chris agreed.
The company then contracted with CloudSecure, a local cloud company.
The IT Department grew as the company grew. Marsha Nolton was later hired. She maintains the
company blog, also on WordPress, but with a different account from that of the website. The blog is an
effective marketing tool. It provides weekly updates on services, deals, and other information on the
company. In addition, other functions began to involve IT. Jared Stone was hired to run payroll for Lawn
and Order. With Jared’s input, the payroll information was put on the cloud. CloudSecure maintains all
payroll information on its servers.
Problems That Have Developed
Chris, in hiring the IT staff and organizing the department, was not privy to best practices in security in
the area of IT. As a result, some problems have developed.
For example, only Jack has access to the database of past and present clients. Jack logs into the system
with an ID and password that CloudSecure has provided him. This is not an ideal situation. If Jack were
to experience a medical emergency and become unavailable for a period of time, no one else at Lawn and
Order Services would have access to the database. If Jack were to leave the company, no one else at
Lawn and Order Services would be able to peform his duties. In addition, CloudSecure has a company
policy that forbids it to provide login or password information to anyone other than approved individuals.
The only approved individual now is Jack.
Morever, Sandra maintains the website through WordPress. She uses her personal email and password to
log into the system. But she is the only individual in the office who has access to or is able to update
anything on the website. Again, if anything were to happen to Sandra, Lawn and Order would be stuck.
No one else in the company can update its website.
Marsha manages the company’s blog, also on WordPress. The blog is an excellent marketing tool, with
weekly updates on services, deals, and other information on the company posted weekly. However,
Marsha is the sole maintainer of the blog. No one else at Lawn and Order has access to the blog to update
it.
Jared runs payroll. Like the others, he is the only individual with any access to the payroll records.
Because the records are also on CloudSecure, if something were to happen to Jack, no options are
available for anyone else in the company to access the payroll records.
Overall, Lawn and Order grew at a rapid pace. Chris Taylor applied excellent management skills in
growing the landscaping business. However, Chris needs help in establishing responsible IT personnel
policies for the company. Chris has no background in this area.

Please answer each of questions below and each question should be at least 250 w

Please answer each of questions below and each question should be at least 250 words.
Question1:
Personality changes vary from individual to individual, but some general trends are also observed. For instance, while openness and extraversion decline, conscientiousness increases across early adulthood. Agreeableness is generally flat until mid-adulthood, where it then increases. What factors do you think account for these changes, and how would they account for the “individual differences” we observe over the course of adulthood?
Question2:
Many studies have shown a U-shaped curve of marital happiness, with declines in satisfaction over the course of one’s marital life and then, about 20-25 years later, an increase back to pre/early-marriage levels. Of course, not all individual will show this trend. What factors do you think help to offset, or attenuate, this decline in marital satisfaction over time?
Question 3:
Divorce is a common outcome of unhappy marriages, with the divorce rate hovering around 50% in Canada. The implications of divorce for parents and children are highly consequential. Based on your reading and other literature, under what conditions do you think divorce is a more desirable outcome than staying together in an unhappy marriage? Are there such circumstances? What are the ramifications of divorce on children and parents should parents opt to separate?

You will compose in at least one text-based and one non-text-based genre.

Project 3: Multigenre Persuasive Campaign In Projects 1 and 2, you explored an issue or topic that you cared about a great deal.
In Project 3, you take a stand about that issue or topic. You become an arguer about the topic you researched in Projects 1 and 2. Now it is your turn to use ethos, pathos, logos, text, image, and/or sound to convince your audiences about this matter of importance.
* (My Topic: The impact sports marketing strategies have on sports today) *
For Project 3 you’ll create persuasive artifacts to reach out to different audiences about that issue or topic of importance.
Some terms to define:
The term “Multigenre” in the title of Proiect 3 means you’11 use multiple genres in completing the project. You will compose in at least one text-based and one non-text-based genre. All in all, you will compose 3 artifacts in at least 2 genres. Genres you can choose are any on this list: a persuasive article, letter to an official, public social media post, brochure, advertisement, meme, short story, poem, play, video, infographic, drawing, cartoon, website, song, speech, dance
The word “Campaign” in the title means you will advocate for a particular change or action in the artifacts you create.
All three artifacts should advocate for the same position on the same issue.
DIRECTIONS:
To begin, take a stand and develop an argument based on the issue or topic you researched in Projects 1 and 2 (mentioned above). Then, identify at two audiences you want your argument to reach (Audience: Sports Business stakeholders, and sports teams). Who should know about your argument? Who should respond to your argument? Once you identify your two audiences, consider three genres that will be most effective in reaching them (Genres: Create a Persuasive article, advertisement, and a drawing on the topic). The genres are your choice, but this choice should be informed by your analysis and assessment of your rhetorical situation.
Finally, compose your three genres, developing a researched argument that will target each audience you identify.
* If you clip a picture from the internet for your image-based genre, it’s important to credit it in a caption under the image. Add name of photographer (if you can find it) and/or url.
(at least 500 words for the Multigenre Persuasive Campaign; The article you’ll be creating. the other two genres does not need a word count since they’ll be a advertisement and a drawing.)

However, students will grade it per the following rubric (you can also see this rubric on the grade sheet on this blackboard):

8 Minute YouTube Video
You will prepare an 8 minute video and post it to YouTube or another site to which all students
will have access. If students cannot access your video, this is your problem to fix (for example,
if you require a login). This presentation will be graded by students, not by me, so adjust
accordingly.
I don’t grade your video, nor do I check it. If it doesn’t work, I will not know this, but students
will show no mercy. So please make sure it works. This means that it cannot be protected by a
password, part of a restricted channel, etc.
Your video will make whichever ethical argument you wish to make. However, students will
grade it per the following rubric (you can also see this rubric on the grade sheet on this
blackboard):
The ethical actor, and the action being tested, are clearly identified (1-5, 1 is dismal [“they” is
used repeatedly, and apparently no actual human beings are involved] and 5 is amazing [student
provides a short video demonstrating the ethically tested action]).
The ethical standard(s) being used are selected, and their specific provisions were explained (1-
5, 1 is dismal [the word “ethics” was never used] and 5 is amazing [the student is actually John
Stuart Mills and gives insight into some chapters he has not yet published due to his death]).
The ethical issue is presented and understood (1-5, 1 is dismal [the student has the ethical grasp
of Dick Cheney] and 5 is amazing [student is a professional TV anchor and the issue was crystal
clear]).
The action and actor identified are tested using the described standard (1-5, 1 is dismal [the
student makes no further reference to the tested action nor to the ethical provisions selected] and
5 is amazing [the student matches each part of the action to a perfectly applicable part of the test,
and then convinces you completely]).
Fun and interesting (1-5, 1 is dismal [but very useful if you need to sleep] and 5 is amazing [you
watched it again 3 times – the presentation goes viral on YouTube]).
You will give a working link to your video in the text of your assignment on Canvas.
The narration/voice on the video must be yours. Everything else is within your creative
purview. Again: The voice must be yours – but the images can be of anything.
I will post these for grading by students.
