You can either do 2 pages for the movement and 2 pages for the organization, or 2.5 for movement and 1.5 for organization since there are more questions for the movement.

Instructions from the Professor are attached. It has instructions for the presentation and the final paper, however please just focus on the presentation part of the instructions. You do not need to make a powerpoint or anything like that. It would be best to just type out the question and then answer it right below so I know which content is for which question. You can either do 2 pages for the movement and 2 pages for the organization, or 2.5 for movement and 1.5 for organization since there are more questions for the movement. I will paste the link for the organization below, along with which movement to focus on.

Choose something that you are interested in, that is fascinating for you.

This essay will emulate any (and many) of the thesis-driven articles replete with evidence, examples and support investigating the intersections of identity and food OR culture and food OR humanity and food. As such, it seeks to provide just one possible, captivating and persuasive answer (with tons of proof!) to any of the following questions: 1) What does food say about me? 2) What does food say about my culture? 3) What does food reveal about humanity in general?
I won’t be impressed with nice, squeaky-clean essays that defend an idea I’ve heard a thousand times and follow the five-paragraph format of your ye olde high school days. Imagine you are writing to a learned, food-saavy, academic audience who want to hear/see something new about food and have their own ideas challenged. Your idea must be original in order to get them excited. And then persuasive, well-defended and important to get them to believe & care.
So, you will have to PROVE an ORIGINAL thought or idea through evidence, illustrations and analysis similar to the essay readings we’ve covered in class! You may even want to quote texts we’ve read in class as expert evidence to bolster and defend statements and ideas. Remember to concentrate on one claim per paragraph and to slowly and carefully connect points A to B through analysis like we covered in class. You may also want to brainstorm ideas that relate to you on a personal level (essays are personal!), your own experiences (anecdotal evidence), etc. You may even feel compelled to do a little research like I did in finding “Consider the Lobster,” for example, that we read in class. One of the biggest rules of essay writing is TO HAVE FUN. Choose something that you are interested in, that is fascinating for you. If you are bored with the material, your material will be boring for the audience. Don’t be afraid to take risks! That’s exactly what essays encourage!
This won’t be easy. It will require a lot of thought, a lot of research, a lot of energy, and a lot of time: time spent actively trying to imitate stylistic choices, structures, modes of persuasion and evidence-building that we see in our close reading of several essays over these next three weeks. AND RIP 5 PARAGRAPH ESSAYS! Yes, this prompt is also asking you to imitate macro structures, too — organizational methods employed by our model essayists. And thank god essays can be more inventive than intro-body paragraph-1-2-3-conclusion-see-ya!
Essays inherently have to do with persuasion, and persuasion has to do with rhetoric, and rhetoric has to do with the rhetorical situation (that triangle!) and rhetorical/stylistic choices that develop ethos and logos and pathos, etc. to connect to a particular audience interested in all things food. All of these elements are co-dependent. Our careful dissection of each over the quarter has led you to this point, and this point is:
to make a leap with your writing!
Situate yourself in a place to make an audacious and interesting connection, and then set forth proving that connection to your audience.
Along with the writing process, you may completely change your idea based on what you are finding and discovering along the way. But start somewhere. Remember, writing is sometimes a way of thinking, a process toward developing an idea! We don’t always have the idea first and then later write about it. Part of the process of writing reveals things to us, shows us something, and so, in short, your ideas will come to you during the writing (and reading) process, over these next 3 weeks, even once you’ve already started and are already thinking you know what you are doing or what you want to say! Be open to change! And be flexible! Just because you started with one idea doesn’t mean you should finish with it; don’t be stubborn. Your first idea may lead into something far more brilliant if you take it up and follow that new lead! LEAP
I expect at least 6 pages by your Final publish stage, not including a properly formatted Works Cited page (so, if you include the Works Cited page, you will have at least 7 pages total!)
Speaking of a Works Cited… what about the formatting?
I expect you to follow MLA formatting guidelines for every assignment in this class, as well as every single publish of every single assignment. Always use 12 pt. Times New Roman (what I’m using right now!), always use 1” margins, always have a header with your name, my name, class name and date, always mark the page number, etc. If you need to refresh yourselves or even teach yourselves MLA formatting guidelines, go to this website here for ALL your answers: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ Links to an external site.
Additionally, I will be looking for proper in-text and Works Cited citations for summary, paraphrase or direct quoting of outside materials that isn’t common knowledge (by the Final publish stage)!
Please write something about China food culture make up a story and put yourself in the story in order to put your own experience in the essasy please(you may need some rescarch)

Do you know anything about these keto and paleo things that seems to be everywhere now?

This assignment will emulate any (and many) of the thesis-driven articles replete with evidence, examples and support investigating the intersections of identity and food OR culture and food OR humanity and food. As such, it seeks to provide just one possible, captivating and persuasive answer (with tons of proof!) to just one of the following questions: 1) What does food say about me? 2) What does food say about my culture? 3) What does food reveal about humanity in general?
From Mishan’s “What We Write About When We Write About Food”:
Still, when contemporary food writers (and, I suppose, I am one) stray from celebrating flavors to probe the larger issues surrounding the parade of dishes to our tables — exploitation of labor, abuse of animals, climate change, the homogenizing of cuisines and cultures under globalization, systemic injustices that allow millions of people to go hungry each year — some readers complain. Food should not be political, they insist. Food is universal; food unites us. Let us have our cakeLinks to an external site. in peace.
For this Assignment #2 Brainstorm (or “Shitty First publish”): ”you need to do this part”!!
Let’s muddy the waters a little bit and get our hands dirty and wrestle out some potential seeds that could blossom into giant fruiting trees down the road! When you consider food carefully, what topics come up for you? Mishan mentions “exploitation of labor, abuse of animals, climate change, the homogenizing of cuisines and cultures under globalization, systemic injustices that allow millions of people to go hungry each year…” as topics that swell up around the topic of food for her. Which of those topics that she’s listed have you heard about, read something in the news about or have considered before/have an opinion about? If you haven’t considered these topics around food, which might interest you enough to do some digging around? Jot down any thoughts you have around Mishan’s topics.
Now brainstorm any additional topics and thoughts that pop up for you, personally, around food. Have you ever dieted? Lost sleep over body issues and your relationship to food? Do you know anything about these Keto and Paleo things that seems to be everywhere now? Do you follow any food bloggers or YouTubers? Consider yourself a foodie? Watch The Great British Bake-Off or Top Chef religiously? Any mukbang now and then? Ever eaten an insect? Or anything else your typical American would find “gross” or “unappealing”? etc. etc. etc.
Jot down any thoughts you have about any or all of the above and in any way that you find helpful. Maybe you want to draw a bubble diagram. Maybe you want to make a bullet point list. Maybe you want to record yourself talking. Whatever. I simply want you to start engaging with the topic of food and its relationship with you, your culture, and our world and humanity. Upload any kind of file here to show how you are beginning to engage with Assignment #2!
Oh yeah, and don’t forget what Anne Lamott says: “The first publish is the child’s publish, where you let it all pour out and then let it romp all over the place, knowing that no one is going to see it and that you can shape it later. You just let this childlike part of you channel whatever voices and visions come through and onto the page.”

What is it?

What is it?
This assignment is designed to work on our understanding of imitation, not copying. That is, borrowing the tactics and techniques that a writer skillfully employs and applying these concepts in our own writing for a purposeful effect. In order to do this successfully, we must understand why an author chose a particular rhetorical (or stylistic) technique based on its effect on the message or content being transmitted, and then how to adapt that technique to our own message or content in our own writing projects, always thinking about who we are communicating with (the specific, intended audience), and the genre or medium we are working in. For any genre (recipes, tweets, mystery novels, dating site bios, resumes, lab reports, etc.) there are always model texts out there for us to find, read carefully, see how they communicate effectively, figure out what skills they are using to do that, and then borrow those skills and employ them in our own recipes, tweets, mystery novels, dating site bios, resumes, lab reports, etc.
You get it. We are learning how to adapt our messages for any circumstance by studying how it’s done by people who have already mastered how to do it effectively!
In this assignment, we will be working on a “Recommendation Letter” that might appear in The New York Times Magazine. Do you have to write about a snack you stress-eat? Nope. Your cravings for exotic fruits? Nope. Neither. (Actually, I’d avoid any similarities in content to any of the “Recommendation Letters” we read, especially since you don’t want to venture anywhere near copying these authors.) The content of your piece should relate to a food item, yes, but always starting with things you are familiar with in your own life—truths that resonate with you and your background. The skills you employ in delivering that content, however, should be modeled after the choices in style of any (and all!) of the model texts we have read and discussed. We have only seen a few, at this point, but as we continue working through this assignment over the next two and a half weeks, we will add more and more model texts for you to glean from and imitate and improve your writing. Yes, your letter WILL KEEP CHANGING over the next few weeks! And not just minor changes, but MAJOR ones…
WARNING:
Don’t get too attached to your first publish—it will change dramatically!
Three Globally-revised publishs? (Yup, yup and yup!)
Rough publish*- Sunday midnight, October 9th (beginning of Week 3)- This is where you get to play and explore and, yep, begin to develop your ideas. The only condition is that your Letter of Recommendation revolves around food. But you’ll want to do more than that, too. As you develop your style by imitating our model Letters of Recommendation, you’ll begin to find, too, that the content developed explores ideas beyond simply food simultaneously. Aim for around 750 words here in proper MLA formatting. Note: no “Accompanying Analysis” will be necessary this round!(Just 750 words please finish as fast as you can just a rough publish)
