Using APA style, prepare a 500-word synthesis paper following these recommendations:
1. Select an argument based on three case studies, two of which we have already read and a third that you choose:
Xin and Haijie (2011)
Meyer (2017)
A third text of your choosing — This text must be credible, in English, and at least 500 words
2. Build your argument based on these three sources, integrating their material with your commentary.
3. Avoid plagiarism by properly paraphrasing, using direct quotations, and using in-text citations.
4. Include the major components of an academic paper, including an introduction (with a thesis statement), a body (with topic sentences for each paragraph), and a conclusion. Paragraphs should be coherent and demonstrate unity.

there are two parts for this order if i assign you for the this part i’m going to assign you for the second part as well.
For the first part of this assignment, you will choose an issue that is important to you and use the media tools in Medium to compose a multimodal text that raises awareness about your topic. You can choose an issue that is political, like voting rights or environmental policy reform, an issue that is social, like high stakes testing in education or the importance of public parks, or individual/personal, like the need for personal fitness or the importance of fighting breast cancer, and anything in between. The most important criteria for choosing your issue is that it is important to you and it is something you think others should care about as well. Your audience for this Medium essay is made up of adults (18+) in the general population (not a specialist audience). You should think about how to craft your Medium essay in order to appeal to as broad an audience as possible. Before composing, you should define for yourself your purpose, stance, context, and think about how to use medium and design in Storify. The minimum number of words for your Medium essay is 500, but there is no maximum number of words you must use in your essay–your length should be appropriate for your rhetorical goals.

PREPARATION Stage 4, the Multimodal Presentation assignment cluster, includes 3

Stage 4, the Multimodal Presentation assignment cluster, includes 3 due dates. Each of these due dates will allow me to offer you help and advice while you conceptualize your project and produce a draft. Stage 4 in its entirety is worth 10 points of your final grade, divided as follows:
Multimodal Presentation Proposal due November 19 at 11:59PM (2.5 points)
Multimodal Draft Workshop due December 3 at 11:59PM (2.5 points)
Multimodal Presentation Final Draft due December 10 at 11:59PM (5 points)
Because each project will be unique, it is difficult for me to give precise technical directions, which is why you will also send me a proposal before beginning work on your project. However, here are some guidelines for what I will be looking for:
Create a polished, substantial, and engaging multi-modal project that:
Can be accessed by instructors and peers
Draws on at least two of the five modes of communication:
Visual – typeface, lines, shapes, background, color, transitions, quality of images, visual  coherence, repetition, contrast
Audio – intonation of spoken words, sound effects, ambient noise, music, volume, silence,  transitions from different audio clips
Gestural – facial expressions, gestures, body language
Spatial – line spacing, navigation, transitions, size of page, size of photos, proximity of photos and other elements to each other, line length, visual salience, white space, visual organization, alignment
Linguistic – written text or spoken words/narration, word choice, delivery, organization of ideasSends a coherent message to an intended non-academic audience
Sends a coherent message to an intended non-academic audience
Reflects on your research process, mentioning any unexpected discoveries you made, insights you gained about yourself as a researcher, and traces the evolution of you thinking on your topic over the course of the semester.
Here is a non-exhaustive list of possible ideas for creating your multi-modal project. You can do anything, as long as your project is shareable on this Canvas course, draws on 2 modes of communication, and targets a specific non-academic audience!
Adobe Spark Glideshow–another Adobe product that allows you to add images, videos, text, etc. You have free access to as a U student to create an ad or PSA with strong visual features (the link to Adobe Creative Cloud is on the left menu–you will need to disable pop-up blockers) see:

Podcast–interview people whom your audience would find credible, reliable, and knowledgeable about the issue for a podcast (if you create a podcast, you will also need to create a “script” that includes images and text; see Someone Knows Something, ep. 1 (Links to an external site.)–you can see the links that podcasts use to help provide their listeners with additional information, like graphic elements, images, newspaper links, etc.)
Photo Essay–create a photo essay on the issue (you must take your own photos; if you choose this option, you must put them into Adobe Spark Glide and add words and sound, which could include narration or music, or both) (see Myanmar (Links to an external site.))
Video–(Use Adobe Video, Youtube, your smart phone, or any other video software that your can share without requiring your peers to ‘create an account’) create a short video (2-3 min.) using graphics, clips, images, voice over, interview,  on-site clips, text, etc.
Adobe or WordPress or another webpage–create a site with multiple pages that includes text, videos, images, graphs, etc. (see #Me Too (Links to an external site.))
Write/Illustrate a book: (this can be a narrative or poetry)(drawings must demonstrate quality in terms of visual appeal, there are words, color, is in book format–in Microsoft Word or Adobe’s InDesign you can create a booklet spread that mimics a book)
