News Reporting And Rendition Of Some Value Laden Words In English And Arabic, Rafid Al-Rubaye, Saleem Al-Fahad

Jerash for Research and Studies Journal مجلة جرش للبحوث والدراسات

Language plays an essential role in achieving objective news stories in journalism. With the progress made over the last decades in the fields of media and telecommunications, news stories written in a given language are expected to be translated and presented for the audiences of other languages. It should be remembered that the translator has a significant role to play in observing the objectivity of the texts rendered from a cultural

This OER packet contains the course materials for ENGL 1301 - English Composition I .

Because reading and writing work together, your writing skills will improve as you read. Eventually, your instructors will ask you to complete assignments specifically designed to meet one of the four purposes. As you will see, the purpose for writing will guide you through ...


Outcomes Of Training In Smart Home Technology Adoption: A Living Laboratory Study, David Wright, Daniel Burton Shank, Thomas Yarbrough 2021 Missouri University of Science and Technology

Outcomes Of Training In Smart Home Technology Adoption: A Living Laboratory Study, David Wright, Daniel Burton Shank, Thomas Yarbrough

English and Technical Communication Faculty Research & Creative Works

While various forms of smart home technology have been available for decades, they have yet to achieve widespread adoption. Although they have risen in popularity during recent years, the general public continue to rate smart home devices as overly complex compared to their benefits. This article reports the results of an eight-month study into the effects of training on smart home technology adoption. Building upon the results of a previous study, and using the same living laboratory approach, we studied the effects of training on the attitudes of a group of residents toward use of smart home technology. Results show ...

La Plage Des Enfants Perdus De Jilali Ferhati: Une Cinécriture Ou L'Étude De Quelques Motifs, Rochdi Elmanira

Dirassat

This article deals with the centrality of modern cinema in the work of JILALI FERHATI «La plage des enfants perdus». Through the motifs of the cine-writing, the author proposes a grid of analysis that focuses on the cinematographic practice where the filmmaker and the spectator are the custodians of the work and its meaning. The article presents the present of representation and the multiplicity of forms perceived through the play on the tools of cinema and direction.


Advancing Writing Analytics Methodologies: A Hybrid Approach To Analyzing Errors In Automated Rhetorical Feedback, Elena Cotos 2021 Iowa State University

Advancing Writing Analytics Methodologies: A Hybrid Approach To Analyzing Errors In Automated Rhetorical Feedback, Elena Cotos

World Languages and Cultures Conference Papers, Posters and Proceedings

Automated writing evaluation (AWE) entered the scene of academic writing pedagogy with a promising potential to enhance writing development through individualized formative feedback. However, despite evidence of positive impact (Stevenson, 2016), AWE technologies have been vehemently criticized because, to writing teachers, their engines running in the background are nothing but black-boxes (Herrington & Moran, 2012) that evaluate writing based on aggregated quantifiable text features (Shermis & Burstein, 2013). Writing, however, is essentially about meaning making and reflects rhetorical aspects of different social and academic genres (Perelman, 2012). This criticism requires revisiting a challenging yet foundational question for academic writing teachers: How can ...


Video For All: An Argument Towards Standardization Of Video Production Practices And Research, Kelley Bostian 2021 Kennesaw State University

Video For All: An Argument Towards Standardization Of Video Production Practices And Research, Kelley Bostian

Master of Arts in Professional Writing Capstones

Instructional videos, a subset of video pedagogy, are becoming valuable pedagogical tools for instructors within both higher education and professional writing environments. By researching contemporary academic literature and creating video artifacts that put theory into practice, this capstone project answers three important questions: 1) How could video pedagogy shift student attitudes or engagement with course content in digital learning environments? 2) What benefits and limitations of standardizing and researching video pedagogy are valuable for educators interested in creating video to understand, including educators with limited or no video production experience? 3) In what ways could certain production techniques in video ...


Developing The Facilitative Health And Well-Being Tool: Freeing Writing, William O. Fogarty 2021 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College

Developing The Facilitative Health And Well-Being Tool: Freeing Writing, William O. Fogarty

Creative Studies Graduate Student Master's Projects

Research into processes of self, including self-concept clarity, identity, and meaning and purpose in life, has demonstrated that human beings that feel they know themselves tend to experience positive health and well-being outcomes, while people who feel they don’t know themselves tend to experience more negative health and well-being outcomes. These findings indicate that knowing oneself is essential. Thus, the facilitative tool I am creating with this Master’s Project, Freeing Writing, combines the power of self-knowledge and self-discovery with the healing power of expressive writing. In this manuscript, I synthesize the scientific research, Design Thinking process, and real-world ...


Nonprofit Social Media Internships: A Handbook, Allison LaRoy 2021 University of Louisville

Nonprofit Social Media Internships: A Handbook, Allison Laroy

College of Arts & Sciences Senior Honors Theses

This thesis examines how nonprofits can best prepare their interns and how interns can best prepare themselves for a role in engaging audiences through social media. Through a literature review on nonprofit social media and internships, a series of qualitative interviews with interns and supervisors, and my own lived experiences as a social media intern, I develop a handbook for nonprofit social media internships. This guide is relevant to the specific experiences of nonprofit social media internships, includes advice on training, mentorship, and best practices, and finally, it incorporates further resources on nonprofit social media that interns and supervisors can ...


Big Data, Congress, And The Rhetoric Of Technology: Or, How To Industrialize Cyberspace, Christopher Lee Adamczyk 2021 State University of New York at Farmingdale

Big Data, Congress, And The Rhetoric Of Technology: Or, How To Industrialize Cyberspace, Christopher Lee Adamczyk

Poroi

As new and developing technologies impact public and private life, rhetoricians would be remiss to overlook the deliberative rhetorics that justify their development, implementation, use-value, and impact. Using the 2013 joint congressional hearing “Next Generation Computing and Big Data Analytics” as an example, I argue that justificatory rhetorics about technology intersect with rhetoric from technology, obscuring information vital to critical deliberation. I demonstrate that the expert witnesses at this hearing draw upon rhetoric traditionally associated with American industrialization. Doing so allows them to articulate Big Data as a resource situated upon a metaphorical, American landscape and thus encourages the public ...
