When we talk about “models” for the RIP, what we’re talking about are texts that already exist in the world that we can model our own work after. Model texts can help you examine how rhetors in the real world have already:
-appealed to a certain audience
-written in a certain genre
-used a certain venue
-written with attention to a certain context
-composed a text to achieve a certain purpose or transmit a certain message
When looking for model texts, remember that your model text does not have to PERFECTLY resemble what you want to do! You might just look for texts that share ONE big thing in common with your RIP. That could be texts that appeal to the same audience, use the same genre, and so on. So even if my text is a rap battle on Mars that appeals to an elderly audience, finding real world texts that ARE NOT rap battles from Mars but DO appeal to an elderly audience can be productive for me. Or, finding other rap battles (even if they don’t appeal to an elderly audience) can be productive.
For this homework, please do the following:
1. Find three model texts that you think could be useful for your RIP. These might be electronic (online) or physical (things you can hold or touch with your hands).
2. Upload those here as links—or if your models are physical, you can take a picture and upload it, or just describe it in full detail.
3. For each model, describe what it is and describe exactly which parts of your project’s rhetorical situation it will help you understand. The more specific you can be, the better your RIP will turn out—I guarantee it. Students who are lazy with their model text work are usually taking the first step towards mediocre (or nonpassing) RIP projects. This stuff matters!
