This writing assignment is due Tuesday 03-23-2010
For this writing project you will be either writing a Good Samaritan Law for Michigan Tech's campus or doing a rhetorical analysis of a selected state's Good Samaritan Law.
If you choose to write a Good Samaritan Law for campus be sure to think about the rhetorical aspects of your writing...define the argument, identify who the audience might be and what might be the best ways to communicate your message to the identified audience. Hint: make sure to think and write in terms of ethos, logos, and pathos.
If you choose to rhetorically analyze an existing Good Samaritan Law be sure to follow the format we have used in class. Identify the argument, audience, and identify/analyze examples of ethos, logos, and pathos in the chosen law.
For either choice you will need to cite your sources and create a works cited page at the end of your document. As always, standard "specs" for the paper: must be at least two-pages in length, must be double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman font, and 1" margins.
For reference, this is a link to the Wikipedia article for Good Samaritan Law:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Samaritan_law. In the "External Links" section there are two links to sites that identify and explain Good Samaritan Laws in various places. You may not use the wiki article as a reference in your paper, but you may of course use one of the laws in the external links.
Good luck, have fun.
