ENG105 students in groups of 4-5  researched and analyzed an archived writer’s collected works housed at the Kislak Center - Special Collections Library Archives here at the University of Miami.  Groups selected a few artifacts from their assigned archive which they felt represented rhetorical choices of the writer - analyzed these artifacts rhetorically - and presented their evidence using theoretical principles as a frame.  In their analyses, groups gave a clear account of how their chosen artifacts provided proof that the writing was shaped by the writer’s choices and constraints as they “made-meaning” in the context of history, politics, culture, etc. of their time.  Groups delivered their final reports as multi-modal submissions and presentations.
