WHAT IS THIS PAGE?

Below is the Service-Learning Writing Project (SLWP) Community Partner Agency, Agency Contact People (with contact information), and SLWP Students (with contact information) - along with miscellaneous Agency Notes - who will be in partnership with John A. Dowell's WRA135 class for Spring Semester of 2009 at Michigan State University's Department of Writing, Rhetoric, & American Cultures.

NOTE TO PARTNERSHIP AGENCY CONTACTS

I have made every attempt to keep your agency's information up-to-date; please inform me of any needed clarifications, amplifications, or corrections. Also please note you may see what my SLWP students have done for your agency at any time by simply clicking on their name(s) in the "Note(s)" column, taking you to their "Service-Learning Writing Project Webfolio" which, in part, constitutes 45% of their Final Evaluation for the course.

NOTE TO PARTNERSHIP SLWP STUDENTS

As you see, your agency's staff will be viewing what you write for them; I - your instructor - am IN NO WAY your "sole audience." Please always bear this in mind as you submit material in your SLWP Webfolio.

NOTE TO ALL INVOLVED

Please bookmark this page. I offer my thanks to everyone, and ask you all to please immediately inform me of any needed policy/partnership changes, amplifications, or clarifications as the Spring Semester of 2009 develops.

With thanks to all....
John A. Dowell

Spring '09 City of East Lansing Recycling Projects:

Specifics to be addressed shortly, but Dave has indicated an excited interest in promoting materials (videos, brochures) targeting MSU students living off-campus in East Lansing, likely including landlords and fraternity/sorority houses.

Students should focus on creating products that (1) are informative, (2) will motivate fellow students to recycle, and (3) communicate most effectively.

These promotional materials may include - but are not limited to - the following:

  • You Tube video
  • 15 and 30 second PSAs to air on local radio and/or TV
  • Articles promoting recycling which could be sent to State News (especially articles linking climate change and recycling)
  • Short video which could be aired on EL Cable access channel
  • Brochures aimed at promoting recycling to students
  • Facebook page
As Dave says, "I'd really like students to come up with ideas since they have a better idea of how to most effectively communicate with fellow students."
