don’t write it too complex!!

For your cumulative writing assignment, you are asked to create a cohesive essay that serves as an introduction to media studies via the topics weve covered throughout the semester. One way to do this is to act as though you are the author of a media studies textbookhowever, this is only one of many ways in which this could be accomplished. The bulk of the text for this assignment will be made up of the chapter assignments you have written throughout the semester. In addition to the texts that you pull from your chapter assignments, you are asked to write an introduction, conclusion, and transitions between each of the assignments. Your introduction (2 pages) will introduce readers to the field and to the concepts youll be covering in the text. Your conclusion (1-2 pages) will summarize the key concepts from your text and highlight what you think are the most important ideas for readers to understand. The transitions you write between chapter assignments will draw readers from one section to the next and should help readers see the threads that connect the various areas of media studies covered in this class.
