Portfolio 3

Throughout the course of this semester I was asked to accomplish different tasks in my English composition class. I’ve learned a lot from the requirements in order to receive the best grade I can. The last portfolio due for this class has to do with the creation of a video; directed to a specific audience, persuading it to act upon your research. My research topic again, Social Anxiety Disorder, is directed to young adults. I wanted my topic to be based off of what most of us go through in life. When we are placed in new situations or surrounded by new people we can get a bit timid and secluded at times, depending on the situation. In some cases, though, there are people who can’t confront strange or social situations because of this disorder. It prohibits the subject from involving him/herself in their daily routines. This extreme amount of anxiety and fear of social situations can cause great distress to the sufferer. I believe this will be a way to reaching out to young adults because it is teenagers and young adults who are the main ones affected by S.A.D. In order to get my message across to my audience I believe it would be better to use a serious tone in the video, and by that I mean font that looks serious and is informative at the same time. Images that speak for themselves, and sound that relates to both. The sound would have to be slow because I want my audience to grasp onto the text more than anything else. I’ve used previous sources to create a logical sequence within the video. I will give different aspects of my topic, such as: what is S.A.D.? What is it like? What are the treatments? How can we help? All of these questions will be answered by the development of the sources, and alongside have actual short video clips within the video of my creation.

As this semester is coming to an end I have learned to pay closer attention to the bigger picture instead of what I’m used to, the details. Either way it goes they both assist in achieving what needs to be done. I have also learned to research when I have nothing else to do, getting a better feel and knowledge about what is going on around the world that many may not be aware of. I’ve written a lot, not only for class, but everything seems to be easier to explain verbally if I have first written my thoughts out on paper. The way I think may come off as being complicated and very analytic, but to me it works just fine. As long as my point gets across and people understand what I’m trying to communicate, then no one should worry about the way I think, but myself. With time I think everything will broaden and I will have more knowledge about more things, therefore, making it easier to write. I’m getting more and more interested in writing about what is asked and expected of me.

Ideal audience…

The ideal audience for my research project, S.A.D., is teenagers and young adults. This text ( clearly states who is normally affected by this mental disorder and provides background information about Social Anxiety Disorder such as: what SAD is, the symptoms, causes of it, and so on. The author chose this audience simply because it informs people within the same age group, early teens through young adults, of what exactly it is and how to treat it. To achieve its purpose, the author also provides statistics and in-text citation, making the text more credible.

Portfolio 3

This last portfolio for English composition class is about communicating the purpose of your topic through a video. I am relieved that all this work is ending with something new and a bit more exciting, rather than having to write the usual paper. It is something you can be creative about and you get to choose all you want to include in your video. Again, my topic is about Social Anxiety Disorder and I want  to find a way to get my message across to the audience. I’ve never done something like this, so it may be somewhat challenging and will definitely require lots of patience, but I’m pretty positive about the outcome and what I can inform the viewers about with more details through the use of sound, text, and images.

Video.  I’ve decided to choose this video simply because it relates to my topic of Social Anxiety Disorder. This video is inspiring to me because  the girl in it was affected by Social Anxiety Disorder and is reaching out to anyone who also suffers from it providing them with encouraging words and giving them tips on how to treat this disorder. She has gradually overcome this disorder and by the looks of it, it seems that medication has worked for her instead of talking to a professional. I think this video is also beneficial to other sufferers by the amount of comments left on this video.


To answer the question: “Have you ever used something from the internet in an  unethical way?” Yes, I have. My question is who hasn’t? Whether it was for personal reasons or just for fun, I have done it before. I do believe that whoever released the various: books, photographs,music etc. should be credited and recognized for their work, but I do believe that copyright laws could reinforce the laws just a bit more. I like the fact that we can find just about anything on the internet and actually use it, but I also think that because it isn’t our work originally, we could take a few extra minutes, depending on the amount of work used, to give credit to the people who deserve it.

Project Intro.

How should an introduction to a research topic start? From what aspect? Should it be professional? I started my introduction to the review of literature a few days ago and I personally think it could use some work. I tend to like more professional work, but I love to mention personal experiences or relate it to life as it occurs. My introduction, as of now, talks about Social Anxiety Disorder and explains exactly what it is. I also chose to mention what a doctor from one of my sources says in an interview, but I’m not too sure if that’s the right approach.
