For Project , you will produce a 2–page magazine-/journalistic-style profile of an individual involved in social or cultural entrepreneurship. Project 2 should engage you in: • reviewing profile pieces and identifying how they’re written (including style, tone, approach, etc.); • identifying and researching a specific person involved in social or cultural entrepreneurial work; and • writing a profile piece laid out like a magazine article and written in a journalistic style. Once you’ve chosen the person you want to profile, use reporter-style questions to start digging into their background and researching the work they do: Who is this person and how are they engaged in social or cultural entrepreneurship? (Where do they work? Where did they go to school? What attracted this person to their career? Who or what communities are they advocating for? What sorts of change are they attempting to make in the world?) • Where does this person work? (What sort of organization/s? With what sort of affiliations?) • What does this person do? (What are some of the things they do as part of their work? Who do they interact with? How do they spend their days?) • What are some of the impacts of their work? (Has their social or cultural entrepreneurial work resulted in change in the world, media attention, securing funds, etc.?) Again, if you have access to the person and can interview them, you can do an interview-based profile. If not, however, you can write more of a research-based profile based on what you’ve researched, read, and gathered about and by them. Your Project 2 product will be a magazine-style article about 2 pages long; feel free to lay the piece out as such and to include photos, graphics, samples, examples, and materials that help you show who this person is and what they do. Your article should be written in a general journalistic style. In the profile: 1. include elements that a typical profile piece includes (e.g., snappy, descriptive title; byline); 2. introduce the person, for instance: who they are, where they went to school (or where they go to school), what they do professionally, what they write/do/create personally, etc.; 3. describe the work they do and how it is social and/or cultural entrepreneurship in nature; 4. review or explain or describe some of their work (include examples!); 5. conclude by discussing the impact their work has had or that they want it to have on the world; and 6. include a works cited section where you provide complete citations for all of the work you summarized, quoted from, paraphrased, and otherwise used in your Project 2work.

PROJECT 2 some example work (examples and suggestions) PROJECT 2 If you haven’t done so yet, read the Project 2 ASSIGNMENT first before you review these examples! PROJECT 2 • This document includes some example student work that should help you understand the ways in which profile pieces can be written. • Please NOTE that the assignment that these students were writing for was different from the assignment that you are doing for Project 2 . (These students were writing profile pieces about people working in the nonprofit/public interest sector.) • However, even though their assignment was different, I think these are good examples of the sorts of moves you might make in your Project 2 work. • NOTE that these are just examples! PROJECT 2 TITLES PROJECT 2 smart, catchy title PROJECT 2 title provides a descriptive snapshot of the person profiled PROJECT 2 excellent title and subtitle PROJECT 2 INTRODUCTIONS PROJECT 2 engaging, interesting introduction that does a great job introducing the person being profiled PROJECT 2 engaging, interesting introduction that does a great job introducing the person being profiled PROJECT 2 engaging, interesting introduction that grabs readers’ attention PROJECT 2 engaging, interesting introduction that opens with a typical warning most of us have heard PROJECT 2 PROFILES PROJECT 2 body text offers specific description and examples PROJECT 2 body text discussion is anchored to the particular social, cultural, and economic climate the person is working within PROJECT 2 body text includes compelling quotes from the person being profiled, which help to support the points the author is making PROJECT 2 appropriate to this profile, the author has included compelling examples of work the person profiled has done the author integrates the examples well, and explains them eloquently PROJECT 2 CONCLUSIONS PROJECT 2 the conclusion offers some good summary points, and two great quotes from the person profiled PROJECT 2 the conclusion offers a quick discussion of implications, a quote from the person profiled, and points readers to where they can find more information PROJECT 2 the conclusion offers an overall discussion of the impact of the person’s work, and a quote from an influential supporter of the person profiled PROJECT 2 FORMATTING AND LAYOUT PROJECT 2 great title PROJECT 2 excellent title info PROJECT 2 excellent inclusion of quotes PROJECT 2 fantastic formatting PROJECT 2 fantastic formatting clear, well- written subheadings PROJECT 2 clear, well- written subheadings PROJECT 2 • If seeing other examples would help you, pay close attention to the week 3 case by Josh Steimle, “Social Entrepreneur Profile: David Bishop of Soap Cycling.” This is another good example of a profile-focused, journalistic -in -style article. • You might also consider looking for other example profile pieces and reading them carefully to see what moves the writers are making, what content they include, and what features they offer (e.g., look specifically at the titles and subtitles, analyze how they introduce and conclude the piece). PROJECT 2 • You have two weeks to complete Project 2, so manage your time carefully! • During week 3, you should: – identify WHO you want to write about and interview them or start doing research – figure out what you want to include, show, and tell in your article, and start drafting – choose images you want to include in your article and think about the overall layout • During week 4, you should: – flesh out your draft – review the grading rubric I will share with you – leave time to edit, polish, and finalize your article
