Case Scenario

There has been a recent multi-neighborhood foodborne outbreak involving E. coli (Escherichia coli) in Sentinel City®. Sixty elementary school-age children were out sick this week. Several adults and children from all four neighborhoods have been evaluated in local clinics and the emergency room with complaints of abdominal pain, sudden severe diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue. What form of formal mass communication would be most effective for educating the public about the causes, symptoms, and prevention of E. coli in the city? Use government websites or scholarly literature to support your rationale for the mass communication method you select. In 150 words or less, develop a newspaper script, poster, billboard appropriate, or social media for adults and teens and one specifically for elementary school-age children. How would you communicate the same information informally? When preparing information to share with the community, consider the demographics of each neighborhood and health literacy.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
