The goal of this assignment is to translate a scholarly article written for your field or a related field of study for a public audience in the style of a general science magazine like New Scientist.
1. Choose a New Scientist article.
This is the article I choose:
Hamzelou, Jessica. Mystery Illness Found to Have Genetic Cause. New Scientist, vol. 244, no. 3261/3262, Dec. 2019, pp. 1616.
This is a link to that article:
2. Using the article from the New Scientist, develop an outline for the structure of general science articles by reading at least three additional articles in New Scientist magazine that report the results of a single scientific study
3. Find the full-length research journal article that matches the report of the study you chose from New Scientist. Locate, read, and analyze the abstract, introduction, results, and discussion from the paired scholarly article.

4. Translate” (rewrite) the scholarly article in the style of a general science article published in New Scientist by following the outline you generated.
5. On a separate page, write a reflective analysis. As part of your analysis, consider the rhetorical choices you made as you constructed your translation. Offer a rational for each of your decisions that connects the features of your transition to your larger rhetorical context. For example, if you had to translate the title of the scholarly article for a public audience, explain why your new title is the most appropriate on for your public audience.
