The rhetorical situation describes all the components that influence the composition of a particular text.  Altering even one of the components will result in a different text.  Thus, you will have to isolate and consider each of these elements when composing your transmedia texts.

In preparation for class, please read Writer/Designer chapter 2: Analyzing Multimodal Texts (pg. 20-31).  Be sure to view, listen to, or watch all the examples in the book!
