Informal Pitches

Today you will share your current plans for your major project with the members of your small group. As Writer/Designer explains, “A pitch is a short presentation that explains how the what and the how of your idea might come together in the final project” (55).

Use the questions on p. 56 of Writer/Designer to guide your discussion. You can record your informal pitch on the Small Group page of your Participation Log.


  1. Read pp. 90–92 of Writer/Designer (on proposals).

  2. Review Ten Design Tips page.

  3. If you want to get ahead, watch Up and Running with Online Social Video (49m 28s) on (free with your VT.EDU login). If you have trouble, go to the Virginia Tech login page first.
