You will analyze the rhetorical situation of your chosen text in order to gain a fuller understanding of how and why arguments are being made in which contexts and for which audiences.
In your introduction paragraph, first, determine the rhetor’s reputations and purpose (thesis) and the intended audience. Next, provide a brief summary of the text no longer than 200 words. In your thesis statement identify what you believe to be the main strategies the author uses that may, or may not, emotionally, logically, and/or ethically convince or persuade the intended audience.
Finally, in In the body paragraphs of your essay, you should analyze how those strategies work, or not, to support the author’s argument or purpose. You might also want to analyze the genre the author uses to present the argument.
Format Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. Sources ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
