Climate Rhetoric Analysis. Locate four media artifacts (texts, articles, videos, etc.) that align with the topic you already identified and described for Assignment 1a. Two of these artifacts must be popular science sources (newspapers, magazines, video clips, podcasts), and the other two must be academic science sources (peer-reviewed journal articles or presentations). Rhetorically analyze those four artifacts, detailing the rhetorical features you see in each, and comparing and contrasting the popular science artifacts with the academic science artifacts. You have already identified and described your topic in the previous assignment, and no further description of the topic is needed for Assignment.
For this Climate Rhetoric Analysis project you will produce a 1000-word rhetorical analysis (approximately 4 pages double-spaced) that critically evaluates the rhetorical features of the four media artifacts you’ve chosen. Your job is to describe and analyze the artifacts themselves, using what we’ve learned about rhetoric to help you evaluate the artifacts. Your evaluation of these artifacts represents your argument in this essay. Refer to the Week 3 readings and our in-class discussions about rhetorical analysis for more details about what should appear in a rhetorical analysis.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d 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.
