Brief rhetorical analysis | English homework help


700 words

This week is where our theory meets practice! We’ve spent three weeks honing our understanding of the shifting rhetorical situation, how to appeal to different audiences using different rhetorical appeals, and we’ve practiced identifying the six core arguments. This week, we are going to take a leap into generative rhetoric and practice actually evaluating other author’s texts and creating our own analyses. 

As you move through the assigned readings and author texts, I want you to consider what ways we can broaden our definition of argument as established but our ancient rheotors. 

Module Objectives:

  1. Construct a Rhetorical Analysis of another author’s argument, identifying modes, appeals, and claim types 
  2. Choose a topic of inquiry for the remainder of the course 
  3. Select two argument types most suitable for your selected topic, begin drafting hybrid argument.
