Rhetorical Analysis / Reader Response
For your major essay, you will write another rhetorical analysis, this time combined with a response or rebuttal.
Format: MLA paper format and documentation.
Sources: at least one source (the essay you are analyzing). Use of additional sources is encouraged but not required.
Length: Three pages, approx 800 – 1000 words
First, read/view the texts that I have uploaded for you and here is other options to choose (https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/can-reading-make-you-happier), ( https://www.economist.com/leaders/2016/06/04/under-attack) . Choose one of these texts or uploaded texts to be the subject of your analysis and response. You will notice that there are a variety of texts to choose from, including videos and hybrid written/spoken multimedia texts.
Approach your rhetorical analysis much like you have with the previous assignments in this unit. Identify elements such as audience, purpose and context as a means of understanding how the text communicates its main idea (also known as a thesis). Also identify and provide examples of the types of appeals used by the author, pathos, logos, ethos, etc.
The new element for this assignment is that you will be responding to the main idea or thesis of the text that you are analyzing. In other words, once you have established what the text’s thesis is and how it communicates that thesis, you will then need to add your own voice, ideas and opinions to the mix. Think of it as joining a conversation. Do you think the author of the original text is mistaken? Has he/she failed to consider some important point? Or do you agree with the author? Perhaps you can provide additional reasons, examples and evidence to support the thesis. Sometimes you can both agree and disagree with the author, but if you do so, be sure to clearly identify which portions you agree with and which you disagree with.
An outline of your essay might look like this:
Identify the text, the author and the subject matter. Make sure your reader knows what you will be talking about in your analysis.
Analyze the rhetorical situation (audience, purpose, context, visual or spatial elements, auditory elements, etc.) Explain how these elements, along with the author’s use of logos, pathos, and ethos are used to persuade or convince the audience and evaluate the effectiveness of these elements. This section might be several paragraphs long.
Respond to the author’s thesis by agreeing/disagreeing. Add your own ideas opinions and examples.
Wrap up the essay by restating your conclusions and position on the topic.
