Assignment 2: Rhetorical Analysis
A rhetorical analysis examines and explains how an author (or artist) responds to a specific call to write. That is, rhetorical analyses use specific evidence from a written, verbal, or visual text (such as a letter, speech, advertisement, video, painting, billboard, etc.) to establish a generalization (thesis) about the text's rhetoric (in short, how it persuades, educates, or moves its audience by employing rhetorical appeals, using good reasons, responding to the situation at hand, etc.).
As you plan and draft your analysis, consider your classmates as your audience: a group of people who are also learning how to conduct rhetorical analysis. Your goal will be to help them better understand and appreciate the text you have chosen by demonstrating how it responds to a particular call to write.
What Text Should I Choose for Analysis?
Please see the lesson 4 commentary for guidance in choosing a text. Once you choose a text, you will need to obtain instructor approval. This approval will help ensure that you have chosen a text that will lend itself to the type of analysis this assignment requires.
What Should My Analysis Include?
Your analysis should explain how a text works rhetorically for a specific purpose and as part of a rhetorical situation.
As you begin your analysis, you will want to ask yourself questions such as the following:
• Who is the intended audience for this text?
• What is the context from which this text emerges? What specific problem, issue, or need does it address?
• What is the text's major claim or goal?
• What parts of the text indicate, or offer evidence for, that claim or goal?
• What genre has the writer chosen and why does that genre seem to be a fitting or poor choice?
• What appeals (ethos, pathos, and logos) does the author use?
• What parts of the text indicate, or offer evidence for, the use of these appeals?
If you are analyzing a visual text, also consider the following:
• where you look first (and why)
• how the visual text makes its point or claim
• what details are in the foreground and the background (and why)
How Should I Arrange My Analysis?
Page 53 of the textbook provides one strategy for organizing the sections of your analysis. This list is helpful, but resist the urge to use this strategy as a simple template (creating a paragraph for each section). Instead, focus on developing your essay into three general sections:
• A beginning: this section will probably include an introduction/overview, some background information about the text, and enough of a description to orient your reader to the text you are analyzing and make a claim about the purpose or aim of the text.
• A middle: (the heart of your analysis where you make observations about the text and explain how these observations shed light on the text's response to the rhetorical situation.
• An ending: this section is where you conclude your analysis, perhaps making a judgment about the text's rhetorical effectiveness.
Chapter 4 in the textbook and Lesson 5 in the course commentary will provide you with additional guidance in arranging your essay. Please note: throughout the body of your essay, you should use specific examples from your chosen text to support your claims.
1. Your rhetorical analysis should analyze a text, not simply describe it. In other words, the analysis should shed light on the text by using the rhetorical concepts introduced in this unit.
3. The analysis should use specific examples from the chosen text to support the observations and claims that you make in your essay. It should demonstrate attention to detail and depth of thought.
5. Your essay should have a beginning, a middle, and an ending. These portions of the essay should fulfill the needs and anticipations of readers and enhance the meaning of your essay.
7. Your essay should have a title—strive for one that is meaningful and/or creative.
9. The final length of this assignment is 3—4 pages (950—1,300 words). Your final submission should be word-processed, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins on all sides. Please use 12-point, Times New Roman font.
1. Developing your rhetorical analysis.
What are your plans for revising or developing your essay’s rhetorical analysis? How has your peer feedback shaped this revision plan?
2. Examining paragraph organization.
Examine the body paragraphs of your draft. Identify the main topics of the paragraphs by highlighting them. If the paragraph has more than one main point, or if you notice that a paragraph shifts to a new topic halfway through, that is a sign that you should start a new paragraph with a new topic sentence. Revise your draft to improve paragraphs accordingly.
3. Mapping your topic sentences.
At the end of your essay draft, retype each of the topic sentences from your body paragraphs. Each topic sentence should answer the question "What is the main point of this paragraph?" Review your topic sentences to be sure they do not simply state a topic but actually tell readers what point you are making about that topic. Revise your topic sentences accordingly.
4. Sentence-level editing for precision and variety.
On pages 596-600 of your textbook, Trimbur explains how to edit for clarity and variation. In the space below, paste one paragraph of your rough draft. Paste a second version of that same paragraph and edit it for greater precision, less vagueness, and sufficient variety.
Which sentence-level revision strategy will you primarily focus on as you edit your full draft?
PLEASE ONLY SERIOUS PEOPLE! THANK YOU! ONLY ORIGINAL!
