Project #62620 - analysis of an article about marijuana in the US

 

Your purpose is to analyze how well a text about marijuana in the U.S. functions rhetorically. . Your audience is comprised of adults who have not read your article, so you will need to summarize it for them. Remember a text’s rhetorical effectiveness may depend on multiple, interdependent rhe-torical elements, so you will have to choose a few on which to focus your paper. You might focus on how the text appeals to readers’ values, beliefs, or emotions (pathos); or you might focus on how the text establishes (or fails to establish) the author’s credibility (ethos); or you might focus on how it uses logic and evidence—how it appeals to log-os.  

In analyzing how well this article functions rhetorically, you are preparing to work on your next project: an argument about marijuana in the U.S.. For that argument, you will use sources such as the one you analyze for this project.

When I read your essay, I will look for how effectively you achieve your purpose by do-ing the following:

1.Beginning in a way that 

•engages readers’ interest.

•presents your analytical thesis about the text.

2. Providing background your readers need by adequately summarizing the text for them in one paragraph.

3. Analyzing how the text appeals to logos, ethos, and pathos by writing coherent, focused analytical paragraphs that

•make one clear analytical point about the effectiveness of the article in a topic sentence.

•support that point with apt evidence from the text.

•explain how that evidence supports the paragraph’s analytical point.

4. Conclude your essay by summarizing your main points in an insightful way.

5. Write sentences that are clear and grammatical.

 

Also, I summarize your article in one paragraph. In another paragraph, describe the rhetorical factors that shape it.
