Professor ProsnakPaper One Rhetorical Analysis It is important for students in a writing course to understand the way that an argument is organized. In your first paper, you will be breaking down an authors argument in order to see how and why they created their work. Doing so will allow you to understand dhow other writers create written works, and should allow you to have a stronger understanding of how to use such techniques in your own writing. For this essay, you will write a four to five-page rhetorical analysis argument detailing your perception of a writers rhetorical situation, means of persuasion, and rhetorical strategies in order to explain to the reader why they are important in terms of the success of that particular speech/letter/essay etc. Your audience for this paper is the general public, who may not have a strong understanding of the way that rhetorical devices function and why they are important tools for writers to use. Ultimately, you should strive to analyze, examine, and synthesize your chosen topic in order to further strengthen your own understanding of how to use these strategies successfully.Your essay should offer an analysis of the work that you choose and show the rhetorical situation, the writers means of persuasion, and the rhetorical strategies. You will be required to support your argument using one to two primary or secondary outside source(s) that will allow you to understand the context of the rhetorical situation. To do so, you must use sources that are reliable.You should stick to sources from reputable national newspapers and newsmagazines, government websites (.gov), or educational websites (.edu). You will lose points if you use inappropriate or unreliable sources. See me if you need help determining what is or isnt an appropriate source. Any sources used must be cited using either MLA or APA format. You can find citation and formatting guidelines in your Little Seagull Handbook. Here are some questions to consider as you brainstorm: How do writers use rhetorical strategies in their writing? How can I write in a way that will allow me to be informative to an audience that may be unfamiliar with this material? What topic will allow me to personally connect to the rhetorical situation and possibly apply the rhetorical strategies to my own writing?Additional guidelines include the following: Thesis statements/claims are required for this paper and should be underlined. Follow MLA or APA guidelines carefully when formatting your paper and citing sources. Proofread carefully for spelling, punctuation, and mechanical errors. Your papers should be free of these. Also, write in a CLEAR and PROFESSIONAL tone . Avoid using first or second person (I and you). Be sure to include an annotated bibliography of the sources you use.
