comparative rhetorical analysis 3
there are two assignments.
1st assignment: “Critical Response #2”
Now that you have read the Guidelines for Essay #1, please choose which two articles you will write about–either the two journal articles OR the two newspaper/magazine articles. Also, be sure you have reviewed the “Ten Common Fallacies” and “Rhetorical Analysis Packet” handouts before completing this worksheet. You can download this chart and save it to your home computer, your Google Drive, or a flash drive. Just be sure that you are not submitting a blank chart and that you save your work. Your score for this assignment will be credit/no-credit based on percentage of completion. For each blank in the chart, try to include examples with page numbers from the articles. This exercise will directly prepare you to write Essay #1, so the more effort you put into it, the easier that writing process will be.
2nd assignment: “Comparative Rhetorical Analysis”
Please submit a doc, docx, or pdf version of your rough draft here. Use the following highlighting pattern in Microsoft Word or Google Docs, and be sure to use lighter versions of these colors so that I can read your draft. While the final draft must be 1,500-2,000 words, you should aim for a minimum of 1,000 words for this rough draft. Please note that this draft will be graded credit/no-credit and awarded 1 point per 100 words, up to 10 points. Once I have read your draft, I will provide feedback for you (in person, by telephone, via Zoom, or in Canvas, depending on what you choose). More information about that is located in 2.11 Schedule Conference with Instructor. Please indicate in the Submission Comment when you submit your paper, which type of feedback you prefer, and if you did decide to make an appointment with me via the Canvas Scheduler, indicate which day/time we are meeting. If you do not want to schedule an appointment with me, just write “Written Feedback” in the Submission Comments.
