Rhetorical Analysis Pre-Writing Journal
So, the same pdf attached is used to answer the question.
After actively reading and annotating the essay you have chosen for your rhetorical analysis, you need to spend some time determining what you believe to be the rhetorical situation of that text.
Watch the following video from the University of Maryland Baltimore County’s Writing Center: The Rhetorical SituationLinks to an external site.
Consider carefully the following questions and type your thoughtful and complete answers into a word document that will be uploaded to Canvas. Some of the answers may likely take a paragraph to explain. It will be graded based mostly on content but please be mindful of using basically correct sentences and grammar.
All of your answers will be based on your assessment of the text you have chosen to analyze for your rhetorical analysis essay.
1. Stated Purpose: This is the purpose according to the text itself. (For example, Stephen Colberts stated purpose is to deliver serious news; we find humor in it because we know his actual purpose is to ridicule events and people in the news.) Do you find a statement of purpose anywhere? If so, quote it exactly. If not, indicate that.
2. Actual purpose: This is the purpose or purposes you believe the author had in mind when he/she created the text. This is your interpretation of the writer’s focus. Keep in mind texts can have more than one purpose. Describe the purpose or purposes you find evident in the text and what elements gave you that indication.
3. Audience: Describe what you can infer about the author’s audience. Is an audience stated anywhere? Whom do you believe to be the intended audience for this essay? Describe the demographics of the intended audience in terms of any of the characteristics that may apply: age, gender, location, ethnicity, education level, background/experience, political views, religious beliefs. On what are you basing those assumptions?
4. Relationship to Audience: How does the author attempt to connect with that audience? Does the author believe him or herself to be part of the same “group” as the audience? Or different from? How do you know?
5.Stance: What attitude does that author have toward his or her topic? Is the author objective? Critical? Opinionated? Passionate? Concerned? Does he or she have a clear position? Or merely exploring a topic? Tone is often a strong indicator of stance. Describe the author’s stance and what clues you used to determine it.
