I’ve familiarized myself with my writing style, strengths and weaknesses through the various practice essays and in class assignments. I specifically remember the last Rhetorical analysis essay as a break out essay. The article was taken from the onion (a satirical publication) and detailed a new product called “MagnaSoles”, shoe implants which were supported by “science” to relieve a host of maladies. In my first rhetorical analysis, I struggled with identifying rhetorical strategies, using RIP words, and connecting the strategies to the author’s purpose. However, by following the template given the day before the essay (one of the most helpful tools I’ve received in regards to rhetorical analysis), I eliminated RIP words, identified correct examples of satire in the article, and did well connecting to the purpose.

Toulmin’s model of argumentation breaks down an argument into six parts, the claim, data, warrant, backing, qualifier and rebuttal. The claim is the thesis of an argument and the data is what evidence is used to support the claim. The warrant is usually not as clear, it is the information that connects the data to the claim. Backing is similar to the data, but it is what influences the speaker to argue their specific claim and the qualifier reveals how strongly the speaker feels about the topic. Finally, the rebuttal is where a potential opposing view is included in the argument and denounced to help strengthen the claim.
I learned about parallelism, run-on, comma splices and sentences. I also learned about the end punctuation, the comma, parentheses and quotation marks. I am able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of plagiarism by correctly summarizing, quoting, paraphrasing, citing, and acknowledging the sources through MLA/APA documentation. I was able to organize my thoughts effectively, and pose thoughtful arguments and effectively support my argument with a strong introduction and well-rounded
Adding the title to six parts of Toulmin Method analysis into each of the paragraphs and showing the rhetorical triangle in the essay format in the essay is the main change of this essay.

I thought this essay was going to be one of the hardest essays I would have to write in this class because I ever really understood the rhetorical analysis triangle. I always had trouble figuring out the difference between logos, ethos, and pathos. In high school, my teacher made the rhetorical analysis triangle really difficult to understand so when I had to start writing this essay I was really nervous that I would have trouble using the rhetorical analysis triangle. Throughout this essay, I had to put in a lot of research in each part of the triangle so I was able to understand the triangle and be able to write a good essay. While I was writing this essay I learned how important it was to incorporate the rhetorical analysis triangle into my essays
Finally, identify, if any, flaws that Collin’s book may have (incomplete arguments, outdate concepts, oversimplifications or not applicable extensions).

The author allows himself to use the emotionally-painted words and phrases. For example, the phrases like “proper English” or “low people” are the reflection of the author's attitude to the issue discussed in the article. However, the prevalence of the author's personal opinion and overemphasis of the author's idea might be seen as a weakness of the writing as far as the readers might not find out on what the writer bases his claims. Thus, the audience might consider the support provided by the author not sufficient for the persuasion. Besides, Oliver Kamm strongly refers in the article to the ethical side of the problem of grammar pedantry, which might not be supported by his opponents.
