While creating my rhetorical analysis paper I used all of my typical writing processes. I began this assignment by selecting a commercial that I thought would be the most appealing in the superbowl. After selecting my commercial I did some research at the library using EBSCOhost. I then created an outline on what my paper would be about and pieced all of its parts together. In the future I will try to recieve help earlier on because at first I struggled to understand what the purpose of the paper was. Eventually I was able to figure it out on my own with research and through asking peers, but it would've been a lot easier to just ask for an advisors or instructors help. The last peer review assignment completed was significantly more successful …show more content…
Pathos and Use of Satire I think I did a somewhat effective job when explaining the effective use of satire and humor. Within the paper I provided multiple examples and what it means to the audience. Ethos and Use of Celebrity When using the use of a celebrity I think I did a nice job explaining my points, but I don't know if I used enough effective evidence or cited references to make my information scholarly credible. I used a lot of knowledge I was familiar with and stated my opinions of the star David Harbour. Ethos and Use of Big Name Brand Credibility It was hard to show some of Tides credibility, so I did it through ways by showing how long they have been in business and talking all about their completed charity …show more content…
No one would think to do a rhetorical analysis on such a humorous popular super bowl commercial. I discussed the author by giving a breakdown on the company and providing statements of how long they've been around and how they have continuously been one of the most popular laundry detergent brands. When talking about the audience I provided some insight in who the primary audience is and how tide switched up from making generally feminine aimed ads. Finally within the text I broke down the main components of Ethos and Pathos in the paper and how it strengthened the ad. At first it took me awhile to understand what to write the paper on, but while watching the Super Bowl I had the idea to select an advertisement from there. The most challenging aspect of this paper is I still don't really understand what the purpose and use of writing such a paper is. I know how to break it down into specific appeals such as ethos and logos, but I struggled in using this to create an effective argument. Because of this I feel as though I created to many blunt statements proving little to no evidence to support any of my

The Many Powers Of Rhetoric In this section of “The UNF Guide To Writing” different authors discuss the robust powers of rhetorical writing. Nathan Thornburgh discussed “overheated rhetoric” in his writing Violent Rhetoric and Arizona Politics (52). He discussed the shooting that took place in Arizona over a political issue of immigration in which Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was killed. Thornburgh said that the over-exaggeration n that was places on the “issues” that were going on in Arizona is the reason people got angry enough and why it drove Jared Loughner, the shooter, to act out in a violent way (53).
During the 1980s, space exploration was a popular topic to watch, listen to, and learn about in American life. NASA had already sent a lot of missions to space, all reaching new milestones and increasing interest in space exploration. The Challenger, however, had a different mission than the rest. It was going to carry the first teacher, Christa McAuliffe, into space where she would teach two lessons. There were six other men and women on board the Challenger.
Millions of people get together and have parties, gather around the television and see who is going to win the title. During halftime many commercials are played, many of them are hilarious and people talk about them for the next week. One commercial stood out to me in particular. In this paper, I will analyze a Budweiser commercial from a Super Bowl rhetorically. I will show how the authors use ethos, logos, and pathos to get a point across.
Family, friends, and possessions pressure individuals through the imposition of values that contribute to identity; we are told that we obtain our qualities simply by inheritance and association. The environment one chooses to surround themselves reflects similar learned behaviors and thought processes. Deviating from the norm is often contemptible, but natural, according to author Jon Krakauer. Realizing that he did not want to become a carbon copy of his parents and environment, Christopher McCandless wandered the American West for two years, as a nomad, to reject society as he knows it―his family, friends, and possessions. He burns his money, abandons his car, and cuts all ties with his family on an identity crisis that would lead to his death in the inhospitable Alaskan tundra.

The open question presented to the client was “how do you feel about that? The client expressed his desire to make a change, but wasn’t sure of his wife reaction.
As our final assignment for cornerstone we were tasked with revising our rhetorical analysis. I received a B, 81%, and by the end of my revisions have “A” quality work. During recent assignments and papers for other classes I realized the thesis was one of the first few sentences in the paper. As I was reading my paper I noticed that the purpose of the author writing this wasn 't until almost halfway into the first paragraph.

My perspective on life can be illustrated by the positions I played in soccer growing up - striker and goalie. As a striker, I lead the way and scored the goals. As a goalie, I kept the team in check and made the saves. I did both those things on the field, I strive to embody them off of it. by debating the effectiveness of flamethrowers in a Zombie apocalypse.
In the essay, Mark Twain is saying that humans are the lowest of animals. Instead of evolving from lower species, human have descended from higher ones. “In order to determine the difference between an anaconda and an earl (if any) I caused seven young calves to be turned into the anaconda’s cage.

English 1010 was an amazing class, during the period that the class was going on I was able to develop my communication skills and become aware of the world around me and how individuals operate according to what the society wants from them.

We had a discussion on rhetorical analysis where we analyze the rhetorical strategy used, I
Kathryn Stockett, the author of The Help uses imagery to help the reader better comprehend the meaning of the passage. As the reader reads along in the passage reading about little Miss Skeeter, “Munching on peanuts, sorting through the pieces spread out on the table, a storm [raging] outside (Stockett 77). Through this imagery that the author provides the reader is instantly transformed into the world of little Miss Skeeter as she is sitting down by Constantine on a dark stormy night doing a puzzle.
