This structure is important because Lincoln starts off with the facts and then discusses the topic if he were to do it any other way the audience would be left confused and wouldn’t understand his overall purpose toward the fight. Another example of syntax would be the last paragraph, which is one long sentence. This last statement is put in one sentence to show the passion in Lincoln, but also the hope he has for America in its healing process. This statement can’t be split, it must stand together or it will lose its value. The togetherness of the structure then gives the audience a lasting and energized effect.
Rhetorical devices in writing often can make or break an author’s work. In Barbara Jordan’s autobiography Becoming Educated she uses a wide selection of strong rhetorical strategies that further prove her point, but two in particular reinforce the story. The perspective she gives to her story and her experience draw the reader in and make the work seem more personal. At the same time that her work reads as a casual conversation, her professional diction strengthens her character. Obviously, an autobiography will use perspective in the text.
Rhetorical strategies are a variety of parts that make up an essay. The strategies include everything from explaining a process, to structure of writing. Whether the author 's purpose is to entertain, inform, or persuade, ultimately these strategies will strengthen not only the author’s purpose, but also the writing itsef. Typically when authors use these strategies, they are very precise to how they use them, and when deeply analysing a piece of writing, this is very clear. In Bell Hooks’ “Understanding Patriarchy”, she used rhetorical strategies to convey her purpose.

My opinion or what I think about James Brook’s title in his essay “People Like Us” is a good and understandable title for his essay. He puts People Like Us as his title which makes you think a lot about why he chooses that title. It matches really well with the essay because in his essay he explained that America is diverse as a whole, but as individuals we are not. We are diverse in many ways like culture and ethnicity, but when it comes down to individuals were not. James Brooks argued that when it comes down to neighborhood, community, and country we show little sign of diversity.
Overall Ponnuru supports his opinion by using facts; however the article has a strong conservative bias, and should be interpreted as such. Zakaria organized his argument in a way that captured the reader’s attention, starting with statistics that do not favor the United States. He proceeds to pick apart this data and refute the idea that America is not advancing the way other countries are, but rather are advancing in its own ways. Each author had convincing and valid arguments for their points about the role of America in the world and what is to come, but it is important to take into consideration ones’ own knowledge about this issue and how each article supports and opposes the
American literature is chocked full of values about the idea of individualism, where a person has the capacity to retain self identity, the notion that we are made up of many migrants, and messages that have a vocal outcry that equality isn’t always present in our country. Sandra Cisneros draw numerous values from American literature when growing up and, contains values that we learned in class. Classification of her work could possibly align under more traditional works, as she doesn’t break the mold against society normals with that of a modernist to postmodernist view. Perhaps a realist label classification would be appropriate. Formerly, In “Straw into Gold” the themes that were present was the discomfort of her fellow “Latino Host” expecting her to make tortillas from scratch.
The need to conform is a vital part in an individual 's behavior. The communities in which surround everyone’s lives has a funny way of making individuals give up crucial parts of themselves to “fit in with the crowd.” Funny in Farsi is a memoir written by Firoozeh Dumas in which she talks about the experiences and challenges she faced as an Iranian American. Dumas, the author of Funny in Farsi, states that in order to fully assimilate into an unfamiliar community, sometimes one may have to give up parts of their own identity to fully achieve full integration into their newfound community. Firoozeh emigrated to America with many cultural difficulties, but one of the most inconvenient (according to Dumas) was her name. Her mother gave her the name and in Persian it means “Turquoise” , but in America Firoozeh means “Unpronounceable” (63).
Elie Wiesel’s Night should not be banned from the book list for ninth grade because it is a book that teaches very important lessons despite the fact that it contains violent scenes. The book shows that we should treat people in a good way even if they are not like us.

On one side [there is] warmth and companionship and sweet understanding.and on the other - cold, lonely greatness” (265). Faithful Americans will persevere and pick the right and good side. There is no true American who wants to be evil. For some “underneath their top most layers of frailty [they] want to be good” (414). Those who want to be good have the ability to capture the American spirit.
Lincoln 's main rhetorical appeal was the use of emotional language in using word such as dearm , best , last , and hope. Using these words to show how american needs to get back to it roots of why it was formed. To be a safe haven for people who are being persecuted not to persecute people because their look or act different from us. This also appeals you your ethos because irtt saying America’s not where it should be how can you help get it their. I agree at with this quote that at that point in time , but that were better now.

This presidential election has so far been dictated by this issue and it is a very prominent one in today’s society. Two of the biggest candidates have very opposing viewpoints.

She also wants to conduct humane enforcement because these immigrants are also people and should not be treated as anything less, supports naturalization of immigrants, and wants to take in and help refugees.
The use of the conversational element strengthens her argument that dwelling on the past can affect someone’s way of moving forward. People interact with other people through conversations so that they can get to know one another, and have the opportunity to hear what’s on the person’s mind. In literature, the use of conversation assists the writer in making the essay interesting. Catalano has internal conflicts within herself, and that’s causing her to have doubts in her current relationship.
