Another thing I felt I could get better at would be detailing without flying off topic and losing that main purpose for the audience. The detailing could use some work (like everything else), but it is not too bad, at least to me. I could be more specific in certain cases such as, “To me, my older brother was my biggest influence when it came to my reading and writing.” (Sheffield, Eric Major Assignment #1, 2017) where I could have elaborated more, or just used a better sentence in general. But in that first paragraph, what I attempted to get across to my readers was, how important that memory was to me and how it impacted my literacy. Then I explained that memory along with some background information to help the audience understand it a little more.

Modified Rhetorical Précis of Thomas Paine’s Common Sense Thomas Paine, a British-American political writer, intellectual, and strong advocate of the American Revolution, published several compelling pamphlets in the mid-late 18th century inspiring colonists to rebel against the British government. One of his most influential works, Common Sense (1776), would eventually become the most widely-read political non-fiction of its time. Samuel Adams would later declare that “without the pen of [Thomas Paine], the sword of Washington would be raised in vain.” In Common Sense, Paine powerfully argues that colonists must declare independence from Britain in order to establish a representative democracy founded upon their religious and political beliefs.
