According to Ellis (2003), this classification is more centered around and allows for the theories of rhetoric that are influential in differentiating different discourse categories in terms of their structure and linguistic properties including narrative, instructions, description, reports, etc. These features often employ a linguistic (often functional) syllabus and appear to entail tasks creating chances and capacity for the free production of language that has been previously presented and practiced. As Ellis (2003) revealed, tasks of this category foster ‘task-supported’ teaching. Further, Ellis highlighted that influencing both the negotiation of meaning and the quality of learner production is one merit of applying a rhetorical classification,
Rhetorical Analysis of “The Jian Ghomeshi effect: I plan to speak now” In the article “The Jian Ghomeshi effect: I plan to speak now”, Camilla Gibb’s describes the significance fear from repercussions have on altering our decisions. Gibb’s also allows the reader to consider how a bystanders intervening can change the outcome a victim may face.

Blink written by Malcom is an argumentative based research book about how our adaptive subconscious plays a huge part in every day life. It also tells of the pros and cons of our adaptive subconscious. In Gladwell’s Blink he used different forms of rhetoric to persuade us, the readers, of his point successfully. Gladwell uses multiple counts ethos and logos in his writing to get his point across along with pathos, analogies, rhetorical questions, and irony. He also uses his tone and diction to assist his writing.
He has adjusted the original theory so much by incorporating the ideas of basic needs, quality world and creativity amongst others. Choice Theory explains in precise detail how we make our choices as we attempt to balance our needs and has a very broad area of possible applications. By using Choice Theory, we help people learn that what we do is not determined by external causes, but by what goes on inside of us. Since all that is taught by the William Glasser Institute (counseling, education and managing) is based upon this theory, teaching Choice Theory in great detail is an integral part of all programs offered or approved by the
- Literature is a part of our history, a glimpse of modern society, allows us to interpret our emotions, enrich our experience and help us discover and gather information. Literature is something that needs to be studied and understood, it is one way for us to know the lifestyle, culture and beliefs of specific people, it also allows us to express ourselves, unleash our imagination and fully understand the world around you, but also the past, and possibly the future one should study literature. - Literature is a part of our history, a glimpse of modern society, allows us to interpret our emotions, enrich our experience and help us discover and gather information.

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.
Planning can help you to formulate ideas and to ensure that the structure of your final essay is logical and appropriate to the essay title. There is many different way of planning that I use such as drawing pictures, making lists, brainstorming, using graphic organizers. Planning is important because it make the writing easier when I plan what I’m going to talk about. Also in the article by Berkenkotter which she did study and experiment on Donald M. Murray to see how perfitonal academics and she found that planning is important process in Murray writing Strategy. “Some of the more provocative findings of this study concern the sub-processes of planning and revising that have not been observed in conventional protocols”.
Members in society constantly use their imagination so it is of utmost importance to educate your imagination so you may express yourself, use your imagination to create your own ideas, and finally to appreciate the study of literature. Frye explains that the first level of language, the language of consciences or awareness is our
The Most Sympathetic Character The power of language is used to persuade the audience with facts to back up their opinion towards something. Persuasion empowers an individual to influence others by going out to others and sharing their own experiences and sharing their own opinions but also making sure that they have evidence to back up what they are saying about something. Everyone can easily be persuaded into getting something or thinking something in a different way and that is why the power of language is so important centuries ago and now. Everyone should learn how to differentiate bias information about something or someone in order to be well informed and well educated about something in order to inform others. Mark Antony is the most sympathetic character in Julius Caesar because he cares deeply about Julius Caesar and he expresses how Caesar was a good person and not ambitious proving how supportive he was.
It reads “ Asking what the discourse is about, then, involves identifying the subject matter or topic at the most obvious level, but also determining issues that underlie it and the states that should be addressed- in short, asking what questions need to be resolved by this discourse?” This ties back to my classroom due to the fact that Professor Clark-Oates speaks a lot about discourse and always reminds us to ask questions in our writing that our audience may have and respond to those questions. Types of rhetorical questions in writing make a big impact especially because someone with no knowledge may be the audience and our writing should be able to make sense to anyone who is reading. At times, I feel as if I forget that because when I’m writing I feel as if my audience already has some type of background knowledge but in most cases, that is not the case. Something important I caught was that “ Rhetors may speak in some professional capacity, a volunteer role, as a parent, or in some other role that may be less readily identifiable.” When we think of “ Rhetors” we think of professionals, we think of someone with a masters degree in writing, but it’s not always the case and that's important to keep in mind because it may always
For example, we must understand the author’s argument and the one they are responding to. Not only does this grasp different views of the argument, but it also helps comprehend what we are reading. Understanding different perspectives helps us engage and challenge our thoughts to new ideas.
