But more importantly, when doing this kind of analysis, you have to ask yourself and answer two questions. What does this text say and how does the text say it?
The Principles of Critical Literacy was developed in 2004, by McLaughlin and DeVoogd. It includes various means of understanding the relationship between the reader and the author. It is made by Freire 's suggestion that reading is intertwined with knowledge. Critical literacy is deeper than just decoding words, it is about connecting knowledge.

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.

Tea Cake didn’t stop there, he even taught Janie how to shoot a gun just so Janie could go hunting with him, and so they could spend more time together.

Grant-Davie describes thoroughly the term rhetorical situation and how the development of the definition and its constituents has contributed to the discovery of the motives and responses behind any discourse. The analysis of rhetorical situations could determine the outer or inner influences of the rhetors, the audience, and their particular constraints. Grant Davie supports his claims by using the earlier definitions of scholars and teachers as his foundation. He also addresses his own analysis drawn by life experienced discourses which it also helps the reader understand the causes of rhetorical situations. This is important because it teaches any writer or reader to analyze a situation and think about the options and paths it could lead

Project One For this assignment, I had to choose a scholarly or academic text from my own discipline and write an essay in which I analyze how well such text meets the needs of the rhetorical situation.

This can be seen because Janet does not focus on the whole story revolving both characters, only their background.
