Rose realized that the capability of of one's job performance should be based on one's level of education but the individual ability to handle everyday situations. Rose uses rhetorical tool ethos in his essay. He uses his mother's personal story of accomplishments to connect with readers. He also includes examples and reasonings to back up his claim. Mike Rose’s essay provides enough literary background to prove his claim and allow the audience to believe “Blue Collar Brilliance” is the more effective essay.
(Page 211, Figure one). The authors’ emphasis on “on average” is very effective at showing how their point makes sense and why it should be taken into consideration. I found the way that the authors focused on the minority more than the majority was skillfully effective at showing how some career paths do not require a college education and that the return in investment would not be worth the cost. Throughout their argument I found the writers to mostly use Logos and Ethos in their writing. The Logos is evident by the way they use statistics and the Ethos by how they state telling someone the only way to be successful is to go to college is a disservice.

While her writing is more sophisticated and it delves deeper into the emotions of The Book Thief; the tools she uses are too clouded by her complex sentences for them to be successful. The very first line Chhabra’s review is a rhetorical question aimed at the audience which sets the stage for the rest of the review (Appendix B). A skillful and attention grabbing start, it is then buried under a thirty-eight word sentence. The first stylistic decision to include the rhetorical question was a smart one but after which she undermines. Chhabra also utilizes parenthesis throughout her review to insert more information into her sentences.
She wants to be a wise young lady, which the author doesn’t come right out and say it, but he implies that those are her goals. Once again if you read the whole book, you learn that Mary actually achieves her goal and turns out to be a wonderful person who figures out what life is through traveling. Another example would be aquote such as “ Sometimes you walk into a room one person, and when you come out the other side, you’re someone else altogether.” I believe this uncovers or foreshadows that she will change throughout the
As a columnist for the Washington Post, Esther J. Cepeda writes on a wide variety of topics, yet she consistently uses certain strategies to persuade her readers. Whether she is writing about heritage months or Lady Doritos, Cepeda employs several rhetorical techniques that capture her readers' attention and ensure they listen to her message. A few of the more notable strategies Cepeda applies include problem-solution organization, supporting research, personal anecdotes, and reasonable counterarguments.

This problem-solution organizational strategy allows Cepeda to detail the underlying severity of a problem

According to The Longman Reader Ethos “Refers to a writer’s reliability or credibility” (683). This is needed when trying to persuade your audience, because readers will agree with your point of view if they think that you have some sort of credentials on the matter or
By making it more personal it allows the reader to connect to the author because she seem like a normal person you might run into on the street rather than an isolated scholar. She also mentions that she is a writer and an english major which gives her credibility by implying that she has
The author uses ethos in the beginning of her book to set up the whole novel. She shows her credibility to invite readers to believe what she tells them is the truth. The use of emotional stories is very effective towards connecting with audiences. Williams does this to clarify how much these world problems can effect everyday people. The author utilizes logos by extenuating facts over the course of the paper.
Tim LaRocca Persepolis KPA In the book “Persepolis”, the author Marjane Satrapi, uses excellent diction to help the reader obtain knowledge and gain understanding of her main purpose in a specific passage or chapter of the book. Despite her specific word choice, it is challenging for readers to truly understand her main purpose only through literary terms and devices used throughout the book. Therefore, to help increase the readers ability to understand the main purpose of a certain specific passage, Satrapi uses an extensive amount of precise graphic elements. For example, in the passage “Kim Wilde”, Satrapi is able to express her main purpose that when governments tend to restrict the people too much, and become oppressive, the people tend to resist their law and rebel against the law by using the graphic elements of shading and facial expressions to express her purposes in and easier and clearer visual way. Throughout Persepolis, we constantly see use of shading.
