The first section of your syllabus entitled “What We’re Doing in This Course, and Why” intrigued me. Specifically, due to its mention of the concept of rhetorical thinking being used to figure out what to say and how to say it. To me, this section encompasses all disciplines who tend to use different words to describe how you present an argument both in a correct and incorrect manner (framing, bias, logical fallacies ect.). I’m interested to see how different disciplines utilize this skill from simply being as bland and logical as possible such as in a scientific paper, or to making an effort to persuade an audience in a speech such as in a debate. As in any class worth taking I expect there to be challenges when dealing with the course material

In Project #1, I chose to make a rhetorical analysis of a chapter from Jason Fagone 's book Ingenious: A True Story Of Invention, Automotive Daring, And The Race To Revive America, "How to spend your entire income building a car to travel 100 miles on a gallon of gas. " The first chapter mainly focuses on two main characters: Kevin and Jen. Mr. Fagone introduces us to them by telling us how they both met, grew up, where they went to school and what for, where they worked, and how they started working together on building the car for X Prize.

Politicians call for missile defense projects. Many defense projects have failed and cost not only the government but taxpayers over 50 billion dollars. Lee Fang, a writer for The Intercept, shows how ineffective these programs have been in the past. The persuasiveness of Lee's argument in his article “Politicians Use North Korea H-Bomb Fears to Pitch Wasteful Missile Defense Projects” is based on a logical approach using facts, (logos), an emotion approach trying to rally us up (pathos), and on his credibility and the creditability of his sources (ethos). Lee's appeal to our logical (logos) side is based on facts.
"Common Sense" was one of the most important pieces of literature in early America, because it was extremely influential to many people throughout all of American colonies. The colonist came to America to escape religious boundaries. They wanted to be able to worship God freely. Thomas Paine uses this to his advantage by using scriptural quotes, pathos, to convince his audience that it is common sense for the colonists to break completely with Great Britain. He says that "a monarchy is terrible, and to have a king is not only an unsuccessful way to rule a nation, but it is also a sin."

In their article, Landgrave and Nowrasteh (2017) employ the use of credibility of the speaker.
Rhetorical Analysis Writers as well as other artists inform, entertain, and persuade their audiences in many ways. Therefore, for a clear understanding of some pieces of work, one need to analyze the work, whether fiction or non-fiction to understand how different parts and elements work together in creating the needed effect. Use of literary elements such as ethos, pathos, logos, tone, and imagery are some of the techniques that bring out the intended purpose of the piece of work. The rhetorical situation is another essential area in rhetorical analysis. “Americans Don 't Have the Right to Bear Just Any Arms” by Kurt Lichtenwald shows how he relates to the audience in a manner that one can recognize and analyze.

The United States is made up of some of the most diverse and interesting cultures in the world. Jamila Lyiscott proves this by showing her different dialects and how they are all equally important. Lyiscott believes that the way she speaks towards her parents, towards her friends, and towards her colleagues are all one in the same. Throughout the entirety of her speech, Lyiscott changes up her vocal patterns and dialects so that the audience can understand first hand what each of these dialects are. When she talks about her father, Lyiscott uses her native tongue, when she talks to her fellow neighbors and close friends she switches it up to a more urbanized dialect, and when she is in school she masks the other two dialects with a professional sounding language.

In some instances where Stockett uses ethos, pathos is also included in her writing.
