In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character, Jonas, can undoubtedly be considered a hero. Jonas’ actions throughout The Giver are a quality example of the archetypal pattern of the Hero’s journey, and to depict this I used a variety of text, illustration, and color throughout my graphic novel. Jonas undergoes all three stages of the hero’s journey throughout the novel. He experiences the first step in this journey, the call to adventure, when he is selected to be the Receiver of Memory. Jonas, like most archetypal heroes during this step, notes that he believes that his life will change due to this call to a mysterious adventure.

When crafting an argument an author must find a way to appeal to their audience. The three different types of rhetorical appeals are ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos is the appeal to ethics, pathos is the appeal to emotion, and logos is the appeal to logic. By using one, two, or all of these appeals, an author can better convince an audience of his/her claims. In Gary Slutkin’s TED Talk, he used all three rhetorical appeals.

Shall we gather strength… Shall we acquire the means?...”, helping to shove what should be evident, in the viewer's faces.

Atticus from To Kill A Mockingbird and Martin Luther King Jr. both make very convincing arguments on the fight for equality between races. The two speeches were very popular in their time, in the 1900´s, and are still widely recognized today. The ¨I Have A Dream¨ speech was televised to nearly everywhere in America, and thousands of people went to the capitol to watch Martin Luther King Jr. speak. The trial closing of To Kill a Mockingbird was written for a small town setting, but the raging popularity of the novel made sure that people all across the USA had taken in and reflected on the moral of the story, especially during the unstable time when segregation was going strong.

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. I have picked a text written by Janet Brennan Croft, which is about characters and how they both evade and embrace faith. The scholarly article is called, Turin and Aragorn: Evading, and embracing fate, and I believe it does a great job at meeting the needs of the rhetorical situation. The audience of this Article is that of students and that of those who wish to understand Tolkien’s characters in more depth. This can be seen because Janet does not focus on the whole story revolving both characters, only their background.
