Proposals, Fallacies, and Rhetorical Analysis

Hi Everyone,

I apologize for not having this posted sooner, but it totally slipped my mind while getting ready for my trip. I trust that everyone consulted the Daily Reading/Assignments section, so you will all be prepared for class this evening. This week we will take a look at fallacies of argument and rhetorical analysis. We will use these skills to critique presidential addresses during class time, but you will use the skills to critique the sources you find for your research topic.

Reading for the week

Tuesday: Everything’s an Argument chapters 5 and 6, ″Inaugural Address” President Kennedy, and “First Inaugural Address” President Obama

Thursday: “Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation” President Roosevelt and ”9/11 Address to the Nation” President GW Bush 

Due this week

Topic Proposals are due by 11:59 pm on Thursday, January 30, 2015. Your proposals must be placed in the Dropbox folder that you shared with me during the first week of class.
