Last week we talked about both fallacies and rhetorical analysis. As I stated in class, rhetorical analysis is very important and for today’s out of class assignment, you will be completing the task on p. 100 in Everything’s an Argument.
Browse YouTube or another Web site to find an example of a powerful emotional argument that’s made visually, either alone or using words as well. In a paragraph, defend a claim about how the argument works. For example, does an image itself make a claim, or does it draw you in to consider a verbal claim? What emotion does the argument generate? How does that emotion work to persuade you?
In the comments section of this post, add the link to your video and respond to the questions. This assignment is worth 20 points and is due no later than 6:45 pm (the end of our regular class time) on Tuesday, February 3rd.
