Topic: Rhetorical Analysis
Perform a rhetorical analysis on sentences from two cultural
contexts of your choice. One of the cultural contexts must be your own. You need to
choose two complete sentences from outside sources (one sentence from each source).
If you choose a sentence from a speech, the speech cannot be more than 10 years old.
Your rhetorical analysis should balance description and analysis, including:
• An analysis of the rhetorical situation for each sentence
• An analysis of the rhetorical devices and appeals in each sentence
• An analysis of the style, method, and structure of each sentence
