Analyzing Arguments--Rhetorical Analysis (Robbie Pock, Portland Community College
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Rhetorical analysis is a tool for deeper critical reading. When you analyze a text rhetorically, you consider the overall situation and context of the writing and how the needs and constraints of the writing situation may have guided the author’s choices. Rhetorical analysis helps us look at the text itself but also outside the text at other aspects of the writing situation—context, author, audience, genre—that influenced the way this particular text was written.

This unit contains two lessons and two activities.

Finding and selecting OER to adopt at your college can raise questions about both the quality and accessibility of the content for your students.
