Based on the concepts presented in Writing Arguments, you will write a 1000-word

Based on the concepts presented in Writing Arguments, you will write a 1000-word essay that will analyze the rhetorical strategies (ethos, logos, pathos, kairos) used in one of the advertisements posted on Ecampus. This essay will also examine the audience of the advertisement. As an author, you will argue if the rhetorical strategies used in the advertisement are convincing to the intended audience.
1. Introduction with thesis and audience
2. Summary of advertisement, including Kairos
3. Use of logos with specific examples
4. Use of pathos with specific examples
5. Use of ethos with specific examples
6. Conclusion
Consider the following:
 Develop a strong thesis for your paper. In your first paragraph, let your reader know what forms of
rhetoric the advertisement uses. Are these forms of rhetoric effective for the intended audience? Why
or why not?
 Describe your advertisement as though your reader has never seen it. Discuss what text and images appear, what colors are used, etc. (WA Chapter 9).
 Define rhetorical terms (ethos, logos, pathos, Kairos) for your reader. Explain where you received
these definitions. You must refer back to Writing Arguments and/or A Writer’s Reference.
 Your goal is not to evaluate the product, it is to analyze the advertisement.
 Try to limit the use of “I,” “you,” “we,” and “they.” While personal pronouns are useful in some cases, they also tend to limit your audience and make your writing seem less formal. Instead, be more specific in your writing.
 Add a Works Cited page that includes Writing Arguments and your ad. This must be in MLA format.
We will discuss this in class.

Overview The project for this course is the creation of a critical analysis essa

Overview
The project for this course is the creation of a critical analysis essay. Writing is a craft that allows people to express themselves in various ways. The ability to articulate a message through writing is essential in any career. The writing process can be very intimidating; however, the more you work with it, the more comfortable the process becomes.
You developed a thesis about the information presented in the article you selected, and now, you will support that thesis through a critical analysis essay.
Directions
In this project, you will follow the writing process to revise your critical analysis essay draft from previous assignments. Once your thesis is established, you will use evidence from the reading to support it throughout your essay.
There is no right or wrong thesis—it is how you support your thesis that makes your essay effective. To thoroughly revise the work, be sure to refer to your instructor’s feedback. Finally, proofread your final draft and correct any errors you may find. This assignment will be submitted in Brightspace.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Introduction: This paragraph is where readers will have a chance to get an idea of what your essay will be about. Do not give all your information away here. Instead, give readers a sample of what is to come and what points you will be supporting with evidence in the essay’s body.
Provide an overview of the work you have analyzed by briefly describing the main points and your thoughts about the writing.
Compose a thesis that you will support with evidence throughout the essay. This statement will give direction to your essay and should be well thought out.
Body: The body is your opportunity to describe and support your thesis in-depth. Ensure that your thoughts and evidence are clear and organized in a way that is easy for readers to follow and understand.
Be sure to write organized paragraphs that clearly state their main idea and move logically from one to the other.
Your body paragraphs should support your thesis by combining thoughts and ideas with evidence. There is no such thing as a right or wrong evaluation; the key is how well your thesis is supported and the quality of the evidence used.
Conclusion: Think of the conclusion as a review of your analysis. Use this section to restate your thesis and remind readers of your supporting evidence. Think of this paragraph as the last chance to prove your point.
Briefly summarize the main points that helped form your analysis. This section should consist of a brief review of your main ideas.
Draw conclusions based on your evidence.
Use evidence that you have found to wrap up the essay in a meaningful way that relates to your audience.
What to Submit
Your analysis essay must be 3–4 pages (plus a cover page and references) and must be written in MLA or APA format. Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Include at least three references from your selected reading cited in MLA or APA format.

Directions for Paper Option #3 on Analyzing Logos (Logic and Common Fallacies of

Directions for Paper Option #3 on Analyzing Logos (Logic and Common Fallacies of Logic) in Serano (pages 432-435) or Bok (pages 437-438): For this 500-750 word paper, analyze the soundness of the logic in either (or both) Julia Serano, “(Un)safe Spaces: Can We Tolerate Intolerant Speech on Campus?” or Derek Bok, “Protecting Freedom of Expression on the Campus.” With specific focus on the inconsistencies or contradictions in the logic of either Bok or Serano, consider how well Serano’s or Bok’s arguments use logic to develop their stance on free speech. To brainstorm on one or both of the essays, consider these questions: In your thinking about Serrano’s article, what do you think of “the paradox of tolerance” (434)? Do you accept the logic behind this paradox? Or, does this paradox make Serrano’s argument contradictory and unsound? In your thinking about Bok’s essay, consider that his free speech argument is based on the premise that curtailing speech “simply prevents students from being ‘offended’” (439). What might be problematic about this premise? Does Bok’s
