Day 17

1. Attendance
2. Thoughts on reflection drafts
  • Save your document in the right format. .rtf should work.

  • Write a paragraph!
  • Writing overall is much better than in previous paragraphs. 
 3. Analyzing persuasive strategies
  • Discuss this article.
  • What is the rhetorical context? What is the rhetorical situation? What persuasive rhetorical devices are used?
