Rhetorical Analysis

  1. Your rhetorical analysis should analyze a text, not simply describe or paraphrase the content. The analysis must educate the reader about the text by using expository concepts: explain, describe, define, instruct, and inform.
  2. The analysis should use specific examples from the chosen text to support the observations and claims that you make in your essay using proper APA format. The discussion should demonstrate attention to detail and depth of thought.
  3. Your essay should have a beginning, middle, and an ending. These portions of the essay should fulfill the needs and anticipations of readers and enhance the meaning of your essay.
  4. Your essay should have a title—strive for one that is meaningful and/or informative.
  5. The final length of this assignment is 2-3 pages (not to exceed 1200 words). Your final submission should be word-processed, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins on all sides. Please use 12-point, Times New Roman font.
