When I think of revising my work, I think that I have to reread everything and make changes to it. I don’t really like revising because I’m not sure of how to do it so I never want to do it. I’ve had to revise a lot of things for school so the process is always the same. The only thing I gain is maybe making my paper better I think when you proofread and edit, you’re fixing mistakes like spelling or grammar. And revising is when you read it over and see if it’s good or if it needs to add or take things out. I think that Brock Dethier’s piece was good. It had a lot of examples to show how revising helps. And it was easy to read. The resistances to revising that I agree with are numbers 6 and 8. I never know what to do when I have to revise and when other people revise my work, and add a lot of comments, I feel like my work isn’t good enough and that I have to start all over.
I haven’t really done much work on this assignment. I’ve just picked the articles I’m going to use. I don’t have an outline yet either. What I think the purpose of this assignment is, is that we have to compare two articles based on how they’re written and not on which side they’re on.
The topic I chose is immigration. I chose it because it’s a topic that has a lot of controversy. Some people think that immigrants should have a chance to stay here because they’re just trying to work or go to school. But others want to deport them and think they’re taking jobs or causing crime. There are always people protesting, or asking the government or Obama to do something about immigration. I also chose it because some people in my family have immigrated here and have had problems. I want to research the topic so I can learn more about it so that I can understand what is happening and understand both sides. I think I understand the assignment but I just want to be sure if we’re just analyzing the two articles we choose.
The mmain argument Bitzer makes is that rhetorical situation sets things up for rhetorical discourse. He gives examples on how a situation controls how a discourse is made and all the constraints. He also talks about the characteristics of what makes a rhetorical situation. Like if the situation needs a response, if a situation is real, and how a situation either decays or persists.
I agree with Bitzer that for rhetorical discourse to happen there has to be a situation to respond to. Otherwise there is really no purpose to it. I thought it explained things well and everything made sense. He also gave example to prove his point and made things easier to understand.
Emma Watson speech
The UN, all men and women
She has to speak a certain way because it is the UN and she has to be respectful. And she has to have enough support for both genders and not focus on just one.
I think it’s true that ethos, pathos, logos, and style are all connected. You have to consider all of them when you’re trying to understand what someone is trying to persuade you of. They also effect each other and how a rhetoric turns out.
