After CLOSELY READING the article (Lower the legal drinking age),
You are analyzing the rhetoric used in the article. You are NOT summarizing the article, or posting your opinion about the article. If you do this, you will get 0 points. Is the author using pathos, logos, kairos or ethos? Is he using some examples of each? What about “rhetorical devices” Who is his audience? Is there something that the author wants you to believe? Does he do a good job of persuading you about what he wants to think? What about the pictures, subtitles, titles? Are they designed to persuade you about something?
Finally, look closely at the sample rhetorical analysis I gave you with the article “What Drives Success?” Read over this closely. Read over my notes on the sample essay (although my notes are sloppy). Think about what the author of the essay included in her essay. You may want to include items like hers.
