“Based on a book by journalist Michael Lewis chronicling the real life Oher’s experiences, “The Blind Side” manages to inspire despite its broad-strokes approach to characterization.”(VLM, 2010) The Blind Side is based on a true story, the story of Michael Oher, a homeless boy with a traumatic past until one women, Leigh Ann, took him in as her own son and changed his life for the better.

A prosecutor’s job is to find evidence to support his case against an individual accused of breaking the law while a defense attorney tries to present evidence to prove the innocence of the person accused. Neither can be truly be unbiased about their evidence but each of them is motivated to confirm a particular position. Much like a defense attorney, in his biography, Into the Wild, Jon Krakauer attempts to prove that McCandless’s tragedy was not due to his incompetence or lack of knowledge about the wild. He asserts emotions and rational onto McCandless’s experience as well as drawing similarities between his personal experience and McCandless’s in order to create a more sympathetic response from readers.
This photograph, taken in 1967 in the heart of the Vietnam War Protests, depicts different ideologies about how problems can be solved. In the picture, which narrowly missed winning the Pulitzer Prize, a teen is seen poking carnations into the barrels of guns held by members of the US National Guard. This moment, captured by photographer Bernie Boston symbolizes the flower power movement. Flower power is a phrase that referred to the hippie notion of “make love not war”, and the idea that love and nonviolence, such as the growing of flowers, was a better way to heal the world than continued focus on capitalism and wars. The photograph can be analyzed through the elements of image as defined by ‘The Little Brown Handbook’ on page 86. There
Introduction: John’s domination over the Narrator is evident from the beginning of the short story. The Narrator remains unknown and takes the identity of John’s wife not an individual human being. This identity, further explored, becomes her personality because she obeys John’s every command.
To begin with Equality believes his eventual assessment of his sins are wrong. He is too tall and too smart. He feels so absolutely terrible about how he looks. He truly believe he is sinning by looking the way he does. He discovers electricity, he wants to tell the Council of Vocations. He is very scared that he is going to get into a lot of trouble and be banished. Equality wants to be a scholar, but he knows that the Council of Vocations will not allow that. Equality states “we know that we are evil, but there is no will in us and no power to resist it.”(Pg. 18) This statement proves that Equality honestly believes he is evil, terrible, and a horrible sinner.
Throughout the speech, although the topics may have been harsh for some listeners Renders was always able to put a light spin or attach a joke to what he was speaking about.
Visual Rhetorical Theory allows for readers to view a text in a specific light. Symbols, images, colors, fonts, etc. all can play into the overall meaning of a text. Visual Rhetorical Rhetoric as theory allows the reader to analyze visual artifacts to produce a certain meaning that can be different to each individual. The theory can draw to attention otherization of people groups, how consumer culture in America can change poverty around the world, how southern culture can produce obesity and set bad morals for children, and create a call-to- action for the people. All of these examples listed are from a campaign commercial from Compassion International that was produced in 2008. Compassion is an organization that mainly revolves around showing
Your main points are: 1) That resistance is the refusal to accept or comply with something, and taking the action against undesirable scenarios, and 2) The man resisting losing hope or being afraid in order to save the boy is analogous to you not hesitating to save your brother from the steep embankment he fell into. You effectively support and develop your thesis by providing several examples of the man’s resistance as is true to the definition, and make a logical link between the man’s refusal to avoid suffering in order to save the boy, and you rescuing your brother. Your evidence of the man swimming in the frigid water for supplies (despite being sick) so that the boy can live effectively shows resistance against the fear of the unknown, and
When analyzing images for visual rhetoric, it is an important step to note first impressions that one gets from an image. Understanding the context of this image is crucial to analyzing which types of stakeholders would utilize these visually rhetorical strategies. Examples that come to mind include: ecosystem preservations organizations, entertainment companies that use animals and carry a message of conservation (e.g. SeaWorld). A more cynical mind might consider an oil company to use these visual strategies in order to convince the masses that their drilling for oil actually is environmentally conscious, regardless of how accurate that claim may be. Taking into consideration the calming green and blue hues as well as the inspiring “mission
“Just give me one more month, I swear I’ll pay it by then!” She slammed the phone down in a rage. Tears slowly crawling down her face, jumping off the ends off her cheeks. The letters of foreclosure and bills stacked high on the table, creating a financial fortress. The lights off, because light comes at a cost. That was my mom eight years ago. The author effectively uses symbolism, setting, and the overall pathos of the photograph to effectively evoke the emotions of the reader. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
