A time that I misjudged my rhetorical situation was when I was a new freshman back in August 2017. During the month of August, Texas Woman's University held multiple events for first-year students. One of the many events that I attended was Pioneer Camp. I remember sitting in my dorm room and reading through the Pioneer Camp pamphlet that I was given. I took note of the events that were being held during the week of Pioneer Camp that struck my interest. One of the many events that struck my interest was the involvement fair. I wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to meet new people and find organizations that I could possibly be involved in. I knew that this event would give me a glimpse of what the student involvement is like at Texas
Rhetorical questions are a way to demand the reader’s attention and engage the audience without requesting a concrete answer and hypotheticals get the best of us as we ponder the meaning to an already obvious inquiry. Said obvious things are intrinsically more like statements than questions, but Sanders uses rhetorical questions to directly address the reader on their thoughts of ignorant bigotry and the loss of unneeded chauvinistic tendencies. By introducing some reluctantly talked about topics, Sanders is able to open up the reader’s minds to ways they may have not viewed before. Questions such as “Is excessive nationalism necessarily a bad thing?” and “Is there such thing as being too patriotic?” lead the reader to reflect and reevaluate the constitutions of what it means to love one’s country and if they are the ones in the right or the wrong. Rhetorical questions may come off as vapid, shallow level questions, but in reality, rhetorical questions serve more purpose in arousing ideas than the standard preconception of shallow level responses.
No one wants to read a boring paper. It will make people tired within minutes. Most textbooks have no word or images that captivate their readers. That’s why people avoid reading them because there’s nothing fascinating about it. Writing about a topic that has conflict and visual literacy will keep the audience interested and wanting to read more about it. In a rhetorical situation, there are tones used for different types of audience. Rhetoric is used for different communities. It needs to be a reliable in a specific topic in order to communicate effectively.
Rhetoric has one rule, but many guidelines; the only rule of rhetorical argument is to never argue the inarguable. To defend in rhetoric, spot the fallacies by looking for bad proofs, conclusions, or connections in arguments. The the best way to defend an argument is to use practical wisdom, which is practically the best ways to spot fallacies. There are three types of arguments and one is by the character of the speaker. Virtue is a way to use argument by character. Virtue is a tactic which the speaker takes the middle ground. In rhetoric the best offence is a good defense when the argument is played by the rules.

Initially, the narrator gains his credibility as being a film maker and outdoorsman. His prior experience that draws people who enjoy outdoor activity to gravitate towards his view. The difference between how the film presents the two sides of this argument is the way they chose the individuals who represent each viewpoint. The pro-resort side consists mostly of people with legislative or economic jobs while the pro-wild side is all locals, instead of having the pro people talk about the downsides of such a project. Video of protests and rallies to lobby for the shutdown of this project, highlighting public pushback, enough for the viewer to associate with a cause. Everyone loves to get on a bandwagon, even though that might be more dipping into pathos, if nobody respects these people, no one will listen. Of all the people chosen to speak on behalf of the pro-wild side is a member of the native community, what he says is completely pathos, he represents a community and people who have resided in this wilderness for four-hundred
In the essay 2, I choose Instagram as my social networking site and I choose Cynthia who is one of my best friend in chinese high school for subject. Cynthia is really goot at photography so when she find beautiful lanscape and subjects such as her cute dog, cat and delicious food, she will use the Instagram to share things with us, and when she go to concert and go travel, she will post the photo with friends and family on the Instagram as well. Because she set her instagram priority so the most of her audience are her friends, family, classmates and teachers.
Question 2: I agree that we can not escape rhetoric. Just like you said, rhetoric is pretty much everywhere and it's in pretty much everything. Road signs, for example, are an example of rhetoric because we, as citizens, have come together and have created a mutual understanding of what they are. Examples of rhetoric are pretty much everywhere because there needs to be some type of understanding between people when creating things like laws, buildings, tools, etc.
Rhetoric is the art of using language effectively so as to persuade or influence others, esp. the exploitation of figures of speech and other compositional techniques to this end; the study of principles and rules to be followed by a speaker or writer striving for eloquence, esp. as formulated by ancient Greek and Roman writers (Oxford English Dictionary). Since the 8th century BC, skill and wisdom were prized. The Sophists were originally poets and teachers who spread learning and culture wherever they could for money. Being or appearing wise, the sophists were the good lawyers and advised the governance and the new Athenian democracy. Over a period of time, the Sophists focused more on well-spoken speech and rhetoric, making great claims about their ability to answer all the questions. This caused them up to go against 'modern' thinkers such as Socrates, who did not charge and Plato, who made them look like greedy instructors who used irrational reasoning to deceive and to gain power. Aristotle also helped separate out philosophy and sophism. Many opinions turned against the sophists. Today 'sophism' means the use of deceptive

During this class, I developed in my rhetorical knowledge. I am now more capable of analyzing texts, understanding of audiences, purposes and contexts. I also have more variety in my writings. I learned how to use different words in context and how to formulate a better sentence. I developed my own ideas and opinions through writing about an outgoing conversation. I now understand how to analyze the writing of others, noting focus, arrangement, logical development, vocabulary, and style. I also developed the ability to use various sentence patterns and to edit for correctness, variety, and correct usage. We did this especially while we proofread our own and others drafts.
To start with, I stand by my original answers and arguments on how our Advanced Organizational Behavior class relates to this article, however, I would like to take a
