The first resource that I chose to explore was Rick Rivera's video's. The reason I chose to explore this one first was because of the fact that I am currently enrolled in his English 1C class. I thought that his videos would be similar to his documents that he provided during the first week of school. After looking at his videos, I do think that I would recommend this resource to other. I found his videos to be very helpful and they were set up much like his starting documents. He sectioned off each video into two different groups, which I found to be very helpful. It's always easier for me to find what I'm looking for if it's separated into its own category rather than having to search through numerous pages and videos to find it. I think that his videos are a great starting point for people who are looking to learn some of the basics and for people who just need a refresher. I found all of it to be easy to use because of the …show more content…
I have already explained why I like to use websites, documents, and resources that section it's information off. This website sections everything and it made it so easy for me to look through information that I may need in the future. This was the only resource that I have found so far that was laid out in a way that was easy for me to understand. I found a lot while exploring this resource. There are sections on PowerPoints, sentences, tips for people with writer’s block, and a section just about paragraphs. I would highly recommend this source to others because of the amount of information that is given and because I found it so easy and so helpful to use. It was easy to use because of the drop down options in the menu. It was also helpful to use because of those drop down menus, it kept me from having to search through pages and pages of information that I didn't

Every piece of writing is embellished with its own set of rhetorical techniques meant to influence an audience to agreeing with a certain idea or purpose. In order to persuade and attract the audience, writers tend towards including techniques that invoke pathos or logos. For instance, Tony Robbins uses rhetorical techniques to engage his audience, explaining through active language and rhetorical questions how emotion is the motivating factor for any human action. As such, Robbins asserts that “emotion creates what we are going to do, or the action”. His message is that emotion is the most powerful device that leads people to do what they are doing.
Explain the difference between ethos, pathos and logos and why they are each effective rhetorical strategies. Provide a real-world example of each and how those examples are successful at persuading their intended audience.
About 85% of churches are not fully active with their community. Statics have gotten higher throughout the years, about 40 years ago Mexicans were being treated unfairly due to poor working conditions. This unbarring situation led a fellow leader, Cesar Chavez to step up and build a firm foundation to lead his organization to success. He was the leader of the Mexican-American Community in Delano, Ca. Cesar went through a spiritual fasting, in which he did not eat due to the hazardous chemicals in field fruit. Chavez was a Catholic and used his morals for a nonviolent protest to better working conditions for field workers. Chavez had many helpers from different
LGBT representation is a touchy subject, and Amy is one of the few brave enough to explore the topic. However, she left more than a few holes in her argument, biting off more than she could chew. Her position on the misrepresentation of bisexuals in TV was ineffective at persuading her audience, because of her lack of concrete evidence, misdirection of audiences, and contradictory statements.
From 1954 to 1968, African Americans fought to end segregation in the southern United States through nonviolent protests. As a major leader of the movement, Martin Luther King Jr. encouraged this approach. Ten years after MLK’s assassination, American civil rights activist Cesar Chavez published an article to commemorate the great leader and what he stood for. In his magazine article, Cesar Chavez utilizes logos, pathos, and ethos to convey the importance of nonviolence.
Cesar Chavez, a labor union organizer and civil rights leader, published an article on his views about nonviolent resistance. In his article, he develops his argument about nonviolent resistance by using many rhetorical devices such as logical fallacies, diction and tone, and repetition.
Cesar Chavez, a civil rights leader fighting for improving pay and working conditions of farmers, employs the use of nonviolence resistance in his role as a leader of the United Farm Workers. As a child, Chavez and his family worked as farmers on a field as migrant workers who were most likely treated in an unjust manner and thus, he dedicated his life to improving the conditions for all farmers. To honor Martin Luther King Jr. on the 10th anniversary of his death, Chavez wrote to a religious magazine that helps people in need about the benefits of nonviolent resistance. Throughout his letter, Chavez applies rhetorical devices such as pathos, diction, and juxtaposition to persuade and inform people about how powerful and effective nonviolence techniques can be for civil rights.
In the autobiographical narrative “The Pie” by Gary Soto, the author recreates the experience of his guilty six-year-old self as he describes his first experience with stealing. He effectively portrays his worst sin through his use of contrast, repetition, and imagery. While contrast describes the existence of both the Holy ways and temptation of human desires that Soto faces, repetition emphasizes the guilt that he is feeling, and imagery aids the reader in imagining the guilt and satisfaction that Soto is feeling through the eyes of a six-year-old.
The 60s, a period of hurt and violence. With violence all around, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. promoted nonviolent protests to guide America during a time of outrage.

Cesar Chavez promotes nonviolence though appealing to pathos that leaves the audience with little doubt as to the proper course of action, decisive short syntax, and precise word choice that helps the reader
Keith Grant-Davie's essay on rhetorical situations is an in depth explanation of rhetorical situations. A rhetorical situation is when a rhetorician or writer wants to change the way an audience see's or understands something by using discourse. Grant-Davie describes the four main parts of a rhetorical situation as being the rhetor, an audience, exigence, and constraints. The rhetor, is the speaker or producer that is trying to get an idea into the audiences head. The audience is anyone who is taking in the material that the rhetor is advertising. Exigence is the "problem" that the rhetor is addressing; the whole reason discourse was brought to light. Finally constraints are the boundaries the rhetor follows to butter up the audience. They
Week three’s devotional really touched me. Many people think they can do everything on their own, that they do not need God in their life. I feel that we all need God to help us get through the challenges in our lives, so we can grow and learn from those challenges. John 14:26 says, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you” (NASB). John 14:26 supports my feelings when it comes to needing God, as He will teach us.
Many people would walk into their local grocery store and immediately see some food that they really want, but some may not be able to afford it. With that being said, some may stand there and contemplate stealing it, while others may just walk away. Throughout Gary Soto’s autobiographical narrative, he reflects on his actions using both, diction and imagery. Through diction, he exposes the journey of light and dark times and tells the stealing story with the religious symbolism of Adam and Eve. In imagery, he thoroughly explains the feelings throughout himself and physical appearances of the pie.
A key technique that Tim O'Brien used in order to express his attitude towards the war, was the one of repetition. We see a young Tim O’Brien try to justify his reasons for fleeing the USA by crossing the border to Canada and trying to explain his feelings by saying, “What would you do? Would you jump? Would you feel pity for yourself? Would you think about your family and your childhood and your dreams and all you're leaving behind? Would it hurt? Would it feel like dying? Would you cry, as I did?”. We see repetition predominantly used throughout this passage and it gives us a clearer indication of what his attitude towards the war actually was. The use of repetition makes the reader think about how they would have reacted in a similar situation.
A method that resonates the best for my artifact is Neo-Aristotelian, an “original method of criticism” (Newbold & Scoot, 2017). This method can best help analyze not only speeches, but also advertisements, novels, public service announcements, etc. Deliberative genre, outlined by Aristotle, is demonstrated in this speech as an attempt to “persuade [young adults] to take some action” to become successful in their future (Nordquist, 2017). Thoroughly invested in the future of young adults, success is what Eric Thomas strives for his audiences to reach and works at gaining their initiative to do so.
