Rhetorical Analysis Paper

Choose a text to analyze. It may be an actual text or a poster, ad, commercial, film, poem, song, speech, etc. For the rhetorical analysis, you will focus on identifying the appeals of ethos, pathos, logos, and kairos. You need to understand the general message that is being conveyed by the "text" and how the author, creator, or piece persuades the audience to get to the point of that message through the use of rhetorical appeals. You need to cite your "text" and the sources that provide background and support your understanding of the text.
