“Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.” –Plato, 380 BC

For this essay, you will be applying the Aristotelian appeals (ethical, logical, and emotional) to the rhetoric of ONE of the three articles below (and each can be found easily on the Internet, too):

Your essay must show an understanding of ALL THREE appeals: ethos, pathos, and logos.You must offer a critical evaluation and analysis of the article and bring in new insights of where the author could have strengthened one or more of their appeals. Try to separate out your analysis of each of the appeals, but it’s OK if once in awhile the appeal analysis overlaps with another; appeals often do this anyway. Just make it clear which appeal(s) is your predominant focus in each of your paragraphs, however you decide to structure your essay (this does not have to be a 5-paragraph composition).

You must include the following components in your rhetorical analysis:

  • In the introduction paragraph(s), generally address the topic at hand and why it matters to certain people, summarize the article, provide the author’s central argument and purpose,and give some context about the author.
  • Establish a clear thesis in which you state the main points you will make regarding your rhetorical analysis of this article. You should mention the Aristotelian appeals, asserting your evaluation of each appeal’s effectiveness (ineffective? somewhat effective? highly effective?).
  • Summarize in your own words a few of the key claims the author presents in the article and identify the evidence type (ie. fact, line of reasoning, personal testimony, expert opinion, etc.). and concretely cite the supporting evidence itself (meaning you should quote and/or paraphrase). Describe how strong the content and delivery of that evidence is.
  • Analyze and evaluate the different kinds of strategies the author uses to convince the audience. You must consider all three appeals: ethos, pathos and logos (ethical, emotional, and logical appeals . . . you should use the English form of the terms, rather than the Greek; just be consistent). Remember to identify the strategy and go in depth on HOW it might allow them to persuade the audience. Also, consider any weaknesses the speech has or alternative ways the information could have been presented.
  • Comment on the significance of your essay and the topic at hand. How did this experience change or enhance your views on education and career paths? Apply thoughtful “real world application” insights. By the end of the essay, it’s OK to use “I” and make it personal.

Rhetorical Requirements:

As you evaluate the rhetorical strategies employed in the article, you will employ rhetorical strategies of your own to convince your reader that the argument you are making is well supported. Please consider the following:

  • Audience: Write the paper formally, as if addressing an educated reader who is unfamiliar with the author and article.
  • Evidence: Present and analyze specific quotations and examples from the article as evidence for the author’s claims—as well as your own claims.
  • Structure: Use an effective structure that carefully guides the reader from one idea to the next. Pay careful attention to topic sentences and transitions between ideas and paragraphs.
  • Presentation: Edit your paper thoroughly so that sentences are readable and appropriate for an academic audience. Use proper MLA format.
  • Underline your thesis on the final copy you turn in.

Submit your final draft online to Canvas by the due date (11:59 p.m. on Sunday evening, 3/24). If there are technical issues on Canvas . . . make sure to email me a copy directly (one that I can open–and it’s always safe, too, to copy and paste your essay content into the body of the email itself so that I can see it is completed).

By the way…

You are performing a rhetorical evaluation and analysis of this text. The focus should not be whether or not you agree or disagree with the author.

Essay #2: Grading Rubric


Accurately and effectively introduce and contextualize the author’s background, their article, and their central argument and purpose in your introduction. This includes having an effective attention grabber on the topic at hand.


Establish a clear thesis that states the major points you will make in your rhetorical analysis of the article. It should explain the major rhetorical moves you will discuss/evaluate and to what extent you feel this article to be persuasive.


Summarize in your own words a few of the claims the author makes and analyze the ways in which he or she supports them. Demonstrate a critical comprehension of the article.


Identify and critically analyze and evaluate the different kinds of evidence the author uses in order to advance his or her argument. Listing evidence is not a critical discussion. Include how the evidence supports a specific claim the author makes.


Critically analyze and evaluate the different kinds of strategies they use to convince the audience. You must consider all three appeals: ethos, pathos and logos. Remember to identify the strategy and go in depth on HOW it might allow the author to persuade the audience. Describe to what extent each appeal is effective.


Effectively use textual evidence to support your analysis. Adequately introduce, correctly cite, and effectively comment on the quotation or paraphrase.


Use an effective structure that smoothly guides the reader from one idea to the next. Include transitional phrases and effective, substantially crafted topic sentences.


Have thoroughly edited your paper. Adhere to MLA format, length requirement, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.


Thoughtfully and eloquently conclude your discussion. Comment on the significance of your essay and the topic at hand. The “heart of the matter” is considered here, along with, perhaps, some “real world” application.


Voice and style will be considered here. Use third person (he/she) when appropriate and a formal academic tone. Avoid wordiness and always use present tense when discussing texts (unless you are referring to a specific point in the past).
