Unit goal essay question

Unit Goal/Essay Question

Using informational text from the unit, make a convincing argument for which text makes the most effective use of rhetoric.


The classical argument

The Classical Argument

  • Exordium – draws in reader

  • Narration – provides background

  • Partition – defines parameter of the argument (make claim)

  • Confirmation – offers support (evidence/reasons)

  • Refutation – responds to opposing positions

  • Peroration – concludes, compelling people to think or act


Classical argument example

Classical Argument Example

The WGA and AMTP are at odds over digital rights royalties.

The WGA should be paid for new media broadcasts.

1988 was the last renegotiation for the WGA; the DVD market was in its infancy and digital rights were unheard of.

WGA members make 2 cents per DVD sold. They make 0 cents from digital rebroadcasts.

The studios will lose money, but they make billions and none will fold by a 2 cent increase in writer’s pay.

Writers should be paid for digital media rights and paid more for DVD sales.
