Rhetorical Thinking important for your writing/reading/listening/critical thinking in English and your native language. This is one of the most important skills I learned in undergraduate! 
For this unit we will prepare a 3-4 page essay analyzing rhetorical situations. This will help prepare you for ESL 112.

Warm up: First, lets look at these three different forms of communication by me.
One, two, three
  • How are these different?
  • List as many forms of communication you do. List in groups on the board.
  • The type of communication we do in class depends on the Rhetorical Situation
  • Let's look at this powerpoint
  • Now pick three kinds of rhetorics you wrote on the board and analyze them with this worksheet.
  • Finally,write two to three compare/contrast sentences comparing the kinds of rhetoric we did in class.

Look at the this Analysis of Rhetorical Situations handout
