This is a two and a half hour timed rhetorical analysis about sample essays you were required to read earlier in the semester (you will find out the name of the essays to write about once you launch this one question test). Please DO NOT LAUNCH IT UNTIL you have some quiet time to work on it. Use the skills you’ve learned with regard to rhetorical analysis from the handouts in the early modules, the chapters in the text, the first rhetorical analysis that you wrote for the class (or will write in the next couple of days), and our class discussions to structure your essay.
I would suggest reviewing the prompt for the out-of-class rhetorical analysis paper & the sample rhetorical analysis paper (both of these are more extensive than you will need to write for the final, but the idea is the same), and the sample midterm for more insights.
Please note: NOT all students will receive the same essay to write about. The essays will be chosen from a pool. Any student submitting an essay that their test does not ask them about will receive a non-passing grade.
The test will explain more fully, but you should write a 3-5 paragraph rhetorical analysis supported by evidence for this assignment.
