Williams 1 -1 January 2007 Part B: Rhetorical Analysis (word count: 617) Upon completion of my two descriptions, I have learned how to create a persuasive effect to change the angle of vision in my writing. Using most of the strategies discussed in the text I was able describe the same scene of a morning spent on a park bench in both a negative and positive way. To prepare myself for this, I first imagined myself depressed and annoyed in order to observe the scene negatively. It was harder for me to look at the scene in a positive way, so I imagined myself on vacation Christmas Eve, relaxing by a lake. In doing this, I was able to see positive aspects in what before, seemed only negative. Following my observations, I used detail selection and omission, word choice, and figurative language to describe two different perspectives of the scene from the park. In the first, positive, description I tell you that birds are chirping, leaves are crackling, ducks are splashing, and I go on to tell you how relaxing these sounds are.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
