Writing Assignment 1: Rhetorical Synthesis of Public Discourse Summary You will write a rhetorical synthesis of three samples of discourse that argue for a social justice or community action.

Samples of public discourse may include speeches or other public addresses (radio, television, online, public meeting, or congressional meeting); editorials in newspaper, glossy magazine, or other popular press outlet; websites or blogs; and others. The samples you choose should represent different genres of argument.
