Blog 13 - Rhetorical Mode - Definition

HiRes


       Please read these two articles and write a brief straight lead defining your position.  With definition, you will also need some AMPLIFICATION, or details that help the reader to understand your position.  It's an extremely powerful tool for writers, and a great one to use.  Use a conversational tone with logical appeals.  For help -- before doing the exercise -- work through Device #31 (Amplification) in the Literary Devices Notebook.  When you use this device, WRITE THE SENTENCES IN ALL CAPS -- that will show me you understand the concept.
