Complete the activity “Murder, Rhetorically
Speaking,” that I will upload/attach. The activity will be self-guided.
After you have spent five minutes writing as a police detective, a
coroner, a brother, and a lawyer, reflect on the changing nature of
rhetorical situations and answer at least three of the following
How did you interpret each rhetorical situation?
What types of details did you find yourself adding? Leaving out?
What kind of words did you choose? Avoid?
How did you choose to organize your writing?
What tone did you take (think of a specific adjective) when addressing your audience?
How did you appeal to ethics, emotion, or logic?
How did you know how to write like a detective/coroner/brother/lawyer in the first place?
