But using too much or too little of any technique can throw off the writing piece. Cepeda starts off her writing with giving her reader logos but as she gets deeper into the article she overshadows her own voice and her point of view using summary and pathos and no ethos. The techniques used in the article are not evenly distributed causing the reader to be partially effected by her writing.

    Her paper is a pure opinion oriented paper with very little research and data to back it up. Her main goal is not to prove the positivity of local food consumption but to destroy her opponent credibility. Emotion appeal is used many times on this paper, and it is used in the worst way possible: to humiliate and disgrace someone. However, she does consider the opposition point of view and organization very thoroughly, because it is his weakness that she attacks into. This article does help fluctuate the opinion of people from Bundainsky’s article due to its deep analysis, but it does not convincing.…

    The lost of one's hopes and dreams can be a delicate thing to grasps so when Mr. Mallard snatched it out of her hands by showing up alive her heart was broken and killed her. Chopin way of describing how scared Mrs. Mallard was at facing her truth actually made her someone anyone can relate to but it also gives us some depth on how forbidden that pleasure is. Something so untouchable like her independence and freedom was rare and for her to have seen it at all was a miracle. While reading a story like this you learn to not take everything for granted because someone else might not have that leisure like you…

    Her credibility is built, but at the same time lost, from using these resources because they are not suitable to cite. Using pathos, she manipulates the emotions of the audience by pointing out the negatives that come from drinking out of water bottles. By having an unclear perspective on the entire situation, the author lacks the opposition of a naysayer. As appealing as the article would be to the Shorthorn audience, in response to the request of the Shorthorn editor, I cannot recommend…

    Even though a lot of examples were given, one would not find the article persuasive because of her quick assumptions due to her defensive tone throughout the article which lowered her creditability to persuade her audience. Anne-Marie Slaughter addresses several different points in her article. She sections her article off in different topics pertaining to the subject of the passage. For example, “Redefining the Arc of a Successful Career” and “Innovation Nation.” But when she discusses her many different points, she makes several assumptions which leads to an article that falls short of persuasion. One assumption Slaughter makes is what her readers will think of her ideas and what she is trying to say.…

    Readers are not laughing with her but at her. She is criticized for not being able to remake herself or control her life, which are two traits that logically cannot be controlled. Although this is a British novel it revolves around the American myth of self-perfection. Jones rejects this staple and remains how she is. However despite the set backs to the feministic views of this book, Bridget’s voice is authentic because she still expresses what every person goes through.…

    With the authors use of overly sentimental appeals, it dulls the audience to the claim the author uses making it seem that the authors claim must be true since she is so sentimental about it. Additionally, the rhetorical fallacy, hasty generalization can be seen in the opinion piece as the author claims emotional energy is what set her back when looking for a job, therefore, everyone unemployed must be set back by emotional energy. Although this could be true, the lack of logical data in the authors opinion piece cannot support the claim made. With additional research on emotion energy, I found that emotional energy and how we focus our energy, proving that your own mind can…

    She wasn’t very forthcoming trying to explain what she had meant and I had trouble gauging her meaning from the text. We were both getting a little frustrated that we couldn’t understand each other. When we had finished reviewing her paper, I tried to reassure her that what she had written had excellent content matter and was well thought out but all she could focus on where the revision notes about obscure meaning or miss-steps in grammar. It was emotionally draining to try and give her techniques to improve her as a writer when it didn’t seem as if she wanted them at all and made the whole process feel…

    As she says in her essay, “skills and knowledge are what help students get jobs in the real world.” That is why she wants her peers to know they should not be proud of having poor work ethics. Even though I agree with all of Widner’s arguments and points. She fails to help me relate to her on an emotional level and see where her frustration is nothing more than a condescending approach. Her quotes offer little to no solution, only harsh criticism that pushes the author away from being able to relate to her frustrations. Several arguments are clear in Widner’s essay in order to support her thesis, she just cannot find a good connection with the…

    They are mostly secondary sources, and because of her lack of sources, Vance has to draw a lot of assumptions. Because of this, Vance tells a colorful narrative of Marie Antoinette, often presenting the narrative as if through Antoinette’s own thoughts. This makes the text seem a little less trustworthy. In addition, Vance also places her own commentary in parentheses throughout the text, which adds humor to the story, but takes a hit at the legitimacy of the text. There was little study done on women of history during Vance’s era and prior to it, so the lack of sources is understandable, which is why for the next text, we jump ahead roughly thirty years to…
