Sa2 Outcome Analysis

Outcome 2
I choose to use SA2 for this outcome. This assignment is about analyzing the rhetorical choices and evidences choices made by others. I need to have a good understanding about the correct use of rhetorical choices in order to make just judgement about whether others make effective rhetorical choices or not. In addition, the evidences play an important role in a persuasive paper, so I also need to determine whether the authors choose effective evidences to support their main claims. Through this assignment, I also reflect on my writings and think about how I can improve my paper using other people’s paper as references.
To read, analyze, and synthesize complex texts and incorporate multiple kinds of evidence purposefully in order to

However, the evaluation itself need to be persuasive and has evidences to support it. In the assignment, I read two articles comparatively so that I make my evidences sufficiently support my main claim. Every piece of evidence is carefully picked from the context of the original paper for specific reason, so they are the most effective ones that could add points to my claim from different aspects.
- The writing demonstrates an understanding of the course texts as necessary for the purpose at hand.
Clearly I need to understand the papers themselves before evaluating them. I show my understanding to be sufficient by summarizing the main claims of the two papers. “She (Leslie, Larry Z) argues that celebrities are social-psychological creations and behave no better than the rest of us, so they have no responsibilities as role models.” (SA2, Pg. 1) And “(James G. Mitchell) suggests that celebrities are role models for both adults and children.” (SA2, Pg. 1) Other than main claims, I point out the evidences they use in the paragraphs where I talk about each of their paper in detail.
- Course texts are used in strategic, focused ways (for example: summarized, cited, applied, challenged, re-contextualized) to support the goals of the

However, I choose to divide these papers into sections, and each section has its own argument. Each of the evidence is interrelated to make the overall claim stronger. So I view them separately and also as a whole in order to determine their effectiveness. “First, she points out that it is unclear that who qualifies as a celebrity in today’s technology-rich media environment.” (SA2, Pg. 1) “Second, society’s changing moral values have essentially eliminated the need for celebrities as role models.” (SA2, Pg. 1) “Third, and most importantly, celebrities do not behave differently than most other members of the society.” (SA2, Pg.

    Some of the different strategies that I had used for each of the different essays is counterarguments, peer edits and reviews, knowing when my information is credible, and St. Martin’s Writing Guide. All of these things have strengthened my critical thinking during revisions and while writing my essays. The different tasks helped me look at new things to write about and how to present these different tasks properly, counterarguments helped me look at the topic I was supporting and find an argument against why my side was not the strongest, peer edits and reviews helped me revise essays strongly, and the St. Martin’s Writing Guide introduced new techniques of writing that were new to me and how to do it strongly. In my Proposing a Solution essay, I had used multiple different sources to prove one point in several different ways. The multiple sources came together to support my side of the topic.…

    Through this assignment, I was required to not only think critically while reading the texts, but also write critically based on what I have read. Using these two skills together, I was forced to identify each of the writer’s purpose and depict the rhetorical manner they were writing them. Then, I was able to compare them separately, and later together. Using these skills combined was not only an example of critical thinking and writing in one place, but also demonstrated to me how comparing two separate texts together can further show me things I could not see before. Assignment 2 was the first assignment I have ever came across to force me to both think and write critically, and I believe it is a beneficial introduction to do…

    After my first read of the transcript, I read it a second time and highlighted keywords that I felt were important and needed to be analyzed.
