presents an argument, and analyze the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of this argument.
Prompt: For this assignment, you will watch
•Sir Ken Robinson’s Ted Talk titled “How Schools Kill Creativity”
•Linda Ciliatt-Wayman’s Ted talk, titled “How to Fix a Broken School? Lead Fearlessly, Love Hard.”
Then, you will write an essay in which you
evaluate only ONE of the speaker’s arguments (you are free to choose whichever video you’d like to evaluate, I dont mind)
This, of course, does NOT mean that you should agree or disagree with the speaker; instead, you will provide a deep analysis of the rhetorical strategies the speaker uses to convince his specified audience of his point. You will need to restate his thesis/argument in yourown words, identify his targeted audience, and show how he or she did an effective or ineffective job at convincing the audience. Identify the argument and audience in your introduction. Then, in your own thesis, state whether the presented argument is effective or not and spend the body paragraphs focusing on the different strategies and how they are being used. You are analyzing the way the author presented his or her argumentto determine whether it is an effective or ineffective argument.
In order to analyze the argument, you will consider the author’s use of:
Appeals (pathos, logos, ethos)
Types/Strength of evidence
OR any other points we have discussed or you have encountered in the text
You will need to
1) Point out any instances where the speaker used one of
these elements by providing a quote from the speech
2) Comment on whether or not the speaker did so well/whether the use of this strategy contributed to effectiveness of his or her argument.
You do NOT have to address each of these elements, but you must pick a
minimum of FIVE (5). Each of the five can be presented in its own separate paragraph or you may combine any as you see fit. Each paragraph should have a topic sentence that points back to the thesis
