UC Davis Rhetorical Triangle and Rhetorical Appeals Discussion

1. Screen the first 5:37 of the Youtube video on “The Rhetorical Triangle”


2. Read the prompt for first longer writing assignment(some backgeound and some methods to analyze)

3. Read the anonymous student sample I’ve posted, a draft.

4. Applying the “rhetorical triangle” introduced in our Youtube video, compose one double-spaced page on the rhetorical appeal or appeals this student made when giving employees the news that s/he was going to introduce a workplace wellness program.

The questions to answer: Did this student convey this news successfully? Why or why not? “Successfully” in this context means that the employees accept the workplace wellness program as necessary.
