This final assignment has two parts – reading the text and identifying the main argument and persuasive strategies and then writing an essay in response. Choose one of the following:
Option 1: After you have read both articles, write a multi-paragraph essay which integrates your analysis of BOTH texts, and in which you write a reasoned position comparing and contrasting the strategies each writer uses to appeal to its intended audience.
Option 2: After you have read both articles, write a multi-paragraph essay in which you analyze ONE of the texts. In your analysis take a reasoned position on the extent to which the text is rhetorically effective given its intended audience.
