The writer NEEDS to be familiar with the book Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell. This paper is a rhetorical analysis based off of the entire book! Below I will add the instructions on what is needed for this paper.
As you begin your Rhetorical Analysis, consider three main objectives you’ll have in this essay: 1) make a central, analytical claim based on evidence, 2) find the best evidence from across the whole text, and 3) organize those examples into logical ways, for instance, by classifying strategies into categories. A long essay needs to be planned, from deciding on the main point, which may be a variation on the thesis sentence in your Reaction Paper, to making sure you are choosing good examples from across the text with good direct quotes to analyze, to sorting out what will be where and why. There’s no necessity or even, necessarily, any logic to copying Gladwell’s chapter-by-chapter organizational plan which, as you know, jumps all around the world and history. You’ll need to decide what order of paragraphs makes the most sense for your argument, not his.
I am going to attach my Reaction Paper, which was written to prepare for the Rhetorical Analysis. Please uuse the Reaction Paper provided to build the Rhetorical Analsysis. THIS IS IMPORTANT.
