Reflective Rhetorical Analysis
Â· Identify what you were trying to persuade your audience to do, feel, or believe.
Â· Identify your purpose in trying to persuade your audience.
Â· Who was your audience? What traits of that person or group shaped your ability to be persuasive?
Â· Consider your ethos at the time: your character or credibility. How did your values or your qualifications shape your rhetoric?
Â· Did you make use of pathos or logos in trying to persuade your audience? How and why?
Â· What was significant about the context of this situation: the time, the place, your histories. Even the music playing in the background. Consider â€œkairosâ€ here (see Praxis 13-16).
Â· What would you do differently today, and why?
