Class #15: Wednesday, November 2, 2016: ASSIGNMENT

 Informal Essay 6#: Using the David Wright, Furman University article on rhetorical appeals (I gave you a hard copy a few weeks back, but if you do not remember, grab it here), consider these three popular infomercials. Consider how these commercials manipulate viewers by combining the use of appeals. Now, you will find your own example of these appeals at play in the media of your choice (anything---visual, written, social). In one typed page, discuss how dissecting your medium using these appeals helps you understand the rhetoric. Use at least one direct example from your medium and try to properly cite it (APA style, use Hacker).
