Before I started I didn’t know anything about this topic. When i did research in the past i never did a rhetorical analysis. Something that. Learned from doing research this way is that a story or a text is not always target to everyone, they can have specific audiences. Something that I learned about myself as a researcher is that its hard for me to find the context and differentiate it from the message. What i learned about analyzing something rhetorically is that there are different tones for different purposes. I don’t think that it something that I will do in the future because I feel like it takes up a lot of time, if it was something that was easy for me to do then yes but I do struggle with it so its a no for me. The hardest part of the annotated bibliography had to be the rhetorical analysis. I tried to figure it out by looking at other peoples work but i was still confused.
ENG 1101 is about you getting more comfortable with your own process. You’ll look at tools and ideas about how language is used to communicate and persuade and even exclude. And you’ll be introduced to concepts like transfer, genre, and metacognition.
