Describe an example of effective persuasive communication that you have encountered and identify the different parts of the rhetorical situation. Who was the speaker or writer and who was the target audience? What was the purpose of the argument? What setting did the argument take place in and how might the communication have changed if it were in a different context? How does this example illustrate the qualities of effective persuasive communication from the reading this week?
Wrap up your post with at least one open-ended question for your classmates to consider as they help you dig deeper into the ideas you shared this week.
