Wenbin Wan's reading response

Post  Sailor WAN on Fri Jan 30, 2015 2:41 am

Rhetorical situation is very important when communicating with others. Four key elements: writer, reader, text and medium will be considered, which is so called rhetorical analysis. Actually, we analyze rhetorical situation unconsciously in real life. When we try to present or explain information, we intuitively consider what is the purpose, who is our audience, what kind of style are we going to assign and how we assign it. That is the way I would explain to my friend.

I will appeal logos when writing a mechanics essay, pathos when express feeling and ethos when throw an idea.So it is very hard to say I appeal most when I write online, because it depend on why I am writing, what kind of article I am writing and what l focus on.

Kairos is defined as the best and fittest time to do or complete a event.
Nowadays, everybody can write weblogs through the internet to express their personal thoughts which can be read by anyone who has the access to the internet. Sometimes it is really difficult to tell whether the information posted on somebody's weblog is fabricated or not. If people believe in the fabricated information, chaos may happen.
In 2011, someone posted a weblog in which he or she wrote that ocean around China is currently be polluted by the nuclear leakage, so we cannot get irradiated salt anymore. In a week, salt's price was twenty times higher than usual and salt was sold out in most supermarket in China. It found out that the information was fabricated at last, but it still caused inflation and market disorder in China. So, I agree with it.
The importance of voyeurism is that we must hold the view that what we read and what we saw is not absolutely correct or chaos might happen,just like the example I give above. We cannot believe everything we find on internet or we watch on the television.
Why is Kairos so important?
I look Voyeurism this word up in dictionary, and it is not what it like in the article. HOW?
Most weblog websites are free, as I know, so why they build their website?

Prewriting Assignment #1

Post  Sailor WAN on Mon Feb 09, 2015 5:25 pm

As a big fan of movies, I read a blog related to Christopher Nolan’s latest movie Interstellar. The blog parses the science of Interstellar and talks the fundamental problem with the movie by plain English. After the writer point out the basic problem with the movie, he posted” You’re thinking: Shut up and eat your popcorn. I’m thinking: Fine, it’s only a movie, but don’t tell me it’s scientifically nutritious.” (MLA) I think that this blog talks about mistake of the science of interstellar in the movie by plain English and the style of the blog is spoofy but also a little popular scientifically.

The ideal audience for the blog I picked up is, in my opinion, are physicists and astrophysicists or people who have strong knowledge with theory of relativity and astrophysics. In that way, the blog can be judged correctly. So can the so called science of the Interstellar. Rhetorically, writer probably want the movie lovers who have not so much knowledge about astrophysics to read his blog, so that they can get the right view of the movie Interstellar.

The blog comment is closed right now but it still got 984 comments. After I overviewed several comments, all the comments, in my opinion, can be divided into 3 sorts. The first one is the “thinking writer should shut up and eat his popcorn” group. They are probably big fans of Christopher Nolan’s movies who just want get fun from the movie and they do not want the writer to judge their ideal movie. The second one is “theorist” who have some knowledge about the astrophysics, but are still not proficient in it. Maybe they are students and people who are interested in astrophysics. The last group is “thumb up”, because they give a point of view that this movie is not like filmmaker said which might really happen, but does have fundamental problems in the film.

The blog I picked up is a movie blog written by English. Honestly, I did not read English movie blog before, but I do read a lot of related movie blogs in Chinese after I watched the movie, which is the choice that most of movie fans will do. Some movies are really hard to understand, like another movie by Nolan called Inception. I did not understand the whole things in the movie when I finished it but after I read a very nice movie blog explaining almost everything in the movie. It just like that movie blog is becoming a part of movie, audience need more information about the movie in content and thoughtfully. Why not read the movie blog?

RESPONSE:Obama Republican Spar Q&A

Post  Sailor WAN on Mon Feb 23, 2015 12:36 am

Congressman Pence asked questions about the career situation and economic problem in USA. He didn' t just ask the questions,but started with a story. He met an African American boy. When the boy heard congressman pence would be seeing the president, his eyes lit up and said he wrote the president a letter. Then Pence had a conversation with the father of the boy, his father said,Congressman, it's not like it was when we were coming up. He said, there's just no jobs. What a moving story! Not only tells how tough the job situation in USA but also shows people are suffering from that. And then, Pence showed unemployment percentage change in a year which increased from 7.5% to 10%. Now,Republican offered a stimulus bill which cost half as much as the Democratic proposal in Congress. After saying those, Pence asked the president whether willing to consider embracing the kind of across-the-board tax relief that Republicans have advocated.
I have to said congressman Pence is a very smart man. He not only used both logos and ethos in his question, but also used a very plain tone, which seems like very weak in tone but really a strong question.
Obama is a smart man too. He said,Well, there was a lot packed into that question. The audience laughed. It is a very good way to improve the atmosphere. And then, he promised he would write back to the boy and his family and showed he is happy to embrace those proposals.

Good language organization! I think the description is too much, you should pay more attention to the analysis.

We actually just know how to use rhetorical situation before class, but we don't know what it is. Sounds weird.

Reading Response: Ong's Paper Part 1

Post  Sailor WAN on Wed Mar 04, 2015 9:39 pm


I think that his general argument is about saying literacy is imperious. It is almost most important thing for human expression and thought in high-technology cultures."literacy is regarded as so unquestionably normative and normal, the deviancy of illiterates tends to be thought of as lack of a simple mechanical skill." Literacy is like basic skill for everyone in a high-technology cultures, and it is the media for the high-technology communication. Although oral spoken language works very well in the human life, the function is much more less than literacy. Just like the writer says,"Without writing, the literate mind would not and could not think as it does, not only when engaged in writing but even when it is composing its thoughts in oral form." and " In its typical mindset, the oral sensibility is out to hold things together,but to make and retain agglomerates, not to analyse (which means to take things apart)-although, since all thought is to some degree analytic, it does analyse to a degree."

Reading Response: Gee’s “What is Literacy”

Post  Sailor WAN on Sat Mar 07, 2015 6:42 pm

1. Summarize Gee's definition of literacy. Try using his terminology to illustrate his definition.

2. Did this change your understanding of literacy? If so, how? And, how might this affect your understanding of your own literacy story?

It is a piece of folk wisdom that part of what linguistics do is define words.
It is not individuals who speak and act, but rather historically and socially defined discourses speak to each other through individuals.  The individual instantiates, gives body to, a discourse every time he acts or speaks and thus carries it, and ultimately changes it through time.
Yes. I just think literacy is just the ability to read and write, but I didn't know how important it is to our history and society. Human beings always learn how to speak a language first and then learn how to write. I started to learn write Chinese when I was in elementary school. After I Know how to read and write, I can learn other subjects, because the information of all the subjects are recorded by words, which I need to read and write.

It's just some physics, so don't worry about that. As the fifty shades of grey, I watched it at the opening night, and the whole theater was full. I don't know why,cause most of the audience were female. I thought it should be more males interested in this movie.

Rhetorically, writer probably want the movie lovers who have not so much knowledge about astrophysics to read his blog, so that they can get the right view of the movie Interstellar.

The blog comment is closed right now but it still got 984 comments. After I overviewed several comments, all the comments, in my opinion, can be divided into 3 sorts. The first one is the “thinking writer should shut up and eat his popcorn” group. They are probably big fans of Christopher Nolan’s movies who just want get fun from the movie and they do not want the writer to judge their ideal movie. The second one is “theorist” who have some knowledge about the astrophysics, but are still not proficient in it. Maybe they are students and people who are interested in astrophysics. The last group is “thumb up”, because they give a point of view that this movie is not like filmmaker said which might really happen, but does have fundamental problems in the film.

The blog I picked up is a movie blog written by English. Honestly, I did not read English movie blog before, but I do read a lot of related movie blogs in Chinese after I watched the movie, which is the choice that most of movie fans will do. Some movies are really hard to understand, like another movie by Nolan called Inception. I did not understand the whole things in the movie when I finished it but after I read a very nice movie blog explaining almost everything in the movie. It just like that movie blog is becoming a part of movie, audience need more information about the movie in content and thoughtfully. Why not read the movie blog?

Nowadays, everybody can write weblogs through the internet to express their personal thoughts which can be read by anyone who has the access to the internet. Sometimes it is really difficult to tell whether the information posted on somebody's weblog is fabricated or not. If people believe in the fabricated information, chaos may happen.
In 2011, someone posted a weblog in which he or she wrote that ocean around China is currently be polluted by the nuclear leakage, so we cannot get irradiated salt anymore. In a week, salt's price was twenty times higher than usual and salt was sold out in most supermarket in China. It found out that the information was fabricated at last, but it still caused inflation and market disorder in China. So, I agree with it.
The importance of voyeurism is that we must hold the view that what we read and what we saw is not absolutely correct or chaos might happen,just like the example I give above. We cannot believe everything we find on internet or we watch on the television.
Why is Kairos so important?
I look Voyeurism this word up in dictionary, and it is not what it like in the article. HOW?
Most weblog websites are free, as I know, so why they build their website?
wow I am so interesting in your paper now

2. Did this change your understanding of literacy? If so, how? And, how might this affect your understanding of your own literacy story?

It is a piece of folk wisdom that part of what linguistics do is define words.
It is not individuals who speak and act, but rather historically and socially defined discourses speak to each other through individuals.  The individual instantiates, gives body to, a discourse every time he acts or speaks and thus carries it, and ultimately changes it through time.
Yes. I just think literacy is just the ability to read and write, but I didn't know how important it is to our history and society. Human beings always learn how to speak a language first and then learn how to write. I started to learn write Chinese when I was in elementary school. After I Know how to read and write, I can learn other subjects, because the information of all the subjects are recorded by words, which I need to read and write.
Yet, I think Gee is not easy to understand.
