Rhetorical situation

Post  Yanzc on Fri Jan 30, 2015 2:52 am

Rhetorical situation,simply,means how you deliver information to someone else,but it depends on many factors.And if you can figure out your rhetorical situation,it will helps your writing a lot.There are 4 key elements:writer,reader,text and medium.As a writer,you need know what you are writing and do you have some aim about writing.Then for readers,you should know who you want to convert message to and if you have certain readers,what is the relationship between you and readers,if it is needed to write in some styles.Of course,you have your text,it helps to decide the form,for example your assignment or lab report.Finally,it is your medium,whether you have a required medium,and if it is easier to express you thought by graph or video or something else.
As far as I am concerned,logos is the best way.I think too much strong emotion is not a good way to convince others,and nowadays,too many people write online using exaggerted way,it is easy to make readers boring.We can express ourselves more logically,so readers will settle to see what we want to say.

Kairos describes both the sense in which discourse is understood as fitting and timely--the way it observes propriety or decorum--and the way in which it can seize on the unique opportunity of a fleeting moment to create new rhetorical possibility.

As I can find,the concern is that people are too easy to make many others heard thier words(we don't know it is ture or not) through blog,and this medium seems to replace how we know others in real life.I completely agree with these.My concern is blog may be not used as its originalpurpose,because of its popularity,someone could spread rumours through it.By the way,for the coming NBA all stars,Justin Bieber's twitter helps Lowry beat Wade to win All-star starter,so it can turely change something.

Voyeurism a nature of human that I don't know right from wrong sometimes is the reason why we write or read.For writer,they need to know readers' desire and whether it is proper to write it.As for readers,voyeurism will push them to read,they will be intersted in such things.

Assignment 3

What I want to write is a blog of a former professional DOTA player 2009,who is now a dota commentary.Of course,his blog is mainly about his dota stories.He will put his new first personal view dota video's link on his blog,and write several highlight points to attract people.He will also advertise his online store through some intersting ways.And there is no doubt that writing something in his daliy life and view of some hot topics is an indispensable part.

I think many people who plays DOTA will follow his blog.For a dota player,watching an intense game will be very enjoyable,also learning a lot skills.To my observation,there are many audiences who don't play dota now still follow.They may simply like this person or like watching something about DOTA.

Like all social network site,there will be a section under blog for readers discussing.Audience will express their thought in that place and talk to other readers,sometimes quarrel.People get intersted in his life when he just became a professional player which is considered a bad work,just a game,not steady.People will be excited of his excellent perfomence.It is a good place to a dota gamer.

As I said,this is a place for dota players,so the game is the most important thing to attract them here.He may put some screen in his blog or some funny pictures.However, most attractive things I think is title like Rampage Sven or Twice Holyshit!Because we konw this game,we know what he means.Audiences make comments and writer give feedback,it works!

Assignment 4

Post  Yanzc on Fri Feb 20, 2015 3:02 am

Of course, politicians use evidence to support thier ideals, so evidence should be convinced. I think there are mainly two typses. First one is what many ordinary people concern about. For example, the congresswoman from west Virginia(19'10"), she said people there considered obama's polcies are job-killing. Second is to list the certain data like the first congressman did(2'10").

As I am concerned, this speech consists of 3 parts. For the first, question is about policy and unemployment. Comgressmen think that obama's policy doesn't work even sometimes making bad influence. So they told obama the current situation, accutaly they doubt policy and want to ask if is right to apply it or not. The second part is about health care. They think obama just doesn't keep his promise to improve it. I don't know it is attack or remind, maybe both. For the third part, I don't figure it out clearly. It may be about cooperation between two partys or international affairs.

What impressed me most is two congressmen's question. One is the first congressman, he talks about unemployment. His speak is full of pathos. When he refers the ratio of unemployment, he use a low voice and slow speed which is a great way to attract people and make the question more serious. And the second congressman(23'30"), a freshman, he ues a completely a different way to put the question. He use the way of ethos, he directly point out that obama didn't do what he said which makes people disappointed. His voice is powerful. If you don't prepared well, you may be flustered. Futhermore, most comgressmen used logos way which seems more friendly.

He is congressman Pence, a very smart man. He used pathos, because he knows it is very useful in politics.

I think the general argument of the first part is that writing which is a part of literacy is important to human culture. I find following two points to prove it. “Illiterates should learn writing as they learned to tie their shoe-laces or to drive a car” and “The fact that we do not commonly feel the influence of writing on our thoughts shows that we have interiorized the technology of writing so deeply that without tremendous effort we cannot separate it from our- selves or even recognize its presence and influence.”

The definition is that a socially accepted association among ways of using language, of thinking, and of acting that can be used to identify oneself as a member of a socially meaningful group or a social network. The writers explain several definitions to help us understand literacy, like discourse, acquisition and learning.
My answer is yes ! This article changes my understanding of literacy. Before reading this, I think literacy is just the ability to read and write, like reading speed or writing skills. However, after I read this article, I realize that literacy is not just about individual, but a social relationship. When we read, we are communicating with writers. When we write, we express ourselves to audience.

Assignment 7

Post  Yanzc on Fri Mar 13, 2015 1:56 am

My three literacy stories are as follows:

The first one, when I was in my second grade, we had a story time on Chinese course. Everyone could share stories they had read, and each time, I would tell story I read from Aesop' Fables. So I got a nickname king of story. This is such a great experience to me that I will never forget.

The second one, when we learned Chinese characters, dictation is a common way to test. Then there are heavy punishment if we write incorrectly. We were asked to copy wrong characters 300 times for each. Some student hold three pens to write at the same time. It sounds interesting, but I am sure you don't want to try.

The third one, when I were in third grade, my composition got almost full grades. I excited for a long time! However, guess what? It is not a good start to my writing. I rewrite this article in fourth, fifth and six grades. And the grades become lower and lower. Hah, it seems just a joke. After that my writing skill is poor till now.

Before I read this article, I always thought that literacy is all about reading and writing, so I hate literature because I do not like reading.
In the contrast, I can understand a lot after read and write so much words and I become familiar with different rhetorical devices.

Your first question is related to humanity and political science.It is a tough question and I think you can expand it more precisely.
The second question is about social science Razz
