Analyze a text, paying special attention to the features
Analyze a text, paying special attention to the features/ English
Your task is to analyze a text, paying special attention to the features that influence a piece of writing the most: the audience, the writer’s orientation, the rhetorical situation, and the genre (COLFV features). Use the sample rhetorical analysis on pages 42-47 as a flexible guide (not a rigid model). The content of your project should differ from the sample because you are analyzing a different text, but the format of your analysis should contrast with the sample as well, due to the nature of this assignment.
PART A : TEXT & SUMMARY
• Select one of the texts available on BlackBoard under Project #1, labeled “Text Options.” Annotate a hard copy of the text.
• Write a SUMMARY: Use one of the texts made available for this assignment on Blackboard. Apply what you have learned about analyzing texts using the COLFV model and write a summary of your findings. ?Your COLFV summary will include:
1: rhetorical information about the text
2: a brief description of content
3: a brief description of organization
4: a brief description of language
5: a discussion of the values that might be held by the discourse community of ?readers and writer.
