Moreover, we have looked at several written texts for their claims, evidence, and rhetorical strategies and analyzed how these academic texts advance their arguments. Not only have you analyzed one text for the author’s choices, but your last paper called on you to synthesize two academic texts. Now, we will turn our attention to analyzing one academic text and one alternate form of media. For this assignment, we will watch the documentary, Ivory Tower (2014) by Andrew Rossi. In the documentary, Rossi explores the value of a college education considering the ever-rising costs and offers insight into various forms of higher education. Your goal for this assignment is to identify Rossi’s overall argument, claims that he makes in order to advance his argument, the evidence he provides, and the rhetorical moves he makes to persuade the reader. Then, you will be responsible for locating one outside text—found on SDSU’s Library Database—that relates the argument being made in the documentary. You can find a text that agrees with Rossi’s stance, disagrees, qualifies, or illustrates the argument being made. Just like the last paper, your goal is to effectively synthesize the two genres and offer analysis on how they each present their argument. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ GOALS: • • • • • Watch documentary, take extensive notes on overall argument, claims, evidence, and rhetorical strategies Locate an academic text that relates to the topic at hand—cost of college & value of a degree—and also identify the overall argument, claims, evidence, and rhetorical strategies Begin finding areas where the documentary and written text agree, disagree, or use similar/different rhetorical strategies Put the two media “in conversation” and analyze the effectiveness of their choices Develop an essay between 4-5 pages _______________________________________________________________________________________________ GUIDELINES: 1. Intro: a. strong hook, background context on your selected topic, introduce authors & texts, road map of your analysis, thesis 2. Body (within each body paragraph): a. provide an account of each author’s central claims and explain how these claims strengthen the author’s main idea b. describe some of the rhetorical strategies both authors use, provide interpretation and analysis of how these strategies work, and explain the impact of these decisions in relation to the author’s purpose and audience c. analyze rhetorical strategies d. evaluate how effectively or ineffectively the author uses said rhetorical strategies 3. Conclusion: a. offer a conclusion that is not merely repetitive, but instead offers insight into the significance of the topic as a whole 4. MLA 8 Works Cited _______________________________________________________________________________________________ EVALUATION CRITERIA: → Comprehension o Effectively addresses all aspects of the prompt o Fully grasps both articles and showcases knowledge cogently → Development o Details/analyzes chosen texts thoroughly and thoughtfully o Writer thoroughly address elements of the argument, including author, context, audience, purpose, claims, and evidence. o Analysis of rhetorical strategies is thorough → Organization o Essay flows logically from introduction → body → conclusion o Sentence level organization is strong → Expression/Mechanics/Grammar _______________________________________________________________________________________________ IMPORTANT DATES:       03.19: Discussion of Prompt; Practice; Brainstorming; Contextual Videos 03.26: Watch Documentary; Locate Secondary Text 04.02: Spring Break—Draft your Essay 04.09: In-class Peer Review 04.16: Conferencing—You will meet with either me or Gaby for a 10-minute one-on-one meeting to discuss your essay 04.23: Final Essay Due SLOS: → Develop an effective process of reading for comprehension → Develop an effective writing process—including prewriting, drafting, revision, and self-evaluation → Analyze the elements of academic texts—particularly argument, genre, audience, context, purpose, and strategies → Articulate in writing key rhetorical concepts. ...

The Burden of a College Education
After the signing of the Title IV of the higher education act in 1965, Lyndon B. Johnson
would proceed to declare that “This Nation could never rest while the door to knowledge
remained closed to any American.” This act was passed with the purpose of ensuring that every
student had the opportunity to pursue an education regardless of their background with the hopes
of promoting equality and creating opportunities for social mobility. Sadly however modern day
America does not seem to reflect the dream by President Johnson. Andrew Rossi in his 2014
documentary Ivory Tower asserts that college education has simply become too expensive, it has
become a huge burden for the parents and students alike and this has essentially made
completion and access difficult especially for low income families. This is because there has
been a decline in government funding and as a result these costs have been passed on to the
student in the form of tuition. This forces students to take up student loans in order to be able to
afford an education while some students choose to avoid college altogether so as not to deal with
the huge financial burden. Students are plagued with these debts for most of their life and student
loans have even been referred to as modern day slavery. Student loan debt have now reached up
to $1 trillion because most students are unable to secure employment even after acquiring a
college education. In 2013 for instance nearly half of college graduates were either unemployed
or underemployed. Daniel A. Austin in his 2013 article suitably titled The Indentured

Surname 2

Generation: Bankruptcy and Student Loan Debt finds that Americans who borrowed heavily to
pay for their education will most likely will be paying off this loan for most of their lives.
According to Austin (2013) a total of 37 million Americans owe over $1 trillion and while many
default, some will probably die before their loans are paid off. Furthermore attempts to discharge
student loans through bankruptcy will probably fail because the courts holds student loans to
very strict standards. This therefore puts into question the true value of a college education since
the high cost of college education launches students into great debt before they even start having
an income. One could therefore argue that a college education is unfairly priced
The price of college education has increased more than any other good in the US
economy since 1978. According to Andrew Rossi College prices have increased by 1120% sin...
