Portfolio Assignment 1.1:Print the Declaration of Independence, English homework help

Question Description

Whenever you hear the word analysis, you should think of small pieces. An analyst is someone who breaks something down into smaller sections so they can better understand how those pieces work together to make a more effective whole. You will do a rhetorical analysis of the Declaration of Independence. 

  1. Print the Declaration of Independence from the Charters of Independencewebsite.
  2. Do a quick “get to know you” read through. 
  3. Write down the purpose of the document in one succinct sentence. 
  4. Find three different colors of highlighters, pens, or colored pencils.
  5. Read it again, more thoroughly. Slow down and mark sections where Thomas Jefferson uses ethos in one color, pathos in another, and logos in the last. You should mark up a lot of the document—Jefferson really knew his rhetoric.
  6. Finally, write a one-page paper, including your explanation of each element of the Declaration. Organize it like this:
  • 1st paragraph: the purpose of the document
  • 2nd paragraph: the ethos of the document
  • 3rd paragraph: the pathos of the document
  • 4th paragraph: the logos of the document
  • 5th paragraph: the effectiveness of the rhetoric in the document

Please format and submit your assignment according to the instructions in the syllabus.
