Instructions: Choose a movie speech from AmericanRhetoric.com and write an essay of 3-5 pages
using the concepts in this class to analyze why this speech is effective.
●You may analyze the speech’s chosen style (i.e., whether it is grand, restrained, or mixed), its
use of the three modes of persuasion (logos, pathos, and ethos), or any other rhetorical appeals
it makes.
○E.g., Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address appeals to our common humanity that ties us
all together as opposed to striking the tone that the good guys won and the bad guys
lost.
●We ask you to select a speech from that bank so that your TAs can easily access the speech
and assess whether your argument is right.
●If you really want a movie that’s not on the AR bank, please confirm with your TA so that
they know how to find the speech you’re analyzing.
Guidelines for Success:
●Do not just summarize the speech. This essay is an opportunity to dissect the elements of
the speech in the structure of a short essay.
●Refer to the structure of a 3-5 page essay. A strong essay structure will begin with an
introduction and thesis (the argument and the ‘so-what’), followed by your body paragraphs
to express your arguments, tied together by a conclusion that summarizes the
thesis/‘so-what’ while also providing a ‘what-now’.
