Language of The Lighthouse
In the only recording that remains of Woolf's voice, she discusses the significance of words. Select one word or phrase and write about its relationship to the passage from which it comes and the first third of "The Window."
Some questions you might consider (you need not address them all) include: How would the passage differ if Woolf had used different language? What is the tone of your word? What role does its sound have? How is your word related to themes and topics in the novel, such as family, time, and art? How does Woolf's discussion of words alter your sense of her words?
We will share our responses.
Spend 25-30 minutes writing a paragraph analyzing the role of logos, ethos, pathos, or kairos in at least one of the NYIT advertisements we discussed last time. Your paragraph should resemble the form of a paragraph on page 164 of Understanding Rhetoric. Compose your paragraph in a Google Document.
Exchange responses with a classmate, sharing your Google Docs with each other. Compose a 250 word response to your classmate’s writing. Address their strengths, weaknesses, and aspects they could consider in the future.
After discussing you findings, share your document with the instructor.
Interpreting NYIT Advertisements
Working in small groups, select at least one NYIT advertisement here and use the Questions for Rhetorical Analysis at the end of Issue One of Understanding Rhetoric to interpret the visual arguments it makes and their significance. After 15-20 minutes you will introduce the class to the arguments that your commercial makes and the connection you made to Understanding Rhetoric.
